After reading The China Study, I was all fired up and ready to try the plant-based diet experiment. But I was used to the traditional meat + starch + vegetable dinner. Looking forward to planning a month of no-meat, no-dairy, no-eggs meals felt like peering into a dark abyss. But something toward the end of the book was useful: a man who was skeptical about the plant-based diet got one recipe from his sister, a delicious vegan chili. So he made it and he liked it. What a great and EASY first step. So that's what I did. I checked out some recipe books from the library, searched "vegan" on allrecipes.com and just made ONE meal. And then one more, and so on. Some were NOT good and we ended up eating cereal (with soy milk, of course).
