    I’ve bee vegetarian since September and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made!
    I really really really want to go vegan at some point. I went veg. cold-turkey (no pun intended) with no problem. But I know that going vegan is going to be much harder. I’ve recently been cutting back on dairy coffee creamer (which is honestly, one of my biggest dairy consumption items) and I’m proud of myself for that!
    But what are some other tips on cutting back on dairy products? Any help is much appreciated! <3

    Once you get in the habit, it’s second nature and you wonder why it seemed so difficult. Things like subbing 1/3 cup of applesauce for each egg when baking, and how to make a great tofu ricotta (seriously, it’s delicious) become the norm. What are some of your dairy weaknesses, I’m sure someone here can give you tips on how to replace them!

    I started taking weekly trips to some health-food places like Whole Foods, and simply strolled around looking at all the options. I found a lot of yummy dairy-free products that I easily substituted into my diet including vegan cheeses, meats, frozen foods, chips, ice-creams, and even Macaroni and “Cheese”.

    Hi Shelbibelle!
    Alisa at Go Dairy Free has a really good post on vegan creamers
    http://www.godairyfree.org/ask-alisa/ask-alisa-is-there-a-good-dairy-free-substitute-for-coffee-creamer
    and lots of excellent reviews like this one (with superyummy recipes too!)

    I agree with everyone else…being vegan means never having to sacrifice superamazingly deliciousness while living a totally compassionate life!

    I agree with @Styna, find replacements (that you like) for things that you eat on a daily/weekly basis and go from there.

    I had a serious chocolate addiction before I went vegan so I had to stop eating it altogether, then slowly reintroduce dark/dairy-free chocolate to prevent getting addicted again. I still love choccy now but I don’t eat more than one bar a day (before I was consuming 6 or more bars every day of the week!).
