Check out <a href="http://www.veganmania.com" target="_blank">www.veganmania.com</a>. It helped me not only make the vegetarian/vegan transition easier but fun, enjoyable and exciting.

Hi there, welcome to the veggie world!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
There are loads of websites with recipes and stuff, but also when I first started being veggie I just substituted the meat in my recipes for Quorn or vegemince. For example, I still used the same sauce for my bolognaise, but just used vegemince instead of minced beef, or I used Quorn pieces in my stir fries.<br><br><br><br>
Not very original, but it's a great place to start!<br><br><br><br>
Check out the veggie options in your local supermarket...<br><br><br><br>
Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi, welcome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
You can make tacos, but instead of meat, use canned refried beans. Or spaghetti with sauce from a jar. Or big giant salads.<br><br><br><br>
You can make a stir fry - just get some broccoli and carrots and onions or whatever veggies you like, and cook them in a pan till they're done, then serve over brown rice, with soy sauce on the side.<br><br><br><br>
Your local library probably has vegetarian cookbooks, around Dewey decimal number 641. A beginner's book that I found very helpful is Being Vegetarian for Dummies.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck, and enjoy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Do you cook? What kinds of foods do you eat right now? Are there certain kinds of ethnic foods that you like or are you more of a plain-jane?

Just be careful, though, as some refried beans contain lard...which is a fancy way of saying animal fat.

Hey, I am new into this too, and maybe I could offer some good tips. First off, if you have any favorite dishes that involved meat, there might not be a reason to throw them out. Consider substituting the meat for Morningstar's Meat Substitutes. I made a wonderful vegan "bacon cheeseburger" pizza the other day that was really, really good, made with the Morningstar meat crumbles and Morningstar bacon strips and vegan cheese.<br><br><br><br>
I was cleaning house the other day and I started to throw out some of my old recipes but realized that the majority of them could easily be converted to a vegetarian diet with just a few modifications. That way you can ease into a vegetarian diet much more gradually.
