Changing to a plant-based diet or becoming a vegan is a big decision. Therefore, if you sense a calling to do so, it is vital to make sure that it is carried out in a way that is slow, harmonious, and effortless.
It’s wonderful that you want to do more to protect the environment, but it’s critical that you carry out these actions for yourself as well. This is essential to keep in mind if you intend to follow through with it over the long haul.
If you don’t take care of yourself, you risk becoming malnourished, too hungry, or both, and ultimately giving up on the new diet.
The following are some useful suggestions to prepare yourself for a plant-based diet.
First, the most important step is ensuring you truly want to make this lifestyle change. There is nothing that will make you feel less in control of your life than allowing someone else to decide which foods you should and should not eat.
Your sense of self-worth and self-esteem are going to take a significant hit as a result of this. Make sure that it is something you genuinely want to accomplish and that it is a change that your body feels good doing before you commit to changing to a plant-based diet. If your answer is still yes, then that’s fantastic.
You have already accomplished more than half of your goal, and your body will be happy that you are paying attention to what it needs. Determine the month you will start, and then start gradually working your way up to it.
It is recommended to look at a number of easy-to-use plant-based recipes to get an idea of what you could eat in your plant-based diet. Before you go vegan entirely, it is wise to experiment with consuming one or two of these foods so that you are not totally unfamiliar with them.
So create a shopping list, after which you will head out to the store to purchase at least two or three of the indicated proteins so that you already have them at home before you start.
Everbest’s plant-based meat is a good choice to get started. Our mouthwatering plant-based meats such as veg. drumsticks, veg. Hong Kong barbeque meat, and veg. fish slices are just a few that will make getting started with a plant-based diet an easy feat.
To make it easier for yourself when you get started, stop eating any kind of meat and just stick to fish. Then you should begin incorporating some of the new vegetarian proteins three to four times each week.
Then, after a week, increase the frequency to up to five times per week and continue doing so until the final week, when you are ready to stop eating fish and switch to a diet consisting solely of plants.
Make sure you stock up on good quality, healthy vegan choices in your home so that you don’t end up starving and stuck in a situation where you don’t know what to eat and end up consuming a large bag of potato chips.
For instance, it is a good idea to stock your fridge with Everbest’s veg. black pomfret fish, veg. prawn and veg. seaweed fish.
In addition to that, make sure there is a good supply of vegetables at home.
This is the part where you get to have fun. If you’re going to do it, you might as well give it all you’ve got.
Take some vegan cooking classes, have fun trying out new recipes with your friends, ask them over for dinner, and experiment with different ways to prepare the meal.
It is very important that you are happy with your decision and that you continue to enjoy both eating and cooking. This will prevent you from experiencing feelings of deprivation.

There is a wide variety of vegetarian diets, so pick the one that best suits your lifestyle and preferences. For example, eggs and dairy products, as well as meat, poultry, fish, and seafood on occasion, are permitted on a flexitarian or semi-vegetarian diet.
Eggs, dairy products, fish, and seafood are allowed on a pescatarian diet (but no red meat or poultry).
For a vegetarian diet, eggs and dairy products are permitted, but no forms of meat, poultry, fish, or seafood should be consumed. Lastly, vegans consume no animal products.
