I get a lot of questions about why I’ve chosen a plant-based diet, from am I getting enough protein to how does it keep my gut healthy. And, of course, how to do it, from those who are interested in making the switch. When you first embark on the journey towards a plant-based diet, it can seem intimidating and overwhelming.

I’ve been on a plant-based diet for such a long time that I often forget what it takes to make the switch. It may seem hard at first, and you may have some bumps in your road, but if you keep trying, you’ll make it. The time frame is just a guideline, feel free to stay as long as you like at any step.

Reasons for Switching to a Plant-Based Diet

There are many reasons why people switch to a plant-based diet, from health reasons to compassion for animals. Your reasons are your own, so don’t worry if no one else understands your diet.

Tips for Your Plant-Based Journey

There are a few aspects of healthy eating that I find to be key to success. Here are some tips to help keep you on track.

Prepare Your Own Food

Preparing your own food is key to success when switching to a plant-based diet. Having control over how your food is made will help you achieve success. But you don’t have to spend hours and hours cooking. Try these simple recipes to get started.

Meal Plan and Food Prep

Meal planning and food prep are key no matter what type of diet you follow. Taking a little extra time during the weekend to meal prep will save you so much time during the week. And it helps keep you on track. So, make a plan, make your grocery list, and spend a little time chopping vegetables.

A Note from GR8NESS

Whenever you change your diet, it’s important to pay attention to how you feel. When you switch to a plant-based diet, you’re more energetic, free from problematic symptoms, and in balance. If this isn’t the case, or you start to feel worse, something is not working.

You may need to tweak your diet, check your protein, make sure you are eating the best leafy greens for your health, and nutritious nuts. Check with your physician if you have any food sensitivities or other health issues, or see a nutritionist to help you develop a plant-based diet that meets all your needs.
