Becoming vegan can seem like a big change to begin with. You may feel like there are just too many foods you need to give up - this is simply not true! You will soon discover all kinds of vegan treats and recipes for your usual favourites, and realise that a vegan version can be made.
Today, compared with say 10 years ago (or even 5 years ago!), there are much, much more vegan products readily available in your local supermarket. There are vegan versions of sausages and burgers, cheese, milk, ice cream, chocolate and yoghurt, just to name a few.
To help you change to a vegan lifestyle we have compiled a list of resources and guides. For any suggestions of content you would like to see then please contact us.
