    I became a vegetarian yesterday. And as a result I have no idea what I’m doing. I’d like to get to where I’m a full-fledged vegan ASAP and don’t know how. When I go to Wal-Mart are there seals or anything that indicate being a vegan product? And when I go on road trips with my baseball team we only really stop at McDonalds and other fast food joints. What can I do?

    Well at fast food places, there are usually side salads that are vegetarian. (They aren’t always vegan.) If there isn’t a label saying if the product is vegan or vegetarian, you can always check the ingredients. Another good idea is cooking your own food. Pasta and veggies tends to be super-easy, and there are tons of vegan recipes out there.

    My favorite tip for new veg*n people: get enough points at peta2 to earn (or just buy) the vegan college cookbook. The recipes there are super-easy, cheap, and delicious.

    Good Luck!

    All food products should have to indicate whether or not the product is vegan/vegetarian.
    That’s something that is long overdue.
    For now, still have to read the ingredients ūüôĀ

    Looks like people have gave you some great advice! (:

    But here are some tips:
    1. Read the ingredients! It will always usually say contains milk, eggs, etc. on there somewhere on the item for allergies reasons. (I always read the whole list of ingredients just to make sure.)
    2. Best you stay away from steakhouses, bbq restaurants and stuff like, and you will most likely start to crave meat like two or three weeks in. Stay strong. It will past.
    3. Fast food chains?! Here’s a list ;3
    4. Mistakes will happen. Don’t let it define you as a bad veg.

    And that’s all I got ): Sorry I couldn’t help much….
    Best of wishes to you, though! :33

    Whenever I know I’m going on the road I always take a box or two of vegan high-energy bars.
    I like…
    Vega Energy Bars
    Simply Bars
    NuGO Slim Non-Dairy: Crunchy Peanut Butter (Protein 17g)
    NuGO Slim Non-Dairy: Espresso (Protein 16g)
    or make your own…Homemade Vegan Superfood Bars
    I also take a jar of peanut butter…you can usually order a bagel or even a plain bun and ask for jelly packets if they have them. And I take a few little jars of roasted soybeans or roasted chickpeas. You can carry them into a restaurant in a jacket pocket and quietly sprinkle them on plain salads or veggie bowls…or just eat them straight from the jar. Yumza!
    You can also order FREE Pocket Shopping Guides from peta2!
