When I went vegan, I had the hardest time figuring out what to eat. I thought vegans were stuck to salads and nuts, but that is the farthest thing from the truth! There are vegan replacements for everything, you just have to find them.
For meat, I suggest using the plant-based meats as a way to wean yourself off of real meat. These look-alike meats are great for helping anyone make the vegan transition seamlessly.
There are many amazing dairy options that are actually healthier than real milk. Replace cow's milk with any nut milk in recipes and it will turn out exactly the same!
