I've come up with a few important things you should keep in mind while you transition.

You need the vitamin B12, B12 is mostly found in meats and to my knowledge you cannot find a sustainable version of B12 in a plant. So the only way you can obtain the vitamin is by eating or drinking (vegan) fortified foods or by taking supplements. These products contain B12 grown by bacteria in a lab.

Here's a few of products that contain B12.
A deficiency in vitamin B12 can cause nerve damage, heart disease or pregnancy problems. Read more here at the Vegan Society.

Remember as you are cutting out meat and dairy your calorie intake is going to drop as there is far less fat in most plant based foods so remember to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds and products thereof. If you're stuck for recipes check our recipes section or visit the recipes at the Vegan Society.
