Tips to Get Your Family on Board With A Plant-Based Diet


If you've recently switched to a plant-based diet, it can be a bit frustrating when the rest of your family doesn't suddenly see the world the same way you do. If you have kids that are used to the Standard American Diet, making this change can feel nearly impossible without listening to constant moaning and groaning.

When "I make the food, so I make the rules" doesn't quite cut it, it can feel like there's nowhere to turn. However, there are ways to make this lifestyle change feel fun, normal and less like a chore. It can take a bit of dedication, but it's important not to give up so you can pass these health benefits and values onto your family.

Embrace the "Accidentally Vegan"

Many new to plant-based eating try to convert the masses by replicating old fan favorites. While the logic is there, vegan chicken nuggets, cheese and burgers aren't the conversion tools you might think they are for those who are set in their ways. Instead, bringing in new foods that are delicious and plant-based will go further.

Imitation often won't measure up, especially to those looking for flaws. Innovation is key. Try experimenting with cuisines and recipes that are easy to make plant-based, or old favorites that are accidentally vegan already. Asian-inspired dishes are often a hit, as are many Indian recipes and pasta dishes. You might find it's much easier to introduce something new and exciting than to replace someone's coveted hot dogs. 

Find That Plant-Powered Protein

As a plant-based individual, you're probably ready to scream at the next person who asks you where you get your protein. You know by now that plant-based diets offer a variety of sources to get your daily dose, and what's even better is they can be great for converting those non-followers in your house.
