If you're thinking about going vegan but you're unsure whether or not it is the right decision for you then don't worry, you have definitely come to the right place. Whether you're looking to do your part for the environment or you want to live a healthier lifestyle, going vegan is one of the best things you can do. Whilst it may seem overwhelming at first, there are lots of questions you can ask yourself to ensure the process is as easy as it can possibly be. From how fast you're going to be making the transition to the possible substitutes you can eat, the more you're thinking about it the easier it will be. With that in mind, here are 7 things to consider before going vegan:

- Will You Be Making A Slow Transition?

One of the first things you need to consider is whether or not you’re going to be making a slow transition, or whether you’re going to be going fully vegan right away. Making such a huge change to your lifestyle can be incredibly difficult and if you’re worried about making the change, you may want to do it bit by bit.

- What Foods Can You No Longer Eat?

Another thing you may need to consider is the foods you can no longer eat. Although you may think it’s just milk and dairy products, a lot of the foods you eat on a daily basis are probably not going to be vegan-friendly. If there’s anything you’re concerned about, you need to check as soon as you possibly can.

- What Substitutes Will You Be Using?

Once you know what foods you’re no longer able to eat, you need to think about what you’re going to substitute them with. With so many incredible options, you’ll soon see that your day-to-day meals will not be limited. For a guide to vegan substitutes, you can visit this site here.

- Where Will You Shop?

Although most supermarkets have vegan options, you may find that you’re unable to find everything you want in one store. Whilst your shopping will take a little longer, you need to ensure you’re going to places that are going to have plenty of options for you.

- Do You Need To Order Anything Offline?

If you’re struggling to find options in your local area, you may want to consider ordering things online. Whether that means you do a bulk order at the start of the month or you order things one by one each week, having a stock of vegan substitutes is a great idea. In some cases, you may find you’re only able to purchase some products online.

- Where Can You Go From Help And Inspiration?

Another important thing to consider is where you’re going to get your inspiration from when it comes to recipes. Whether you’re searching for homemade vegan ramen or you’re looking for a vegan devil's food cake, where are you going to find your recipes?

- What Vegan Influencers Do You Follow?

Finally, you need to ensure you’re following lots of vegan influencers and bloggers. Not only will they know about new products being launched but they’ll also have lots of great ideas when it comes to recipes and snacks.
