I would recommend watching "30 Reasons to Go Vegetarian." It worked for me.

Maybe stock up on quick and easy things to eat so it wont be a problem? It probably wouldn't be the healthiest foods in the world, but if it matters to you, you can make it work.

Well maybe start with certain days , 2/3 per week that you will definitely be vegetarian and slowly work up from there.

def. get some quick and simply meals. also, you can make things like soups, stew, chili, ect that freeze well one day and freeze portions for when you dont have a lot of time to cook.

I don't like to suggest unhealthy things, but Oriental Top Ramen is vegetarian. I like to make it and add frozen veggies. You can even drop an egg in during the last minute of cooking and mix it with a fork for egg drop soup. 5 minutes, tops



Frozen meals are AWESOME too. Always keep things that you can heat and eat quick. I like Butternut Squash ravioli, fettucini alfredo, and cheese ravioli all by Lean Cuisine. Also, I buy black bean and corn enchiladas from Trader Joe's ($1.99 for 2). Also frozen pizzas (like the french bread kind) and Amy's products (a little pricey, but good quality).

Crock pot! Make a full crock pot full of chili or stew, like you're cooking for a whole family. One person can reheat their crock-pot meals for several days, and there's something so rewarding about knowing that there's something homemade and delicious just 2 microwave minutes away. You might spend 45 minutes to an hour prepping, but once it's cooked you won't have to do anything else for a long time.

Stock up on snacks, and you can cook food (soup!) on the weekends that'll last you the entire week.

Is it just me or is it a bit weird to see people doing these video blogs in their bathrooms? Particularly when they're talking about food ... I don't know, it just struck me as a bit strange.





Edited to add:



If you can make soups, chili or bean dishes in a crock pot they can be frozen in individual portion sizes quite well. If you have access to a freezer and a microwave - set aside one day a week to cook up some beans, some chili and a health soup then freeze it in smaller containers. Quick and easy meals for when you're really in a rush. I've also found that keeping a container of cooked pasta in the refrigerator works - top it with some vinaigrette dressing and cold veggies for a pasta salad or heat it up with some sauce ... quick meal ready when you are.
