yeah, as with everything, going cold turkey never makes a transition easier. most recommend replacing a few things at a time, stick with that until the new habit's formed, then move on to the next. it's a game of breaking old habits and forming new ones. too many changes at once and you risk burning out. you can even start with non-food items first if that's easier.


might be a hot take and i ain't shittin on you obviously, but: it's good to keep in mind the ultimate goal with it shouldn't be to find mirror replacements to your current faves. science isn't there yet, lab meat's still on the horizon. it should be about finding new faves that you can enjoy as much. if you can't be happy as a vegan because you can't find that perfect [vegan] steak, i might argue you're approaching the issue from the wrong angle.

I guess it depends upon your personality. I find doing stuff cold turkey is easier.

Personally, my technique was to find one day of meals I liked eating. I still eat pretty much the same thing everyday except when I eat out. I really never get tired of eating it, because it makes me feel good.

i became extremely sensitive to animal welfare basically overnight, so i stopped eating meat last summer. but being omni for 30+ years, it's been a slow transition for me. i'm only pescatarian now. i plan to cut out fish soon but to be honest full vegan is still pretty intimidating to me, even though i know i'll get there sooner than later. this thread is helpful.
I am going to buy more books about elderly dogs in the future. Thank you.

One of the best ways to stay on the wagon is to find friends who can help

I guess this thread is like the digital version of that but basically every population center has a vegan pot luck group, and generally vegan folks are pretty welcoming of new people

As an omnivore I've always been curious about the existence/appeal of fake meats, but this might take the cake.

yellow curry fried lentils +veggies just keeps on giving.

i've been eating oatmeal + peanutbutter for breakfast, then curried lentils for lunch, and i feel fantastic and productive.

edit:
although, my gut is still a little bewildered by the several cups of coffee i drink while working. i cut alcohol out of my life recently, a year after cutting out nictone, but reducing my coffee intake has been hard to want to do.

dude i was raised southern baptist by people who had literally never met a vegetarian in their life. it was a very slow process for me and i didn't know what I was doing, but i went veg at 27 and vegan at 30 and it's been great since. good luck bud, you can do it

Yeah, lots of high-end brands seem to be following Calvin Klein's lead. Gucci did the same but they still fuccin with exotic leather, though, so the fight ain't over.

i didn't have any meatballs. maybe i'll try it with trader joe's meatless meatballs (which are delicious) tomorrow

Anyone cooking anything as an entree for themselves or family for Christmas? My whole family, wife and kids are meat eaters so I'm thinking of making this for myself.
Obviously along with tons of vegetable sides.

I saw this a few days ago and got super psyched because I love to tailgate at baseball games and sausage is one of the tastiest meats imo, so this could be a game changer for me.

made this for dinner tonight and it's so good!

Butternut Squash & Coconut Curry
https://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-butternu-15729

Image

Butternut Squash & Coconut Curry
Serves 4-6
2 teaspoons coriander seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 medium (roughly 2 1/2 pound) butternut squash
3 tablespoons cooking oil, such as grapeseed or peanut oil
1 large shallot, peeled and sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1/2-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 jalapeño chile, chopped (seeds optional, for extra heat)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne (optional, for extra heat)
2 small, dried red chilies (optional, for extra heat)
1 Balinese Long Pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon tamarind paste
1 14-ounce can coconut milk
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
Cilantro, for garnish
Cooked rice, to serve

In a small, dry skillet over medium heat, toast the coriander, cumin, and fennel seeds. Once cool, grind the toasted spices in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle.

Meanwhile, peel and dice the squash into bite-sized pieces. You should have about 5-6 cups of squash.

Warm the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, and ginger. Cook, stirring, until the shallots are soft and translucent. Add the chile, turmeric, cayenne (if using), small dried red chiles (if using), Balinese Long Pepper (if using), and the ground toasted spices. Stir to release fragrance, cooking for 2-3 minutes.

Add the squash, tamarind paste, coconut milk, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer for about 45 minutes until squash is tender and just beginning to break down. The squash will thicken the curry as it cooks down. If you want an extra-thick and creamy curry, puree a cup or two of the squash with an immersion blender and mix it back into the curry.

Garnish each plate with sprigs of cilantro and serve with cooked rice.

I've done veg before and I think I am going to try to go full vegan. Any time I stop and think about it I feel like such a hypocrite for loving animals and still eating them. This thread is very inspiring and I'm going to dig through it for recipes.
