How To Go Plant-Based

For your health, for the environment, or for the animals, there are plenty of good reasons to start eating a plant-based diet.

The question, of course, is how to get there … and how to make it last.

Some can make the transition “cold turkey,” so to speak. But in my experience and what I’ve seen with others, that’s not the best way to make a lasting change.

Instead, take small steps. For me, that meant eliminating four-legged animals from my diet for several months, then two-legged animals, and finally fish, before transitioning to vegan over the next two years.

Whatever pace you’re comfortable with, the collection of articles below is designed to help you make the transition and make it last.
