Hey! I know this can be really stressful at first and I want you to remember that you are trying. Rome was not built in a day(I'm sorry I'm a bit cheesy). But in all honesty you need to celebrate taking this step in the right direction. Personally for me when I started being a raw till 4 vegan I was already 4 years vegetarian and I'm lactose intolerant so the transition was rather smooth. My best advice would be to make smoothies they are super easy to make and taste wonderful in the morning. I personally have 2-4 banana's and about a cup to 2 cups of any fruit (I mostly buy frozen mixes from the store) in my smoothies each morning. Add a little water, blend it up, and there you have your super yummy and good for you breakfast! there are a ton of vegan recipes out there (especially on youtube). I hope this helps some! Remember love and light, you are headed in the right direction.
We here on 30BaD do not recommend transitioning but rather going vegan when you join this site if you were not vegan already. Going 100% straight away lets you experience a profound change mentally as well as physically. Watch lots of informational videos including Earthlings and Forks Over Knives. This is also a really good one on he state of our oceans (another good reason to go vegan): Fish For Health
I suggest getting the free cronometer app and trying to hit the numbers each day. I try to get the 80 10 10 carb/fat/protein ratio and get to 100% of the rda of protein, omega 3s, and the vitamins and minerals. Its fun, like a game. And it has been very educational. Especially seeing how big an impact nuts and seeds have on the fat %.
I really think that if you get enough calories and hit the 80 10 10 ratio each day eating the healthy plant foods you will get an energy boost that will encourage you to keep going. That has been my experience anyway. Good luck!
