Consuming meat and other animal products has been linked to a higher risk for a number of different cancers, so you might consider cutting meat and dairy out of your diet. While going vegan may be a big transition, it can have significant benefits for your health—especially if you are facing a cancer diagnosis.
Try new foods
Instead of thinking of a vegan lifestyle as restrictive, you might think of vegan eating as an opportunity to explore foods you have never tried before. At local farmers markets, you can find exotic produce along with locally sourced fruits and vegetables that may have you rethinking your attitude towards vegetarian eating. As you cut out milk, you might taste alternatives such as hemp milk, soy milk, or sweeter nut milks.
Plan meals ahead of time
When you are prepared with a well-stocked kitchen to make vegan dinners, lunches, and snacks, you will be less likely to reach for convenience foods that are not made with vegan ingredients. You might also plan out your daily meals for a few weeks as you adjust to a new way of eating.
Learn your local vegan-friendly spots
You will probably cook at home more often following a vegan diet, but it is nice to have a list of restaurants offering tasty vegan fare. A growing number of chain restaurants are providing vegan options, but the best vegan foods are typically found at local eateries that specialize in the art of vegan and vegetarian cooking.
