Flipping the Switch to Vegetarianism

If you’ve made the commitment to becoming vegetarian yet finding it difficult to make the transition in your diet and your lifestyle, here’s some suggestions on how to make the switch a smoother ride.

Start out with committing to be a vegetarian for three days per week for the first couple of weeks. Start substituting ingredients in your favorite dishes to make them truly meatless. Throw in mushrooms to that marinara sauce to take the place of meatballs, or try some textured vegetable protein (TVP) in that lasagna recipe.

One of my very favourites:Veggie fajitas

Slice 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper, 1 yellow pepper and an onion. Fry in Olive oil with Cajun seasoning (if prefered) until soft and brown. Fill large flour tortillas with chopped lettuce, grated vegetarian cheese, the cooked veg and salsa. Top with vegan sour cream. (Try making this yourself, pretty easy.

Roll up and serve with salad and fat-free dressing.

Making simple replacements in your tried and true recipes can inspire you to stay on the vegetarian track once you see how delicious they can be.

Next, commit to five days per week for the next two weeks. Study the natural foods aisle at your local grocer, or make it a point to introduce yourself to the local health foods store. Treat yourself to a few new vegetarian products and try them in your next meal. The internet can be a great source of vegetarian recipes. And don’t limit yourself to being vegetarian only at home; most all restaurants offer delicious vegetarian entrees, so be sure to try them. You may even find inspiration for your home cooking by doing so.

Now all that’s left to do is add two more days on your week, and you’ll be a converted vegetarian all week long! After all, you’ve been doing it for a month now; you’ve become a seasoned rookie in the game.

Take pride in your accomplishments, because not only have you made positive changes in your lifestyle and eating habits, but for the environment and animals as well. Remember it’s not about being perfect; every animal-positive change you make it your diet has a great effect.

By rewarding yourself for each vegetarian choice you make, and you’ll be motivated to continue in the right direction.

We Donate our Profits to Small and most Needy Rescues

Did you know that we give all the profits from our sales to UK animal charities. Not the BIG ones, but the little guys who open their homes to take in strays and those poor souls who have gotten lost or injured, taken in to try and find owners. They pay for treatments, neutering, defleaing and vaccinating. There are many and they go out at all times to rescue, day and night. I'm happy to post when donations are made.
