When it comes to going plant based for the first time, I recommend looking up recipes or products that taste similar to what you may normally eat, but are the plant based counterpart. For instance, vegan cheddar cheese vs dairy cheddar, or seek out a DF milk alternative you would enjoy. My personal favorite is vanilla coconut milk or making a homemade almond milk. As for meat replacements, jack fruit is a great direct replacement for pulled pork, or there’s plenty of recipes like sunflower seed tuna that replaces traditional tuna fish.
