Hey i love your blog! And i was wondering if someone like me, who likes to eat meat and comes from a place where meat is a like a god and such, can became a vegetarian? Im im the culinary school so i know a vegan diet is very good, ive been thinking about that simce last year, but know that my health is really bad i want to try it... Do you think i can be a vegetarian? Im very afraid of going well but having that desire of meat... Tips? What dp you think? Thanks and keep the good blog!!

Thanks! Sure.. anyone can go veg :) It’s easy if you get the right information to start with.

It takes about 3 weeks to break a food habit. So give it some time! Try substitutions like seitan, tofu, and tempeh.. Gardein and Field Roast are amazing too.

If you’re struggling with cravings, it could be your body is needing a nutrient associated with the craving. eg: if you’re craving red meat, it could be you just need to chow on some foods containing more iron - like chickpeas, lentils, spinach, tofu… 

Check out some films on how animals are treated like Earthlings.com. It was the movie that inspired me to go veg.

Vegucated and Forks over Knives are great movies too. I’ve compiled a list of other films here:
