plant based information

Helpful Resources

Here is a list of websites i used to learn about going meat free

Some people are capable of going cold-turkey and cutting meat from their diet entirely. Other people may benefit from gradually reducing their consumption until it feels more normal. To help myself with my one-month goal I decided that some education on the topic would be helpful. I started my research through Google, here is a list of informative articles I found online:

The internet has a wealth of information, the articles above are a good starting point but definitely expand your search if you need more information about changing to a plant based diet.

I watched the following documentaries to educate myself about how eating a plant-based diet influences economics, health, animal welfare and the environment. I will warn you, once you learn the reality of the damage we are causing by mass producing meat you may decide to start your own transition to veglife.

Vegucated

Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it’s all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet’s fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it.
