I just finished reading the first few chapters of the book on my flight to Miami from Philadelphia. I haven't eaten red meat in over 8 months, and stopped eating chicken recently. I would like to cut back on my dairy intake as well....as those few chapters were heart wrenching. I would like to stock my fridge and pantry with some MUST HAVE items so I am not running to the store every day for quick meals and snacks. So far I have..... Barley tea Soy or Rice Milk Earth balance Butter
Hi Kindone - Just bought my book today so I haven't read it yet, but I would say get some quinoa. I just started experimenting with it recently and I really, really like it! It's easy to cook and can be tossed with a couple different kinds of beans and dressing for a simple salad for lunch. And it's full of protein so it keeps you full. I buy mine from the bulk bin at Whole Foods.
Thank you both. I am familiar with Quinoa, and think I have a canister of Quinoa, Taboulleh, and CousCous in my pantry. I had some health issues a few years back and only drink decaf (black) coffee....although over the last two weeks, I kicked my 2-3 cup a day habit and have been enjoying hot water with lemon. I save my coffee fix for brunch! I will check out Dr. Tea though. I have never seen Chocolate Almond Milk before, is this also a Whole Foods item?
The price is about the same on the site as it is in the stores. For a single carton it's about $1.99. It's really good though and my kids love it. They call it Daddy's milk because my wife won't touch it and it's better than theirs. The only thing I found on the Whole Foods site was Rice Milk. Strange though, my local grocery store carries it near the pharmacy. Not sure what that's about.
I think key is coming up with some easy staple meals to get you through the first week or two. Once you come try a meal that you absoluetely love, write it in a place where you can refer to it when need ideas.
Sit down and think of any veggie meals that you currently eat that you absolutely love. Just make a list of anything easy you can try to inspire you and get you moving towards your goal. Take it one day at a time!
Two favorites I make a lot are roasted broccoli and onions covered in an ezekiel tortilla covered in homemade hummus with a side of sweet potato fries. HEAVEN! and corn torillas toasted in oven covered in a black bean dip (one can blackbeans, cumin, sea salt, chili powder and cayenne pepper to taste -purreed in a food processor) with homemade guacamole on top. Both of these are yummy and filling!
I do all my shopping at the local whole foods market and you can get original, vanilla, or chocolate almond milk from there. I just recently made the switch from organic whole milk to original almond milk and I couldn't be happier. The flavor is great! It's not any more expensive than regular milk. I believe I bought a half gallon from the cooler for about 2.99 and bought two more from the regular isle to keep in the pantry, I believe it was 2 for 6.00 or something like that.
reread the transition list page 80 i think? bacon veganaise cookies? depends on what you eat now... brown rice kale tahini pick some recipies and get those ingredients and keep buliding from there....rice crispie treats.
