So I need some advice. 

I want to go vegetarian and I was wondering if anyone had some tips for me.

I'm a huge meat eater and am starting the transition by cutting off red meat for a month, then cutting off white meat and eating fish. (I live in Vegas, I will hardly end up eating fish unless we eat out and I know it's fresh)

I still want to eat home made jerky and fish on occasion, but not often enough to be part of my diet.

 If you could post:

~Tips for transitioning a diet

~Cook books to help

~Recipe blogs and cooking blogs

~Places for low cost foods

~Where to get organic foods

I am open to Vegan options, though I am not going full Vegan

Hi! I'm vegan and the transition was a little difficult but the more you avoid meat, the less your body craves it. You can transition by using vegan/veggie patties, vegan cheese, tofu, seitan, etc. The processed vegan foods aren't that great for you either but it helps while you are transitioning. 

 

The cookbook I absolutely recommend is Veganomicon. It has everything from recipes to what you should keep in your pantry and how to cook certain foods. I follow TONS of vegan/veggie blogs. Here's a few of my fave:

Organic foods can be purchased at your local grocery store, farmer's market, or www.vitacost.com (you can find EVERYTHING there!) I hope I helped a little :)

You can also start off one meal at a time. Like not having any meat in your breakfast for a week. Then meatless lunches and meatless breakfasts for a week. Then meatless dinners, lunches, and breakfasts.

Definitely have to takes steps down. Its better for your body to transition that way too and not as hard for the cravings. <3 I was vegetarian for the better part of 10 years but due to medical issues have to maintain a very specific diet now.
