VegSeattle.com is the Pacific Northwest’s most comprehensive resource for anyone interested in reducing meat, dairy, and other animal products they consume.
The primary objective of VegSeattle is to promote the pleasures and benefits of plant-based eating. Whether it’s personal health or appearance, global environmental protection, or compassion toward animals, people choose to “go veg” for a wide variety of reasons.
The VegSeattle website offers many resources to help you make the transition to a vegetarian diet.
How to become a vegetarian
You can read about why and how to become vegetarian or vegan, including details about the different types of vegetarian diets, and other vegetarian FAQs.
You’ll find lots of helpful lists and useful information. Like where to what to eat, vegetarian recipes, where to shop in the Puget Sound region for ingredients, ideas for meat and dairy substitutes, and Seattle restaurants (and surrounding cities) that support a veg-friendly diet. We’re lucky in the Northwest that many grocers, farmers, and chefs are ready and willing support your vegetarian lifestyle.
No need to go it alone, either. There’s lots of support in the region, including vegetarian Happy Hours, singles groups, and meetup groups interested in vegan and vegetarian diets.
All of this information is designed to help you make subtle or dramatic changes to your consumption of meat and animal products, at any pace that’s comfortable for you:
Cold Turkey: When making the change to a vegetarian or vegan diet, some people go cold turkey and never look back.
Take it slow: Others like the slow and steady approach, making incremental changes while keeping sight of the final goal.
One forward, two back: Zig-zaggers take a few steps forward, another one back, one off to the side, and a couple more straight ahead.
Helpless: And then there are those who work themselves into a frenzy and feel paralyzed by the thought of changing old habits.
If you’re one of the above or somewhere in between, try the easy 3-step plan on VegSeattle to make the transition to becoming vegetarian fun and painless.
