How to go vegetarian or vegan, and continue eating vegetarian or vegan, including a gradual approach.

SHOW YOURSELF COMPASSION

Cutting out meat doesnt have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. For many people, the best way to change how they eat is to do it gradually. Whether your goal is to go vegetarian today or to simply eat less meat, here are some options for making the switch. And remember, this isnt about being perfect. If there are a couple of favorite foods you just cant give up right now, work on everything else. And if you fall off the wagon, you can always get right back on.

Make Your Home Meat-Free

For some people its easier to eat vegetarian at home than it is when dining out. So consider using up the meat you already have, and then re-stocking your pantry with beans, whole grains, vegetables, nuts, soups, and other meat-free fare. You can try animal-friendly versions of your favorite foods, and experiment with fun new recipes.

CUT OUT THE MOST SUFFERING

Are you against animal cruelty, but not sure you can give up meat altogether? Start by cutting out the foods that harm the most animals. The majority of the animals we eat are chickens and fish and they are probably the most abused animals in the world. By replacing chicken, eggs, and fish with other options, you can prevent a tremendous amount of animal abuse.

Go Vegetarian Right Away

If you do decide to cut out meat all at once, just remember that none of us is perfect. If you find yourself cheating once in a while, dont beat yourself up. You can always start fresh at your next meal, or try one of the approaches above. Having an approach you can stick with is more important than being perfect from day one.
