Being a vegetarian isn’t easy. In fact, it’s pretty difficult.
With so many meat-loving people who walk this earth, choosing to sustain life by eating only plant-based foods can make you somewhat of a spectacle for people that don’t understand. It can be hard to attend social gatherings, find restaurants, or cook for yourself when you switch to vegetarian. So why would anyone make that transition?
Becoming vegetarian means many healthy things for your body. Vegetarians tend to take in more nutrients, have more energy, and have lower cholesterol. They also have a lower risk of some pretty major medical conditions, such as heart disease and stroke. The better question might be why haven’t you transitioned yet?
Have you been making excuses about why you can’t make the commitment to only plant-based foods? Are you concerned of how to incorporate vegetarianism into your life without turning into a social outcast? Are you afraid of not having enough options of foods to eat?
It’s time to quit making excuses and start making changes! Switching to an all plant-based diet can be tricky, so here are some tips to help you get started.
