30 Blog Posts for Vegan Plant-Based Beginners

30 Blog Posts for Vegan/Plant-Based Beginners

I can’t believe it’s been three years this month since the Friendly Fig started! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this blog and community, and how much I enjoy sharing pieces of my life with you guys. So much love and compliments from people – people I know and complete strangers who have turned into friends. It’s very cool to see how the blog has evolved.

To celebrate, I wanted to share some of my favorite posts to date. This blog started as a way to share tips on eating plant-based/vegan/vegetarian. I wanted to show the world just how easy it is to enjoy food without ending an animal’s life. There have been so many posts written for beginners to get started – because at the end of the day, people truly fear what they do not know. I hope I do an okay job sharing my own personal tips and advice to lessen the fear of “what do I eat then?” and inspire for a healthier and kinder diet. Below are 30 blog posts for beginners that – I believe – embody all that you need to know for a successful and seamless transition.

If there is something on here you don’t see, please let me know. I am always looking for new angles to educate and would love to hear what you want to read! Something else you may find helpful or relate to is my post after being vegan for one year – 10 Things I Learned.

On another note, I hope you guys are still enjoying the content I am putting out three years later. I realize this blog has evolved a ton – mostly because I have evolved as a person! I try my best to share lifestyle tips and other cool things in-between recipes and plant-based posts. Also the sprinkling of vegan pregnancy posts – I know not everyone may find that helpful but I hope some of you do! I’ll definitely be including more posts on motherhood and the whole experience of it as my life progresses. I hope that is okay with you.

Thank you so much for being here and keeping on this journey with me. xx bianca
