Being veganish is not about what you can't eat. There's nothing you can't eat; the difference in moving toward a plant-based diet is simply what you choose to not eat. It's about adding in amazing new foods. There are an abundance of food varieties that are not sourced from animals.
Simple swaps are a great first step. You can find a substantial variety of great alternatives to most of the things you're used to eating that are sourced from animals. Beyond exploring your grocery store, health food and natural food stores tend to offer the widest variety of plant-based, whole-food staples.
