This is where you need to seriously think about what is going to work best for you. There are plenty of ways to go vegan you just have to find what’s best for you. Here are some common options and some different ideas for ear approach. Find something that appeals to you and tailor it to your needs! Go vegetarian and then move onto vegan-ism either in one step or by cutting out dairy and eggs one at a time. Remove all meat from your diet, including fish and poultry. Take care not to increase your consumption of eggs and dairy to take the place of meat, focus on including more plant-based protein sources instead.
Some people find relying on vegan alternatives and convenience foods very helpful in easing the transition to vegan‐ism. They’re often high in protein, fortified with lots of vitamins and minerals, quick and easy to prepare, delicious, and familiar. However, some veggie burgers, veggie dogs, vegan delicious slices, etc. are highly processed. Once you begin to feel comfortable with your vegan lifestyle, the use of these products can be lessened. There's nothing wrong with eating the products in moderation, but they shouldn’t be used as your main source of vitamins, minerals, and protein for the long-term.
