In honor of Vegetarian Awareness Month, and for all of you out there who are taking the 30 Day Veg Pledge, here are 10 things that you can do to help you stick to your new and exciting lifestyle…
1. Spring Clean Your Cupboards – If it isn’t aligned
with your new way of eating, get rid of it! Whether you trash it, give
it away or donate it to a local shelter, just make sure it isn’t
anywhere near you. The transitional phase is always the hardest and out
of sight really is out of mind when it comes to food.
2. Don’t go to the Supermarket on an Empty Stomach- If you do, you’re asking for trouble. Research shows
that if you go grocery shopping when you’re hungry you’re much more
likely to make unhealthy food choices and end up with a trolley full of
junk food. Avoid derailing your new diet by having a snack such as a
piece of fruit before heading to the store.
3. Get Your Family On Board – Talk with your friends
and family about your decision to go veg and express how much it would
mean to you if they could join in or at least be understanding. Making
multiple meals to please everyone’s palette isn’t much fun so getting
them on board will make your life a whole lot easier, even if it is just
some of the time!
