Shifting to plant-based foods does not change your nutrition requirements. You will still need your carbs, fats, proteins and vitamins and minerals. Luckily for you, all of these exist in a much wider variety and much higher quality and quantity in plant products. Whether you are an experienced cook or not (although we recommend becoming one), there are plenty of ingredients and plenty of ideas and recipes to be found. Contrary to a popular myth about vegans, it is actually quite difficult to NOT get sufficient amounts of protein, so you should not consider protein as the driving factor in your cooking and eating. Open your arms (and mouth) to the plethora of vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds and spices, some of which you may have never experienced before.

Vegan Kit is a wonderful website to look at when you transition to veganism. They have an extensive food section broken down into easy to follow topics with direct links to recipes. You can find a ton of recipes and ideas on your own as well, but here are some of our favorite cookbooks and blogs in addition to the ones listed on Vegan Kit, in no particular order.
