I always wanted to be a vegetarian, I love animals and eating meat is just too contradictory. Finally I made the decision last year, started as a pescatarian for the first months and now I'm a vegetarian.

However, the more I learn about vegetarianism the more I realise how animals are being treated, not only for meat production, but also for other animal products.

I realise veganism is a lot harder than vegetarianism. Animal products are hidden in so many foods, but I can't keep feeling satisfied with the thought that I'm saving some lives while I'm still supporting torture of innocent beings for eggs and dairy products.

So now I would love to take the next step and become completely vegan. Any tips on how to make the transition and what to look out for would be greatly appreciated.

Let's do this!

Pescetarianism is far kinder to animals than Vegetarianism. Fish, at least wild caught ones live a semi-normal life up till the time their caught. Production animals live horrendous lives from conception to death which is ultimately at the same slaughter houses all the animals who are killed for "Meat" do. Bottom line, Vegetarianism doesn't stop the abuse. I don't say that to be hurtful...it just doesn't.

I forgot my tip :P  My best advise is to start a whole foods diet and if you don't already, learn to cook, learn how to juice. Processed foods are not Vegan in many cases and their labels are unclear at best and in most cases down right mis-leading.

If you pick up an organic apple or mango and eat it, you know exactly what your consuming. If you bake a loaf of bread, you know exactly what went in to that bread. Rethink the way you eat because no one is looking out for you but you.
