A writer that I follow, Seth Godin, said:
“Change, real change, is the result of focused persistence. It’s easy to get sort of excited for a little while.
The challenging part, and the reason that change doesn’t happen as often as it should is that we get distracted. Today’s urgent is more urgent than yesterday’s important.
Keep showing up. If it matters, keep showing up.”
Now, Seth is talking about marketing and entrepreneurship. But the message applies to anything that matters. What matters to me is helping people learn how to make healthful, vegan eco-friendly choices in a way that’s sustainable long term.
I understand that this kind of change doesn’t happen overnight for everyone. And that’s ok. It takes time for your habits and your tastebuds to adjust. And even when we get there, none of us are perfect.
Here are my 7 tips for transitioning to vegan:

Ready to make this healthy vegan thing a habit?
If you want to learn more about being a healthy vegan, if you want to keep baby stepping with me, if you want some guidance and accountability, then I’d like to be there for you. I know it gets overwhelming with all the info and noise out there. You probably know what you want to do, but it’s hard to know where to start.
Let’s start with the next 31 days. I’ll show up in your inbox each morning with a nutrition tidbit, a recipe to try (or just read and drool), and the reminder that there are people like us out there, doing things that matter for our health, for the animals, and for the planet. We’ll get into everything from portion sizes to reducing gassiness to dealing with cravings and eating out.
You don’t have to shout from the rooftops that you’re vegan – unless you want to, of course. We’re gonna ease into this like a new pair of jeans. Baby steps, baby.
Let’s make it happen, drip by drip.
