It could be easier than you think.
Vegan food covers an amazing range of styles and tastes and can be inventive, fresh, comforting, gourmet, tasty and easy. As you change to a vegan diet, rather than focus on cutting out non-vegan foods, focus on crowding them out with new foods that you are discovering.
Nutritious vegan eating can be inexpensive and quick to prepare using ingredients found in any supermarket, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts and seeds, and herbs and spices. Fresh whole plant foods such as these should make up the bulk of your diet for optimum health.
Easy to make vegan dishes include stir fry, pasta, rice and beans, curry, sushi, salads, pad thai, quinoa, pizza, pancakes, french toast, waffles, burgers, soup, wraps, stew, sandwiches, cookies, ice-cream, cakes, pies and many more. To find recipes, just google the name of the dish plus "vegan".
As a general guideline, we prepare meals at home like this: we choose one starch which we cook in bulk (like rice, millet, wheat berries or pasta) and then prepare different meals every day with it.
When we use rice, we might make an Asian oil-free stir fry with tofu the first day, a tomato curry the next, and a quick sushi bowl the third day. Using millet, we cook up some Italian-flavored veggies (like zucchini, eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes) the first day, put the cold millet in a soup the second day, and mix it with beans, cucumber, and other raw veggies the third day.
Another option would be to choose pasta which you can enjoy with lentil Bolognese or marinara sauce the first day, then prepare a pasta salad the next, and have a casserole with some random veggies and sauce the third day.

I have always loved sharing food and showing others how tasty vegan, conscious food can be. After catering for retreats for years, I recently (and rather excitedly) published my first book ‘Vegan Kitchen’. It’s brimming with vegan, wheat-free and free from refined sugar recipes - the best for your food self-education program.
