eating healthy vegetarian foodMany people are interested in pursuing a vegetarian or vegan diet but they fear that they cannot commit to new eating habits on long-term basis. However, once people adopt vegetarian or vegan diet for a month it helps people to gain the knowledge needed to sustain this way of life.

Below are several steps that can be taken to start a thirty day challenge;

A) STEP 1 - Identify Your Purpose

Before beginning any vegetarian challenge, individuals must clarify their intention in order to know what they are aiming for when embracing new eating habits.

B) STEP 2 - Identify a Suitable Vegetarian Type

To be successful with a vegetarian experiment or challenge, individuals should identify the type of vegetarianism that is most suitable for them. Flexibility is the best thing about the vegetarian lifestyle as there are different types of vegetarians. A person can select a dietary program that is best for their health and nutritional needs for the thirty day period.

C) STEP 3 - Choose A Great Source For Recipes

In order to complete a vegetarian or vegan trial, a person must be willing to overcome their fear of a meat free diet. There are numerous delicious recipes that can be obtained through cookbooks , cooking shows, recipe apps and the Internet. Once individuals find a good source for vegetarian recipes they are better able to maintain healthy eating habits. Learning how to prepare healthy meals from organic foods can help people develop the willpower to maintain their 30-day vegetarian or vegan pledge.

D) STEP 4 - Choose Your Accountable Buddy

Having an accountable buddy (someone who is supportive) is good for a person who wants to take a 30 day challenge. This allows a person to share their lifestyle change triumphs and setbacks with a friend that cares and will hold them responsible to sustain their new eating habits. An accountable buddy can also help shop for and prepare healthy foods and provide support when needed.

E) STEP 5 – Document Your Experience

Taking the time to document new eating habits as well as the experience is important to understand how you feel about leading a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. By writing in a journal or making a video log, a person can see their personal progress on a vegetarian diet and see the pros and cons.

Sustaining a thirty day challenge or experiment is possible with the steps mentioned above. If you decide that being a vegetarian or vegan is what you want you should see your doctor or nutritionist for guidance.

    Jut make sure that all the nutrients your body needs will be able to sustain fairly. The protein requirement especially, cause that's what we usually are getting from lean and red meats.
