I've been thinking about becoming a vegan. What are some good resources I can use to help me begin my journey?
for what reason?
>>14490218shotgun to the head. completely vegan and gluten free
>>14490222Attention, obviously. Has OP already tried getting a tattoo, piercing, dying her hair, or claiming to bisexual?
>>14490218Don’t do it, it’s unhealthy. Just eat clean and cook for yourself. Why would you want to become vegan?
>>14490218Just remember that you can have up to 7 cheat days a month and you're still considered a vegan.
>>14490218I dont mean to be a bummer but I feel as tho becoming vegan is completely useless. You're not really reducing cruelty and it's not very healthy. Most vegans end up just eating nutter butters and oreos and chips and shit. Anyway if you're trying to feel better about yourself just buy locally and don't eat palm oil factory farm stuff.
>>14490218Why would you ask this here?Are you a troll or just really ignorant of board culture, and the internet in general?
>>14490218Try Challenge22 or check out the Forks Over Knives site - bunch of info & recipes. I know everyone’s just going to shit on you here but being vegan is pretty easy and can be pretty rewarding, good luck.
>>14490218get some inspiration through https://www.happycow.net/
>>14490218if you're trying to lose weight by going vegan, DON'Tif you suffer binge eating disorder or have a food addiction, address your mental issues that drive you to eat like a fucking pigif you're going vegan to save teh aminalsDON'T. animals are dumb fucks that deserve to die.
OP all these diets and shit are stupid, whether its veganism or carnivore or keto or whatever. Unless you're allergic, just eat balanced portions of what you want and exercise. You'll feel great and be in shape. Unless you're doing it for moral reasons, then go for it just don't become one of those preachy vegans.
>>14490218honest to god, ease into it with vegetarianism and try cuisines that are compatible, like indian food. look up vegan recipes from time to time as well or see if something you can't have anymore is replicable with substitutes. also don't be ashamed if your meals are 70% pasta and bread for the first couple months.
>>14490265>>14490272>>14490273>>14490276>>14490278>>14490429>>14492517>>14492599I went vegan because it triggers incels like these posters
>>14492701You should become a transexual next to relaly trigger them
>>14492771Nah I'm not gay
>>14490265actually it effects the suffering of an animal (aka a human) actually now that i think about it, veganism causes human suffering as it is malnourishment, thus veganism is NOT in fact vegan! WHOA
>>14492701>making lifestyle choices simply to spite others instead of being genuinebig yikes
There's plenty of things to learn on the internet, but it's not that complicated being a vegan anon, just eat balanced and take b12 supplement, there might be some other thing but it's essentially just that
I've been trying to eat more vegetable based meals too. I don't think I want to go vegan, because I love pizza and cheese and icecream and shit, but I'm alright with eating less meat. Good luck, OP.
>>14490218Fuck your "journey" you little faggot.
>>14490218Eat lots of apple seeds.
>>14494131i'm too high to tell if you mean this as a diss or you're a real antinatalist
>>14490218I suggest going vegetarian instead (eggs and cheese are the best also yogurt) and getting a pdf of The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook by Karen Brooks, used to be called The Forget-About-Meat Cookbook. It's kinda old but therre is a great section about whole protein and the recipes are really good.
>>14490218Buy a gun eat a bullet
Fuck antivegans have become more annoying than vegans
>>14492959that's thesis material son. metaethical refutation of veganism
I bought some of this, OP. I'm not vegan but I go through plant phases every few months.
>>14495763Welcome to ten years ago.
>>14492599I'll eat however I like you fucking sperg.
>ebin vegan bait thread #9467234234778756
>>14490218i've been mostly vegan for about 10 years although i'll occasionally eat dairy and fish if it's in the house already the secret is learning how to cook and substituting things. eating a good vegan dish is all substituion, and researching native cuisines of countries and finding incidentally vegan dishes i most often eat japanese food. for example i'll make vegetable tempura, and a miso ramen with kombu dash i stock, fried tofu, sesame oil for heartiness, beansprouts, corn, laver also find the right meat substitutes. i'll make beyond meat burgers with daiya cheddar slices, tomato onion lettuce ketchup salt pepper and pickles the only things you just can't really replicate are chicken wings and steak and shit like that, although in some brooklyn pizza place i did have a disturbingly realistic chicken drumstick with a fake bone and all, it was definitely some chinese factory shit but was amazing in terms of taste and texture potatoes are your friend msg is your friend
>>14490429>. You're not really reducing crueltyhow not what if enough people did it
>>14490218also as an aside OP, don't think about it like you're 'becoming' vegan. just decide what you're not going to eat anymore and do that. when you make it this big thing like you're converting religions, it makes it feel a lot more forced and temporary and uncomfortable just eat as you please. and don't listen to these faggot pseudo-intellectual anti-vegan neckbeards, not only is vegan the future but it's progressive and realistic. it's the natural course that human beings should take as empathetic and intelligent animals there's no reason to eat meat. it's not about eating a BaLaNced diet, that doesn't fucking matter. you're not healthier because you picked lean organic free range chicken or because of MUH HUNTING you can be perfectly content and nourished on a vegan diet it just takes more care and time than to be a mcdonald's eating fucking loser it's not healthIER, but it's smarter and reduces cruelty and CAN be healthier
>>14497340Go fuck yourself you retard. Where do you live you soyshit? I`ll break your DYEL frail body and rear naked choke you until you become a vegetable. Poor fuck.
