Hi Amanda,

You didn't mention if you are already a vegetarian and trying to make the switch to vegan, but if you aren't I would suggest you might start there by eliminating flesh foods(beef, pork, chicken, fish)first. Also, have you spoken to your parents about this? Are you dependent on your parents to prepare meals for you? If so, and if your parents are not vegetarian, you might encounter some resistance from them. I would suggest you sit down to talk with them in a calm manner to explain what you would like to do and why. Arm yourself with good information- books. Becomig Vegan by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina is a great book to get started with. It would help if your parents read it as well (if they prepare your meals). Be gentle with your parents, but be firm and calm. (I apologize if you already have their support and agreement!) Don't try to be perfect with this yet. Just do the best you can and keep open the lines of communication. There is a lot of good information of Vegsource, explore it at length! Good luck, Sara
