Slow and SteadyWhile January can always begin with plenty of momentum and energy, February is when it’s easy to fall back into old habits. So it's better to make small, incremental changes than to get overwhelmed revamping your entire diet overnight.
You may feel that making the transition to a more plant-based diet means entering an exotic, unknown land. However, it's important to remember that you probably already eat a lot of nutrient-packed plants already. Start exploring new food to add to your diet a little at a time gradually incorporating changes into your lifestyle.
Making too many changes too quickly could set you up for failure and frustration later on.
That way you can be confident with a more nutrient-rich plant-based diet.
Make Simple SwapsCarrying the theme of starting small, simple swaps like cow’s milk to cashew, almond, soy, oat or coconut milks can be an easy place to start.
Vegetable protein solutions like tofu could take the place of traditional meat, and with a little planning you can also get plenty of protein from your meal by combining beans, legumes, rice, peas, quinoa to bring you a complete protein solution as an alternative to meat traditionally being the centrepiece of your meal while still eating traditional homely meals such as chilli con carne, pasta sauces packed with fibre and protein.
