[UltraVid id=12 ]Hey, it’s Kristin and you have decided that this January you’re going to embark on the most beautiful journey of your life you are gonna quit meat and dairy and go vegan that wasn’t crazy at all big congratulations to you for making this decision your future ancestors are gonna be very grateful for you not destroying their future or very grateful but at least we’re on the side of people that weren’t destroying their future kind of depends on how the future ends up looking but keeping it real your life is going to change dramatically if you make this change because it’s just gonna be a thousand times more awesome I’m so cringy today so I compiled a list of the best tips that I found online and combined them with some of mine that I think are super important because I know that a lot of people make going vegan a new year’s resolution and what’s important to me is to help you do this as effectively as possible and also not struggle so that you can keep being vegan for infinity for step number one I would say sign up for the January I have the website link below because they do send you I think daily e-mails with helpful information and recipes I haven’t tried it to be honest because I was vegan a long time before I learned about be January but I know it’s been useful for a lot of people so I am definitely recommending that as the first thing you should do and also if you have a calendar make sure you mark your calendar today I’m going vegan January 1st so that you can see it it can inspire you and make you feel like you have to do it because it’s on the calendar next step is to make sure you watch documentaries like cowspiracy forks over knives Dominion earthlings definitely listen on YouTube to the speech the greatest speech you’ll ever hear by Gary Yourofsky that’s a really good one also what the health is really good and I’m just gonna link below all my favorite documentaries in order of importance to me personally so yeah if you’re gonna watch something just start from the top and then slowly keep watching more and more now look into your fridge and pantry do you have animal products in there if you live alone and you have control over all of your food I would say take that and give it away you do not want to have those foods in your home because the first month is very unstable months a lot of unpredicted things are gonna happen so it’s best to just sort of remove the temptation from your home so that you it’s so good it’s much harder for you to slip pop definitely don’t throw it away just give it to someone that’s gonna need it someone that you probably really dislike also just so maybe speeds up next I would say try and get your loved ones on board friends or family or your significant other because it is a lot easier Oh Gigi no honey no because it is a lot easier if you have help and try as much as you can to also watch the documentaries with other people because then you know they kind of also pushes them to to follow this along with you so on vegan food and living I found some really good tips one of them is to follow meal plans especially if you’re into planning your meals and just are the more organized person to be honest I’m not the type of person that would do that and that’s not how I transitioned into veganism for me I what I did if you are lazy I would say since you’re not gonna plan your meals just take your favorite meals and veganize them or take meals that are already vegan that you’ve been eating for me it was pasta and just eat more of it in the beginning another thing that I would say is make sure that you’re eating enough because especially if you’re making a switch to a hell Phoebe can diet a lot of the stuff that you’re gonna be eating it has a lot less calories than you know meat and dairy so just make sure that you’re eating enough if you feel like you’re hungry all the time or hangry all the time or not satisfied with your food it’s because you’re not eating enough so either add a little more fat in your food like healthy fats avocado extra virgin olive oil nuts seeds or increase things like protein so even more lentils eat more chickpeas because those are a little higher in calories and more satisfying so that’s my advice for that and the other thing is be open to trying new things I know that until I went vegan I honestly hadn’t even tried half the food that exists in this world meat and dairy kind of keeps our dietary preferences very narrow-minded when in reality there’s just so many different foods that we could be eating their seitan and tofu and chickpea cookie dough and banana ice cream and there’s so many different plants vegetables fruits that I wasn’t eating before and there’s just so many different and new things that I tried that I really love now and my diet is just so much more diverse and interesting so definitely don’t be afraid to try out new stuff because chances are you going to like I found this tip on self.com and it is jazz up your food with condiments and that is so true for me I think that condiments just if especially if you’re like me and you’re not really into cooking and a little bit lazy with just anything that’s kitchen related and food-related condiments are really gonna save your life so find just different vegan condiments barbecue sauce and heaney mustard just experiment with the different flavors that you like and just add those to your food to make it more exciting if you’re not really a great chef so eating at home is working at it’s going really well but the dreadful time that you have to go and eat out is approaching and you don’t know what to do so the first thing that I would recommend is either download Foursquare or happy cow or both I would recommend both because if you’re not really getting any results on Foursquare then you can check with happy cow or if you’re not getting any results with Abaco you can check with Foursquare you can use those apps to search for vegan or vegetarian restaurants or I think they also show you restaurants that have vegan and vegetarian options and then the other tip that I have to give you is to not be afraid to ask your waiter what is inside a meal or if they can veganize a meal and if you’re too shy to do that just think of this okay when you go to a restaurant you’re giving people money to make something for you to eat that’s gonna go inside your body and most of the time none of us care to ask and figure out what exactly is in this concoction that we are shoving in our mouths and putting in our bodies I mean it’s kind of crazy if you think about it I don’t know the bread could be made out of yoga mats or like the hot dog you ordered contains puppy fetus you’re never gonna know if you don’t ask so just don’t be afraid ask and ask your waiter for help to make you recognize something if there are no bacon options on the menu and honestly if the menu has zero vegan options and they can’t make anything begin just ask your friends politely can we go somewhere else it’s not such a big deal for the last tip the first month of going vegan is always more tricky and I don’t think anyone has gone vegan the first month and didn’t have some mishaps or failures at some point I know for me my first month of going vegan I did slip up a few times okay it didn’t happen again but accidents are gonna happen also be prepared for that I’ve been vegan for almost five years now genique is everything okay she’s talking to the birds and you done I’ve been vegan for almost five years now and just last month I accidentally ate something that wasn’t vegan I thought the bread was vegan it wasn’t happened stuff like that is totally normal and you should not let it bring you down at all just get back up and go back to not eating innocent animals and also not destroying the planet for future generations since meat and dairy is one of the biggest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions so there’s that cow farts and that’s it welcome to the vegan Club we are a good-looking people and just make sure you enjoy it and have fun cuz there’s no reason not to you’re doing something fantastic for yourself for animals for the planet you should be happy and proud of yourself for doing that and that is it thanks so much for watching give this video a big thumbs up if you found it useful comment below letting me know
