I did this recently as well, and not all transitioned yet. The most helpful thing for me was to shop only for the vegetarian stuff. I didn't ditch my food I had in the freezer, and so glad I had already eaten the meats I did have, like chicken, turkey sandwich slices. I didn't beat myself up for eating what was left. I couldn't afford to throw food away. And again, luckily, I had little of it left. I live alone, and never stock up more than a week or so

So now I don't buy anything that is meat, and once in awhile, I still get some milk in things but I don't beat myself on that either. I know I may transition on into vegan, but I am going easy, not getting overwhelmed or trying to be perfect. Big pitfall for me to try to be perfect so I don't go there
Write me anytime, I actually keep a journal on a site that I've plugged in my foods since 2009, so lately, I see quite a change in my meals. I also body-build, strength-training, not trying to be Miss Senior body builder, just want to feel good strength-wise, and health-wise
