Brown Vegan

In this solo episode, I share eight tips that helped me get my family to eat more vegan meals in the early days.

Tips mentioned in this episode:

  • Make sure school lunches are familiar, delicious, and appealing for your kids.

  • Have a chat about your plans (you don’t have to use the word “vegan")

  • Let majority rule when it comes to meal planning and whether or not a recipe/meal is good.

  • Test out new recipes on the days you have leftovers.

  • Ask your significant other to give you feedback on meals when the kids aren’t around.

  • Incorporate smoothies and fresh juice

  • Use meat alternatives when necessary

  • Get your family involved in grocery shopping and cooking
