    I have always wanted to become a vegetarian and in the last couple of weeks I have been moving towards slowing down my meat consumption. I am now interested in becoming a vegan but I don’t know if I should just quit animal products immediately or take it slow. I tried slowly quitting but it bothers me every time I consume anything that came from an animal. I want to just quit completely but I’ve heard that can be bad for my health. What should I do?

    Hey @newyork409,

    Congratulations on making the compassionate choice and wanting to be vegan! The journey to veganism is a personal one. I would suggest that you do what is better for you and what you feel comfortable doing. I know people that went vegetarian first and then vegan, and I know people that went vegan straight off the bat. It’s all a matter of comfort and personal choice.

    Vegan diets are extremely healthy! So, no, becoming vegan will not be bad for your health, just make sure to eat your fruits, veggies, grains, nut, and legumes.

    Here are some recipes to get you started:

    Good luck!

    Jose :)

    That is what I am going to try and if I substitute my protein efficiently then I think it will be fine. Thank you!

    Most people say to do it slowly. I personally took the approach of dropping everything all at once. I experienced no health issues because of it and my cravings died out a lot faster. It made it easier for me, but you have to choose what works best for you.
