Making changes to your current diet and lifestyle can seem quite daunting. Luckily enough, there are plenty of resources to help guide you through the changes. My one tip for when you are exploring these resources is to keep an open mind. Don't be put off by the changes you will need to make, but rather think about the benefits of this lifestyle and the improvements embracing it is going to have on your current lifestyle.
Also, enjoy the process! Learning something new should always be fun and exciting. Think about all the new food and flavour combinations you are going to try. I still find myself re-watching and re-reading lots of these resources because there's always something new to learn and be inspired by.
So, take the time now to have a read through my suggested resources. Many of the documentaries can be found on Netflix and the books are easy to purchase online or check out your local library. If you're still feeling a bit uncertain about taking the first step, ask someone to join you. Watching a documentary with someone else is always a great idea because it opens the opportunity for a discussion afterwards where you can discuss the main points or topics that struck you surprising. Or feel free to contact myself with any questions you might have, I’d be more than happy to help!
