3 tips on how to handle a ‘vegan crisis’
Revisit the moment when you chose to exclude animal products in the first place
This exercise is beautifully simple yet profoundly impactful. Take a moment to recollect why you started this journey to eliminate animal products from your diet. There are many more reasons and benefits of becoming vegan. Learn more about the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, and use this information to encourage and motivate you to continue on your journey.
Eat something that reminds you of what you miss the most
Sticking to your commitment doesn't mean you can't treat yourself. By recreating familiar flavours, textures, and scents of meat-based dishes, you'll find it easier to stay on the plant-based path.
This applies to sweet treats too! Are you craving for a jar of chocolate spread? Check out our highly addictive and mouth-watering Rawnella Spread.
