Going Vegan for 2020


#1 of 6 changes you can make in moving towards a more plant-based diet: drink (and make) oat and nut milks. One common argument against dairy products is that it is unnatural to consume them. Humans are the ONLY species that consumes milk in adulthood, they are also the ONLY species to drink the milk of other animals.
Oh yeah, and the industry is super cruel, essentially feeding into the meat industry. It is so easy these days to make milk at home - the easiest and cheapest being oat milk. It is also less wasteful - make what you need, when you need it!! #youcandoit #govegan #bekind #endspeciesism #cowsmilkisforbabycows #plantbasedmilks #goplantbased #vegansofig #gotnutmilk

#2 of 6 things you can do in moving towards a more plant-based diet - buy some nutritional yeast and get used to using it. Put it on salads, pizzas, and burritos. Nutritional yeast is a great source of protein, B vitamins and trace minerals.
Fortified nutritional yeast contains more B vitamins than unfortified varieties, as extra amounts are added during manufacturing. #youcandoit #veganuary #govegan2020 #vitaminb12 #vegansofig #nutritionalyeast #nutritionalvegan

#3 of 6 things you can do to move towards a plant-based diet - stock up on plant based proteins! There is no dearth of selection or flavor in the types of beans and grains you can choose from. Edamame, quinoa, and lentils are just a few beans and grains with the highest percentage of plant-based protein - not expensive and easy to cook. Make sure you pair with yummy spices and herbs!! #youcandoit #govegan #veganuary #vegan2020 #foryourhealth #fortheplanet #fortheanimals #nomorecholesterolmeds #nomorehighbloodpressure #nomoreexcuses

#4 of 6 things you can do to move towards a plant-based diet is realizing that it is not only your diet that matters, but also what you buy to wear, sit on, and sleep on. Leather, fur and feathers are in more products that you realize. How far you want to go as a vegan to cut these products out of your life is up to you, but it is important to be more aware of how wool, feathers and skin are taken from animals and turned into everyday products. What you might want to do with what is already in your wardrobe is also up to you. Don’t fall into the trap of other people’s judgement- but know the impact of your own. #youcandoit #leather #canadiangoose tortures #wearvegan #buyvegan #nowool #cotton #canvas #ethicalfashion #sustainablefashion #fortheenvironment

#5 of 6 things you can do when transitioning to a plant-based diet - pace yourself. Try as best you can to finish the vegan challenge this January, we are all rooting for you! And hopefully as you get through the month it will get easier. Remind yourself why you are doing it - whether for your health, the health of the planet, or for the animals. Plug into ted talks, educate and re-educate yourself particularly in moments of weakness. But know that this is your journey, not anyone else’s. You got this! #youcandoit #veganuary #milliondollarvegan #veganforbeginners #veganrecipes #vegansofig #veganuarychallenge #veganfortheplanet #veganforhealth #veganforanimals

#6 of 6 recommendations for those going for gold in 2020 (aka plant-based diet) is to stay connected! Social media has a plethora of groups that do well reminding followers of the importance of plant based living. There are also groups specifically designed to support you through the process. @peta is just one of many organizations that provide free 
#veganstarterkits. Subcribe to vegan influencers like @earthlinged or news sources like @plantbasednews and chefs like @fullyrawkristina for the healthy stuff or @thedorkyfrench for some absolutely yummy dessert recipes! Vegan food is anything but boring. And even when it might look unhealthy, with ingredients like chia, almond flour, oats and flax seeds, even the most gluttonous of treats can be healthy #youcandoit #veganuary #vegan2020 #goforgold #govegan #govegan2020 #stayconnected #vegansofig #welcome to a more #sustainable #moral #and more #ecologicallyfriendly #wayofliving and eating!
