    I did it for a variety of personal reasons, but what was the hardest part of this for you guys?
    Was it a gradual change? Or did you just go cold turkey of meat?
    Feedback is appreciated!

    I’ve been going in between vegetarian and eating meat for the past year and a half… at first, it was just for fun, but then I decided to go vegetarian as a new year;s resolution this year. And then while I was just on youtube one day I found Gary Yourofsky’s speech and I went vegan immediately…I wouldn’t eat what my dad was making that night for dinner because it had cheese in it!

    I was vegetarian for about a year and decided to be vegan. I found the happy medium between gradual and cold turkey. I bought a few vegan cookbooks and started finding recipes I really loved and also started making more and more of the vegan recipes you get in those vegetarian starter guides(Compassion Over Killing had the best, very few of their recipes call for ‘fake’ or ‘weird’ foods) and just went to town. It’s been about 4-5 years now, so my memory of the details are a little fuzzy haha
    I personally couldn’t do the gradual thing, like saying ok, I’m going to eat vegan 3 days a week or things along those lines, I would never be able to remember and would mess up haha. I tried that the first few times I tried vegetarian and failed beautifully. I just started removing foods that weren’t vegan and did my best for the first little bit and I also started exploring vegan milks, which is THE place to start. The only non vegan thing I kept around for a long time was bread. I didn’t work at the time, and my parents did not want to spend the money to buy Ezekiel brand bread. So I just ate what we always bought. Then I found Orowheat which was the bomb, then just a few weeks ago they changed their recipe and they no longer have ANY varieties that are vegan :(

    Nothing’s really hard anymore tbh… I’ve been doing it for 4 years now.
    Pescatarian for a year, vegetarian for 4-5 months, vegan since XD

    Congrats on a brilliant decision 😉

    I was vegetarian for a long time before going vegan, and I’d done that ‘cold turkey’ but with veganism it was a gradual process for me so I could find good alternatives and make sure I understood the diet.

    I’d been vegetarian for three years, and the time had come. I went straight into veganism and didn’t have much trouble. A few mistakes at first were almost inevitable.
