    So, I am taking the steps to become a vegetarian, then a vegan. Yes, I am doing it in steps, because I’ve tried numerous times to just quit eating meat and dairy and eggs all at once, and it never worked out for me.

    I was a vegetarian for years when I was a kid, and for whatever reason I stopped. I am completely ready to go veg again. But, I have a few questions and need some help.

    1. Where can I get reading materials (cheap or free)? Anything I order or something like that (I know PETAs Starter Kit, but I was wondering if there were any other websites with starter kits or guides or anything).

    2. I DON’T have a lot of money, so eating a different diet than my family is going to be difficult, because they really can’t afford to buy two separate meals every night (and no them going veg is NOT in the question). So, what are some good, cheap meals? And do you know of any good vegetarian/vegan websites, like where you can order food, that doesn’t charge an outrageous amount for shipping?

    3. My boyfriend is a huge meat eater. I know that bothers most vegetarians, but it doesn’t bother me so much. However, I don’t know how to explain to him why I’m doing this. I’ve tried, and he just doesn’t get it. He thinks I won’t be healthy, or be able to eat anything. How do I explain to him I’ll actually be HEALTHIER?

    Any other tips or advice? I would love it 🙂

    That’s all I suppose; please no judgement for not being a vegan just yet, I just need some advice and help. Thank you 🙂
