We witnessed actress Lisa Bonet practically grow up on the small screen, going from adolescence to adulthood on the ’80s sitcom The Cosby Show. But in Lisa Bonet’s house, a no-television rule has been strictly enforced ever since she became a mom, to daughter Zoë, who’s now an actress in her own right.

Appearing in only a few movies over the past decade, Lisa has instead focused on yoga, art and a second wave of motherhood. She and her boyfriend of two years, actor Jason Momoa, have two daughters, Lola and Nakoa-Wolf. Changing diapers in her 40s doesn’t faze her. “The number itself feels irrelevant to me,” she says. “I look in the mirror and I see in this face all the life that has occurred.”

As far as how she will raise her latest additions to the family, she hasn’t changed her game plan: each child will be raised in a vegan household. How does one prepare for a vegan lifestyle?  We’ve compiled some of the best tips that even lovers of the Cosby Show’s “bacon burger dog” will love:

1. Take it slow

Keep your end goal in mind, but go at your own pace. Some people manage to go vegan overnight and if that’s the right approach for you, fantastic. Yet don’t be concerned if you feel you’ll need more time. Like any other lifestyle change, going vegan not only takes getting used to, but it takes time to determine what will work best for you. It’s not a one size fits all experience and there are numerous approaches you can take.
