first of all: YOU DID IT!!! YOU ARE VEGAN!!!!!!
you should be the happiest person in the world about it - i know my heart starts dancing and singing every time i heard somebody made the transition and decides to stick with it!!!
as for food: make sure to get a LOT of different things!
veggies: there are way too many to count. try to get something different every day (even the ones you like). try to pick ones that arent loaded with chemistry.
fruit: fruit rocks! just pay more attention to veggies, since most fruit today is produced to be sweet not nutritional! grrrr
nuts: walnuts, chestnuts, indian nuts, brasil nuts, chickpeas, peanuts... experiment to find the ones your tummy is ok with
legumes: ohhhh so perrrdy!
(gotta love all of them)
"junkfood": if all else fails, keep fridge loaded with vegan "junkfood". at least things like that exist in america. hungry for milk go for soymilk (cinnamon soymilk mmmm). hungry for cheese head for tofu. hungry for icecream HEAD FOR THE BLENDER!
supplements: get Veg1 from vegansociety. or anything else you like from anywhere else (like always veganessentials.com is stock and loaded with every supplement you could ever imagine). watch out for b12, iodine, selenium, D (if you dont get out in the sunshine too much), iron, omega3... that's about it... shouldnt worry too much though. just eat a lot and keep
changing what you eat... never stick to same old-same old.
if your family doesnt support you, educate them about WHY VEGAN.
if your friends show no support, educate first, if they still bring you down get rid of them. plain and simple. they're not friends anyway.
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.
