You’re not alone.
If you’re starting to eat more plant-based food, it probably feels a bit overwhelming knowing where to start.
What do I put in my coffee?
How do I make my favorite desserts?
What about family holiday dinners?
Will my kids hate everything I make?
After many failed experiments, I discovered three keys to making the shift:
1. TAKE IT SLOW
Try just one new thing each day or each week, and shift your eating slowly. It’s easier and more sustainable. There’s no emergency. 🙂
2. HAVE AN ADVENTURE
Pretend you’re a mad scientist in a lab and play with new foods you’re curious about. Haven’t you always wanted to try tempeh?
3. FOLLOW YOUR TASTE
Start by adapting your family’s favorite recipes. No need to give up your comfort food! Plant-based poutine, here we come.
“May we keep our compassion alive by eating in such a way that reduces the suffering of living beings, stops contributing to climate change, and heals and preserves our precious planet.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
