You may say that meat tastes so good, what should you eat instead? You may be surprised to learn that a vegetal diet is incredibly diverse, tasty and affordable...
In spite of the immense advantages of a purely vegetal diet for nature, climate, animals and our health the commonest counter-argument of many is their fear of abstention. It is part of man's nature to fear the unknown or at least to be suspicious of it.
Yet, there is absolutely no reason for that. After all, each of us covers 60-70% of his daily requirement of calories with vegan products anyway. Or, have you ever eaten Spaghetti Bolognese without spaghetti or let's say, a cheese sandwich without bread?
It is really not so difficult to replace the remaining 30-40%. You only have to know how to do it, which, at the beginning admittedly, takes some time to get familiarized with. But this is exactly what could kindle the pleasure of cooking and eating anew. You will get to know man delicious new things and your taste, too, will change after a certain time, which will make you cherish vegetal foods. And – a vegan diet does in no way mean abstention, but a real joy of eating!
And luckily, the vegan market is booming and new products appear on it every day. And the higher the demand, the bigger the variety of products. There exists a big number of vegan supermarkets, takeaways and restaurants already. Here is a list of some known restaurants: https://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/
Discounters, too, have jumped at it, and the range of products is growing steadily: soy and other vegetal milk, meat and sausage surrogates, spreads, tofu and so on.

Another widespread prejudice is to believe that a vegan diet is more expensive. This is primarily due to the fact that many vegans buy their food in organic shops. Some foods, like nut butter do mean a considerable expense but they can be made by yourself more cheaply and very easily. And in most cases you can do without such things. Surrogates of dairy products, too, are twice or three times as expensive still. By and large, as many vegetable products are far cheaper than animal products, the price difference is hardly noticeable.
