Veganise your favourite comfort foods
Making your favourite comfort foods vegan has never been easier—all you need to do is replace the animal products with vegan alternatives! From mac and cheese to curd rice, almost everything can be veganised by simply switching a few ingredients.
Plan your meals
Planning your meals in advance can help ensure that you’re satiated through the week. Check out these great meal plans or come up with your own!
Accidentally vegan foods
You’ll be surprised to find that many store-bought foods are “accidentally” vegan. Simply read the ingredients listed on food packages the next time you walk down a grocery store aisle. From chocolates to namkeen, you’ll find a wide range of packaged foods that happen to be free from animal products!
When reading ingredients lists, you may come across allergen warnings such as “may contain milk solids.” Don’t worry—allergen warnings are usually for people who have severe food allergies and it doesn’t necessarily mean that the product contains dairy or other animal products.
Eating high-protein foods such as beans, lentils, peanuts, and vegetarian meats will meet your daily protein requirements and provide satisfying meals. To cover your bases, consider taking a daily multivitamin with B12, or eating B12-fortified foods, such as soymilk and cereals. Click here for more in-depth nutrition tips.
Connect with like-minded people
Networking with vegans can make your journey easy and fun! Joining local vegan groups on Facebook or Meetup.com is a great way to meet like-minded people. Want some one-on-one support? Sign up for our Vegan Mentor Program to get personalised help from an experienced vegan.
Go at your own pace
When you start making changes in your diet, do it at a pace that’s comfortable for you. Whether it is substituting a few animal products every week or quitting meat overnight, remember that veganism isn’t about purity, it’s about making choices that cause as little harm as possible.
