New York Times Gives Readers Tips on How to Go Vegan

spicy-sauteed-kale.jpgThe New York Times offered up some amazing tips for going vegan this week. In a piece simply called “How to Go Vegan,” writer Tara Parker-Pope shares her insights on making the transition to a plant-based diet.

Similarly to the approach taken by author Kathy Freston, Parker-Pope suggests making the transition gradually, slowly introducing new foods to your regular regimen.

Featuring Food Network’s Cupcake Wars winner Chloe Coscarelli, Parker-Pope demystifies eggless baking and reveals new ways to create creamy dishes, such as a delicious pizza topped with caramelized onions and butternut squash. She also highlights the wonders of nutritional yeast–a favorite ingredient among many vegans.

Parker-Pope encourages readers to share their tips on going vegan in the comments section of the piece or by tweeting with the hashtag “#vegantips.”

Whether it’s for personal health, the health of the planet, or to take a compassionate stance for animals, more people each year are making the switch to a delicious vegan diet.
