Making the transition to or maintaining your vegetarian or vegan lifestyle is often challenging for people. Some folks start and stop many times. Others stay vegetarian for a good length of time and then fall off. Some may worry they aren't eating the right things or attribute symptoms they are having to giving up animal products.
Does this sound familiar to you?
There are many forces out there that are trying to undermine your progress and confuse you. Advertisers and the food industry want to keep you addicted to their unhealthy food. Your meat-eating friends and family and the social gatherings you attend provide pressure and temptation to return to old unhealthy patterns of eating. New studies or health claims are reported or shared on social media that give conflicting or confusing information.
So often I see people who are looking for support to stay committed and help to make sense of the nutrition noise out there. That is what this site is all about.
