Going into the office can provide a number of temptations. Some days your boss might bring in donuts or other sugary snacks, or you might even get stuck trying to figure out how not to seem "weird" at a pizza party. We know it's all meant to be good-natured and fun, but it can be a real challenge for those trying to get their health under control.

The Top 5 Easiest Foods to Ease Into a Vegan Diet

Simplicity is the key to your success when it comes to adhering to a vegan diet plan. I admit, it can be difficult to sit at a table with family and friends as a lone vegan while you are surrounded by others seemingly enjoying dishes considered "off limits," but that you remember the sweet tastes and aromas from your past life of partaking in unhealthy meats and artificially processed foods. Remember: the pleasure these foods may bring will not be long lasting, as research is beginning to show the negative impact the modern, Western diet is having on human beings today. From significant weight gain to mental disorders, the food we eat impacts our brains and bodies at their very core. 

I can also admit that switching over to only eating vegan foods is not always the easiest. I made the change because it was vital to my survival. I was starting to see and feel the negative effects of overeating and other poor lifestyle choices. Though during the early stages of my plant based diet I had doubt in my self and my ability to "stay the course," I have kept with it for quite some time now, and am reaping the benefits in my health.
