That would be my main starting place is looking at vegan recipe books and finding one that had items I found appealing or wanted to try. What are some things (vegan or not). That you like to eat now? It might help to know that as well because similar recipes can be found.
There are lots of forums online for vegetarians and vegans, some which may be more appealing to you than others. There's Veggieboards which I am a moderator at and have been on for years. The members can be a bit immature at times, but any questions you have will be answered quickly. There's also the forums linked off The Post Punk Kitchen: Vegetarian cooking & vegan baking with no attitude
. They're a really nice bunch of people too and the site's content has a lot of recipes and tips. Having outside support whether it's a local in-person group or online is one of the things many of us need to get started and keep going. I hope this helps.
