Going Vegan

Tips for Becoming a Vegan

Regardless of your reasoning for going vegan, the transition can be challenging. A transition directly from a traditional American diet to a strict vegan diet can be nearly impossible for many to accomplish. Therefore, many people becoming vegan choose to undertake the transition in a number of smaller steps. This usually begins with a transition to a less strict form of vegetarianism, such as a diet that allows eggs and dairy products.

Transitional Foods Help with Going Vegan

During this phase, many people employ the use of transitional foods. These are foods that resemble the tastes and textures of meat products. Typical examples of meat transitional foods include hotdogs, sausages links and patties, bacon, and burgers that are designed to taste like the real thing, but are made from soy, wheat, or another vegetable product. There are also other transitional foods that help people in the later steps of becoming a vegan. These include cheeses, milk substitutes, and egg substitutes made from soy, nuts such as almonds, and seeds such as hemp.

Lifestyle Transitions of Going Vegan

People who choose to become vegan also typically transition their lifestyle away from consumer items that use animal products. This can include getting rid of clothing, such as shoes and jackets, made from leather or other animal products. Vegans also avoid certain products made by companies that are known to test their products on animals, or those companies who manufacture items used in animal testing. It takes time to learn about all of these potential issues and research the companies that vegans typically avoid; therefore this transition to a vegan lifestyle often mirrors the transition to a vegan diet. As the diet becomes more strict, the lifestyle follows suit.

Going Vegan on a Caribbean Cruise

For many the full emersion of the Holistic Holiday at Sea Vegan Cruise provides the education, support, and time of transition that are necessary to successfully convert to a vegan diet. Having access to the three vegan meals served each day on the cruise eliminates the need to cook unfamiliar foods, while exposing guests to a wide variety of vegan dishes. The combination of the vegan food with the numerous cooking classes, workshops, and lectures describing the health and environmental benefits of a vegan diet, provide the push many people need to make the transition to a vegan diet. Guests leave the cruise with the information and motivation to continue practicing the vegan lifestyle and diet on their own. There is no better catalyst to going vegan than the Holistic Holiday at Sea Vegan Cruise.
