New vegan and college student

Hey! I'm a freshman in college from northern California. I'm just starting the transition into veganism and would love any advice anyone has to offer! Thanks in advance!

Hi Meaghan,

Welcome aboard!

Mercy For Animals has published a free, nicely-written Vegetarian (vegan) Starter Guide. The nutrition part of the guide starts on page 7:


“Under the twinkling trees was a table covered with Guatemalan fabric, roses in juice jars, wax rose candles from Tijuana and plates of food — Weetzie's Vegetable Love-Rice, My Secret Agent Lover Man's guacamole, Dirk's homemade pizza, Duck's fig and berry salad and Surfer Surprise Protein Punch, Brandy-Lynn's pink macaroni, Coyote's cornmeal cakes, Ping's mushu plum crepes and Valentine's Jamaican plantain pie."

from Witch Baby, Francesca Lia Block, 1991

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

Awesome! I became vegan when I started college as well and I also go to a university up in northern cali :-) I would always buy a lot of bananas, apples, beans, rice and pasta. They're all pretty cheap and keep you full.

Do you cook for yourself or do you have a meal plan?
