10 THINGS every vegan needs to know

Newly vegan and feeling a bit daunted? Clea Grady talks you through everything you need to know to make the transition as smooth as possible

10 top tips


When you first go vegan, this can feel like a daunting question. I think this is because it’s a pretty emotional decision for most people, and being asked to justify it can feel like an attack when it’s really just an enquiry. If you do feel a little wobbly, then my suggestion would be to move it away from the more emotive animal-based reasoning and give a fact-based answer around the environment. This tactic is also good for preventing ‘defence mode’ in the other person and can lead to a bigger conversation that includes animals. After nearly five years of being asked to justify my choices, my go-to response is this: “I learnt some stuffthat it’s impossible to unlearn and going vegan was the obvious next step.” It’s then up to the other person to take the conversation further and I feel like I’ve been honest without making anyone feel uncomfortable.
