Well done on making the first step...this might be a big process for you! Intention is everything.
There will be a few ways you can go with this, and I have no idea of your lifestyle just now, but I've tried to do something similar over the last
few years. The first thing I did, besides being vegan, (which I'm not pushing on you btw!) was to stop eating processed foods of any kind. If you
can, and you have the skills...it's really not hard...cook as much of your food yourself as you can. I sometimes think this a dying art, and
commercially produced fod is full of far too much in the way of sugars, salts, fats, plastics from the containers, preservatives....it's a long list.
And you food will taste so much better too, I guarantee it. As for buying food, if you are in the UK, I would recommend a farmer's market, somewhere
you can get your veggies as locally as possible, or a health food co-operative, or decent health food store...little independent places tend to have
the most knowledge and the best stock, especially if they have been around for a while. I hope this helps.
There is a lot more I could drone on about, but I won't till you ask....which you are welcome to.
What's your inspiration for making changes, if you don't mind me asking?
