Tips For Making Your Transition To Veganism Easier

Here are some tips to make your transition to veganism easier whether you’re doing Veganuary or thinking of a permanent lifestyle/diet change. Hope they help!

Wait a while before trying substitutes- Your taste buds get really used to the taste of non-vegan food if you have, like most people, been eating them your whole life. However, your taste buds slowly change over time and if you start introducing vegan substitutes slowly into your meals you’ll begin to enjoy them more. If you just randomly start using substitutes you’re more likely to not enjoy them because they won’t be the exact same as what you’re used to. Personally, I hated cheese substitutes when I first tried them but now after about a year I love them!

Try substitutes- I would suggest start add vegan substitutes to your food before you even go fully vegan. And don’t be afraid of substitutes. They’re a great way to eat what you love just that these will be plant based. I’m going to be honest and tell you that not all substitutes are great but keep looking and of course do your research. Don’t give up because you can’t find great substitutes instead read what other vegans have to say and what substitutes they love.

Appreciate that vegan foods taste different- Like I said substitutes aren’t always great and even though some of them are really close to the non-plant based foods they are not always the exact same. I’ve noticed a lot of people like to compare vegan foods to non-vegan foods by making them look, smell and taste like non-vegan food (which is great if you’re into that!) but instead of always trying to eat substitutes I would recommend trying to enjoy vegan food for what it is. It tastes unique and wonderful and a vegan diet can open up your taste buds to a whole variety of new tastes and flavours so try to enjoy them for what they are.

Do a lot of research- Before going fully vegan (and even after!) make sure to do a lot of research so you don’t end up lacking vitamins or negatively effecting your health. Veganism is not always easy and it takes a while to get it perfectly right.

Don’t give up- A lot of people give up on veganism after a while. Some think it’s too hard while some have health issues. My advice would be that instead of giving up try doing more research. If you’re lacking something do research on how to get that on a vegan diet and try that first. If you absolutely feel like it’s not working for you though don’t force yourself to keep eating vegan.

Top Tips for Veganuary 2019

Good luck to everyone trying out veganuary I hope these tips help!

That Vegan Polerina

This new year is set to be the biggest for participation in Veganuary (a challenge to try the vegan lifestyle for the month of January). Living a vegan lifestyle has become and is becoming increasingly easier, with a wide range of products landing in shops around the world, but as with any lifestyle and diet change, it is not without its challenges.

As a “new” vegan (I transitioned late September 2018), I thought I’d share my favourite tips, tricks, and words of advice regarding the journey into veganism. Best of luck to everyone participating in Veganuary, or otherwise beginning their vegan transition in 2019!

  1. Educate yo’self!!!  There are a number of reasons why people participate in Veganuary/are interested in trying veganism, but three main reasons people stay vegan are 1) for the animals, 2) for the planet, and 3) for their own health (or any combination of these reasons). Whether you…

Bye Bye 2018

So much has happened this year I thought I would talk about it in the last post of 2018. Firstly, I finally got to do a bunch of History courses at university which was amazing because last year was great and I got to do some fun random courses but I’m here for the history and I was so happy to do a majority of history courses this year!

I also was able to travel more which was so fun and if you’ve been following me for a while now you know travelling has been one of my biggest goals.

I tried so many new things which all gave me crazy anxiety but it was also super fun and exciting which is also something I really wanted to do in 2018 and was able to achieve!

Image result for scared gif

One of my biggest achievements was reaching 5000 followers and finally being able to learn how to balance university and blogging. I am so happy that so many of you chose to follow this blog and all of you guys are so sweet and interactive I love hearing your thoughts in the comments it always makes my day!

I also had a great year mentally and emotionally. I’ve always had trouble expressing myself but I think I’m finally getting better at it which is helping with my anxiety. I am also learning to deal with my anxiety better and learning how to do things even if they do make me anxious because my anxiety should not be the one in control.

I also ate a healthier plant based diet which was something I had been trying to do for a really long time.

What do I want from 2019? Well to keep doing all these things that are making me feel better and to do more things like these and to try and remove as much negativity from my life as possible. (I’ll be posting my 2019 resolutions soon so look out for that for more details on my goals for 2019!)

How Many Of My Resolutions Did I Keep

So before this year started I posted a bunch of resolutions that I wanted to achieve this year which is not something I usually do because I’m not a big fan of the whole making resolutions thing but a bunch of other bloggers were doing it and it seemed fun so I thought I would give it a try. So I thought since the year is almost over which resolutions I kept and which ones didn’t work out as planned! To check out the resolutions post click here. 

Make more time for blogging 

This was the first resolution I had on the list and thankfully I have kept it… for the most part. I mean sure sometimes I get lazy or really busy and can’t post regularly but especially recently I feel as though my excitement and inspiration for blogging has really come back and I have been trying to blog at least 5 times a week which has been amazing! It has really helped increase traffic and followers and most importantly it has given me more enthusiasm to write more!

Eat healthier

I started eating a plant-based and much healthier diet. I mean I’m not going to act like I did not eat any junk food because you know I did but I ate healthier junk food and a much healthier diet in general which is what I think counts! I love this resolution because it really made the biggest impact in my life and I genuinely feel better then ever thanks to the changes in my diet!

Write at least one page a day

I tried you guys. I really did. But I’ve been super busy and I just have not had the time or energy to keep up with this one. But maybe next year!

Study in advance and don’t leave assignments for last minute

Yeah… this one just didn’t happen…

Image result for i messed up gif

Explore more

I did! I tried new stuff that was kind of scary (thanks social anxiety) and also made a bunch of new friends!

Image result for i did gif

Read more

I’m a history major so a large part of my studies is just reading so I didn’t have a lot of time to read other stuff but I did read a couple of books that I wanted to review which was so fun. Plus, I think it counts as reading even if it’s historical sources and stuff!

Build a snowman (that one’s just for fun!)

This one hasn’t happened yet but there’s still time!
