I answered this question several months ago but wanted to put in with a podcast episode because it's so important.
How in the heck do you plan meals without meat being the center of the meal?

Some people think you can only get protein from chicken, beef, fish, eggs, etc. but this isn't the case at all. There are sooo many plant-based options that can easily replace the meat on your plate.
The best way to approach vegan life when you're getting started is to think about what you're already eating and how you can make a vegan version of that meal.
In this episode, I used vegan fried chicken, taco salad and chili as examples of how this would look.
Try not to overthink your meal planning, be gentle with yourself and I promise it will get easier once you're consistent.
