It can be safely assumed that the majority of people who have made the transition to a vegan lifestyle didn't do so because they disliked the taste of animal products, more often than not, they made the change because they believed that the benefits very much outweighed the taste. A question that you often get asked as a vegan is if you miss the things you no longer consume in particular, meat.
When people first make the transition to a vegan lifestyle, the answer may well be yes. Giving up something that you have been so used to having daily can be quite difficult and it does take time to adjust. However, we think it is safe to say that once you have settled into making kinder choices and discovered all of the fantastic meat alternative products, your answer will change to a confident no - I do not miss meat, I do not need it and neither do you!
Everyday, we are reading about new fantastic meat alternatives (we just got our hands on FacePlant Foods Vegan Square Sausage, talk about progress!) and many major restaurants chains are now offering vegan options or a full blow vegan menu. Changing to a vegan diet in 2018 could not be easier, especially when you have TheVeganKind Online Supermarket to give you a hand!
If you know somebody that needs convincing, then why not ask them to try some of the great meat alternative products we have in stock? Want some help deciding? Here are some of our absolute faves!
