Easing the Transition to a Vegetarian Lifestyle

Part of the Living Vegetarian For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Switching to a meatless diet can be difficult if you’ve been raised with typical Western eating habits. Becoming a vegetarian is rewarding, so hang in there! As you strive for the vegetarian ideal, gradually cut meat out of your life, and use these tips to ease the transition:

  • Get educated. Read books, attend lectures and cooking demonstrations, and talk with experienced vegetarians for tips on making the switch.

  • Set realistic expectations. Mastering new skills and changing long-standing habits take time. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you experience setbacks now and then.

  • Keep meals simple. The best recipes use short lists of familiar, easy-to-find ingredients and require no more than basic cooking skills.

  • Be low-key about your choice to go vegetarian. Explain your rationale to adults and older children who ask, but let others decide for themselves what they will and won’t eat.