>>14497362Smells of r*ddit so fucking much. Go fuck yourself and don`t come back
>>14497362>you're not healthier because you picked lean organic free range chicken or because of MUH HUNTING Yeah we are, silly
>>14490273that is a nice Sachertorte, shame you had to pair it with a dumb run of the mill opinion>>14490465there's actually a decent amount of vegans on CK>>14492599moral reasons are the only proper reasons for becoming a vegan, be it because of animal suffering or climate change>>14492701based>>14493552yeah, I could never imagine giving up cheese. some types of meat maybe, but cheese? fuck no
>>14497741>moral reasons are the only proper reasons for becoming a vegan, be it because of animal suffering or climate changeEating like a vegan makes it easy for me to stay HCLF. That's why I do it.
>>14498056>HCLFwhy the fuck would you want that
>>14490218>I've been thinking about becoming a literal faggotKill yourself
>>14498077Because it feels good and makes it easy to stay at a healthy weight. It's not like my food has other people to disappoint anyhow.
>>14498140be honest, you're doing it because you're transitioning and want to keep your t-levels low.
>>14498153I show signs of low estrogen if anything.
>>14490218Plenty and Plenty More by Yottam Ottolenghi. Since he himself is actually NOT a vegan or vegetarian, and thus knows how to cook, his recipes are a lot better than when you get recipes from an actual vegan, who hasn't had proper food in some time.Same goes for Kenji, so a lot of the vegan recipes on Serious Eats are pretty decent.Generally focus more on dishes/cuisines that are incidentally already vegan, instead of "veganifying" meat dishes. Ratatouille and Dal Bhat are among my favourite foods, even though they are vegan.
>>14497741>moral reasons are the only proper reasons for becoming a vegan, be it because of animal suffering or climate changeI get where you're coming from, but if you do more unbiased research into our recent climate crisis it more has to do with industrialization than with animal consumption. I would say that mining actually is probably whats causing global warming, since the these oils that formed from years of the accumulation of dead animals, their feces, and plants over millions of years did change our atmosphere over time. I mean, for a long time in Earths early life, the air was toxic. Not to mention the mining for these materials causes massive sinkholes and destruction to eco systems (this includes animal suffering, like oil spills killing massive amounts of sea life, and certain underwater mining techniques causing animals to become confused and sometimes end up killing themselves in the process)ALL industrial ag is problematic for animal welfare and the environment. I would say rather than turning to veganisim as a solution you should look into self sufficiency. If you have land you should utilize it. A front lawn or backyard can grow a good number of crops and you can keep a couple chickens to eat weeds, garden pests, and kitchen scraps. If you have more space you can keep larger animals.
fuck vegetables and fuck trannies
>>14498295>fuck tranniesNah, that would be gay.
>>14490218Find local vegan restaurants and try em?
going vegan is a retarded idea, the fact that you stop eating meat would not affect on anything the industry. Having fast food places like macdonalds on every corner feeding the horde of apes and retarded mongrel american fatties is probably makes way more problems than a single individual consumption. You can stop eating meat every day if that is what are you doing , and just do it on the weekends.
>>14491466I wasn't expecting a single genuine answer in here, thank you so much bro
>>14498645nice samefag, faggot
>>14498208>Ottolenghi is an Israeli-English chefOkay, not sure if that means his food is going to be terrible because of his national origin or amazing because he's escaping his national foods
>>14497362Actually good post
>>14494180UNSPECIFIED RECREATIONAL DRUG
>>14498295YES YES YESTHIS SHIT RIGHT FUCKING HERETHIS GUY IS BASEDEVERYONE ELSE IN THIS THREAD IS HUGE FAGGOT
>>14498871*pat pat* Did you forget your medicine this morning? Your sperging a little too hard over something that doesn't need that many caps locked words. Do you want some breakfast? Maybe some food will help with the autistic stimming.
>>14498892I DON'T CAPS LOCK I HOLD DOWN SHIFT LIKE A NORMAL PERSON
>>14498903There there....shhh.....here's some rocks to stack into a tower. Try that.
>>14497362>the future is veganMaybe in cities where human livestock to the mega rich have no access to land and produce 0% of their own food/raw materialBut everywhere else in the world is going to use whatever natural resources they can to survive.I do like to hope that in the future factory "farming" will become a thing of the past, but as long as there are consumer urban faggots there will always be a demand for commodification of living beings.It's a shame too. A well raised animal is so dramatically different in not only satiety but in taste it's ridiculous. I had to slaughter a severely genetically deformed duck the other day, and even though he was maybe 1/4 the size of your typical broiler hen and severely fucked up, he has lasted me 2 days of eating him and literally no other meat (and keep in mind I have also shared him with others as well). And I am someone who can eat an entire rotisserie chicken and still be hungry. Just giving him access to pasture, sunlight, and forage, allowing him to roam (when he still could walk) and supplement his fermented organic feed with bugs and grasses as well as excess from my garden made him dramatically different from a CAFO chicken who only lives to get as big as possible as quickly as possible.Keep in mind this duck was basically euthanized as he was in so much pain and his life was so awful it would have been cruel to keep him alive any longer. The other ducks are in wonderful health and about 2 times larger than he was, he was just handed a bad genetic card. This even happens to humans.I prioritize having as much control over what I put in my body as humanly possible. I couldn't do that on a vegan diet. Having plants, fungi, soil, and animals that are raised by my personal code of ethics and the blood involved in stewardship on my hands is much more rewarding and meaningful than buying something shrink wrapped in mystery from a supermarket.
