Tips & Tricks for Vegetarians & Vegans
- Get some vegetarian & vegan cookbooks, so you don't have to modify recipes and have plenty of dishes to choose from.
- Experiment with how you prepare tofu. It has a bad reputation, but it can be a great component of a meal if it's flavored and cooked right.
- Stock up on vegan snacks. Just because you're on a plant-based diet doesn't mean you can't have fun with your food.
- Consider a meatless diet for your dog, although of course you should talk to a vet before making this major change.
- It's not hard to get the protein you need from whole foods, but if you're a body builder or just concerned about protein intake, try mixing a vegan protein powder into a shake or smoothie.
- If you're making this change for health reasons, remember to create sustainable habits so that you don't lose steam after a week or two.
