Are you interested in trying a vegan diet, but not sure how to start? We’ve got you covered.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is launching a 21-day Vegan Kickstart on September 5, and they want you to participate! The kickstart is a three-week program designed to introduce participants to the joys of a vegan diet. Whether your goal is to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, increase energy or reduce animal suffering, this program aims to show you how.

The free plan will offer menu suggestions, nutrition webcasts, a vegan restaurant guide and daily tips from vegan celebs such as Alicia Silverstone, Rory Freedman, John Salley and Kris Carr. The plan promises to “feel great, taste delicious and offer all sorts of medical benefits.”

Everyone who signs up will receive daily messages starting September 5. Expect delicious recipes such as Speedy Black Bean Burritos, as well as tips on how many recipes to make each week, and how to adjust the meals according to your family’s size. The nutrition tips will spell out exactly what foods are and aren’t allowed on a vegan diet and the plan also recommends cookbooks and other resources. For the vegan on the go, there’s even a free iPhone app. Other bonuses include a healthy food quiz and info on the Flavors of India.

And if you’re already livin’ the veg lifestyle, no sweat. You can still sign up. Who knows, you might learn something new! Or at least pick up a couple of new recipes to add to your repertoire.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
