Becoming a Vegetarian

Posted on | July 18, 2012 | Comments Off on Becoming a Vegetarian

Many people are able to immediately become a vegetarian.  But for others, the transition can be harder and take longer.  It doesn’t matter how it is done; one should do what works best for them.  Ultimately though, once you have decided a purely (or even partially) vegetarian life is the best way forward, you will probably benefit from some support and help which is offered herewith.

We offer recipes, forums for discussion, nutritional information and advice and how to deal with those “meat” cravings, amongst other things.  As well, we suggest ways of encouraging children to make the change.  And our forums are available for discussions on how the change is going and what can be done to make it smoother.

However you make the change, be sure to keep up on Vitamin B12, Calcium, Iron and Protein that often – at first, through misinformation – can be lacking in a vegetarian diet.
