Going on a vegan diet can sound extremely intimiating at first, especially if you're devoted to things like pizza and nachos. Some of your go-to meals can even be filled with dairy products or eggs without you realizing it. But that doesn't mean cutting out animal products has to be a hardship—and in fact, it can be pretty easy and delicious.
By eating more plant-based meals, you'll do a lot to help the environment, cut down on factory farming, and make yourself, in general, feel pretty good. Eating vegan doesn't mean filling your freezer with veggie burgers and soy hot dogs—it's about getting more of the whole fruits and vegetables that your body craves. These nine meals are completely vegan, and it doesn't take a five-star chef (or a trip to a pricey health food store) to make them. Give them a try and soon enough you'll realize it's pretty easy being green.
