What’s a Girl To Do?
Our pal Hot Nerd Girl has a friend who recently realized she needs to give up some of the former pillars of her diet and is feeling quite lost and in need of specific alternatives. I’m so glad she thought to ask us to put together some info!
So I wanted to write the ultimate guide to making anything vegan… and then I remembered there’s no need to reinvent the wheel here! With so many experts on the scene, I simply gathered a few of the most comprehensive resources.
First Things First: Don’t worry!
At first it seems daunting to change your whole way of thinking about food, but there are as many incredible, delicious alternatives out there as there are reasons to give up the old stuff. You’ll be a whiz in no time with a little help from your friends.
It’s easier now to be vegan than ever before! It’s often clearly listed on packaging, and so many restaurants are informed and ready to bring you exactly what you need.
