Transitioning/plant based raw diet.

Hello, I am interested in transitioning to a plant based diet, raw and vegan options are welcome. I would be transitioning from a mostly carb, SUGAR, cheese, eggs and things like that, I do consume meat. I love absolutely love juices. But for the most part I've noticed I eat pretty poorly, I choose the easiest and most readily available option. I'm nineteen and ive never really eaten healthy, i enjoy fruits and ocassionaly veggies but need to get more used to enjoying them. I would really like to transition to a plant based diet for my health. I would like advice on transitioning as easily as possible in an enjoyable way. What are your staples you always have in your home? What are some easy meals you always make? What appliances are must haves? Do you shop in the farmers market, grocery store, produce stand? Where can you find the best prices? I've researched a small bit on this diet, but I would really like to get more insight on it. Thank you so much
Mel

Finding the reasons to remain inspired can be the challenge to continually changing and sticking to a better diet. Whatever that is - it can be always changing and in need of attention... It can be fun and purposeful - meaningful. It can actually be realized as a main direction for life enhancement - health leads to a long age expectancy etc. It makes more sense since it is more ecologically harmonious also etc.

Caring about our health is caring about our very state of being and future which is a very good thing to be seriously concerned about making the most of.

Hi and welcome panndatoco. Do you cook? It is easy to be vegetarian if you learn to cook. Veg cooking is easy. Chop veggies, cook grain, then season or sauce. Fruit for dessert, all done. There are great cooking blogs and videos.

Gain some knife skills; you will have your meals prepped in just a couple minutes. And people are impressed, lol!

Edited to add--kitchen appliances are fun but not necessary. I have cooked vegan for my family for over a decade, and I have a couple of sharp knives, cutting boards (big and small), a cast iron fry pan, and several sizes of pots and pans. I also have a $20 stick blender that is my blender/food processor/smoothie maker. Well, plus a refrigerator, oven, toaster, stovetop, and dishwasher
