    I made the decision to start weaning off animal products yesterday, but I have no idea where to start. Help?

    Hey @thatoneasianmidget! For me, when I started going vegetarian, I just completely cut out all meats! I know for some people that may be pretty hard, so you could try cutting out one animal at a time. Also, try vegetables that you’ve never tried because you may end up liking them! You can also find alternatives to meat such as Boca burgers that they sell at most grocery stores in the freezer aisle. The articles in the lifestyle section of the site are very helpful! Check em out: http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle. Good luck! 🙂

    I started by finding vegan alternatives for the foods I “couldn’t live without” (for me, it was chocolate and cake!) whether it’s a shop-bought faux alternative or something you can make at home.

    Then just carry on eating everything that you usually do… but veganise it! Replace the meat in dishes with faux meats, extra vegetables, beans, lentils etc.

    Good luck 🙂

    Eating: I’ve already been a vegetarian my whole life, so I started off with getting rid of milk, then other dairy products. You can also find substitutes for animal by-products such as honey, gelatine and eggs (e.g. stevia, vegan marshmallows, egg replacer or Veggs, etc.). Check what you eat most, and find a substitute for it.

    Clothing: I don’t wear wool, so I started putting a pile together of leather purse, shoes and belts for donation (good thing there wasn’t a lot of stuff). Also, I double checked all clothing labels to make sure.

    Cosmetics: I threw out the products that are current animal testers (some companies keep changing their policies or don’t 100% state what they do or are a flagship brand), and I returned any that were brand new. Again, most products I have are cruelty-free and/or vegan.

    Search on http://www.peta2.com for tons of recipes, clothing stores and their cruelty-free guide!
