Now you take the foods you already like and veganize them in stages. These are the steps I recommend, but take what works for you and leave the rest.
1) Make a list of your favorite meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
2) For each and every one, look at it and decide what you'd need to do to veganize it. If you can't figure it out, ask here. At first, don't worry about anything but veganizing. Later, you can add whole grains, cut fat, etc.
3) Do the ones that seem easiest first. Some examples:
Spaghetti with vegan marinara sauce instead of meat sauce
Bean burritos with salsa and avocado, but no meat or cheese
Hot cereal with margarine and raw sugar instead of butter and honey
I volunteer to help you work on veganizing your list. We can either do it here, or you can email me at email@example.com.
Don't let anyone make you feel bad for starting where you are. Cooking takes a while to learn; best to make it easy on yourself at first.
