Spring is a great time to make the transition to veganism.
My first attempt at becoming a vegan a few years ago left me feeling unfulfilled. The lack of food options left me with an attitude as a result of being ‘hangry.’

So, after considering the fact that I jumped into a plant-based mode with no prior research and hadn’t been a vegetarian for too long before making such a drastic lifestyle change, I made the decision to take a step back and spend some time learning how to prepare and enjoy more meatless meals, rather than eating beans and rice with a side of vegetables all day, every day, due to my lack of knowledge.
I took the time to research different foods and meals that were not only meatless but, were delicious and fulfilling, too.
