Rawvana's Tips for New Vegans


TIP 1 – CHANGING YOUR VISION

Contrary to popular belief, eating vegan can be affordable, and getting proper nutrients is easy to do. All it takes is proper research, but more importantly it requires a change in outlook. It’s important to start the journey with an open mind and see it as a learning process!

TIP 2 – TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME

Going vegan doesn’t have to be an overnight thing – that can be overwhelming. Instead it’s best to transition as slowly as possible so the body can get used to eating differently

TIP 3 – SUBSTITUE FOODS!

Instead of stressing about all the things that cannot be eaten anymore, dive into exploring all the amazing things that are fine to eat while still meeting nutritional needs! During the transition, its ok to eat things like vegan eggs, to satisfy cravings. Once people are more used to being vegan, it’s important to shift to a diet based in whole foods.

TIP 4 – FIND INSPIRATION

Don’t continue hanging around people that make discouraging comments or are not 100 percent supportive. Rawvana has an online support group for subscribers.

TIP 5 – EAT (THE RIGHT FOODS) IN ABUNDANCE

It’s possible to eat unhealthy foods even when vegan, so it’s important to make the right choices and go for Whole Foods! When whole foods are consumed, they can be eaten in abundance rather than restricting portions.  

TIP 6 – STAY INFORMED

Making healthy choices is easier with knowledge.

TIP 7 – PLAN YOUR MEALS

Meal prepping is LIFE! Preparing in advance makes it so much easier not to make bad impulse decisions when hungry.

TIP 8 – SHOP SMART

Going vegan is as expensive as the person wants. There are tons of affordable options out there. It’s important to price match and when possible buy in bulk on things like rice, beans, flower and more.
