    It can definitely be challenging when you’re first starting out, but don’t worry! With each day it becomes easier and easier. Best wishes!

    Consider yourself supported.

    1. It usually takes a week or two for your brain to get used to the tastes of new foods, and to stop caring so much about the tastes of old foods. So just remember that it gets easier as time passes.

    2. Continue to remind yourself of what meat actually is and of how much pain, suffering, illness and death is associated with it.

    3. If you’re getting strong cravings that are making you seriously consider eating some meat, just get some mock meat products instead (veggie burgers, veggies dogs, veggie ribs, veggie jerky, etc.). If you can’t find a particular mock meat product in a store near you, order online and you’ll have it soon enough.

    4. If you stumble, don’t allow it to serve as an excuse to give up. Just put yourself back on track and keep going.

    That’s great! If you feel like it’s getting too hard or overwhelming by yourself, try recruiting a family member or friend. You could even convince your parents to have a meatless monday!

    Hey, congrats! Don’t worry, it get’s easier. Just stay strong, eat great veg food, remember the animals, and reap benefits! Stay healthy, keep your nutrients balanced, and have fun. (I burn incense when my family cooks bacon, I don’t like the smell at all, so that can help.) Encourage your family to have some nice veg meals with you, and good luck!

    I’m the only vegan in my family but hey, after over seven years of not eating meat my Dad (who even lives in another province) who loves fishing and hunting recently went pollotarian (has now been for over a month) so do not think you cannot end up making a difference.
