Hi there. I read Alicia's book and tried "flirting." Cannot really go completely vegan at this point...love cheese too much! But am trying to make the grains/beans the main source. Need ideas to keep motivated and new recipes. Any suggestions? Any one new like me?
I am also new. That is to say that I have read the book and am really excited to start this diet. I just generally feel yucky. I want that to change. I happen to like fruits and veggies so I am kind of starting Vegan at home, with what I already have as I cut out more and more bad stuff. I like trying new recipes and just go through all my cookbooks and try the ones with veggies and grains. By the way Im Kendra Drylie. Look forward to doing this with other newbies.
GG, you may have already read this somewhere already, but Daiya "cheese" is so amazingly good that you may not even miss the real thing. If you go to their website daiyafoods.com you can see where it's available in your area.
I made the Rustic Pasta from Alicia's book last night and it was AMAZING.
I, too, am a newbie.........I just ordered the book from Amazon. I have been trying to be vegetarian, and would like to progress to vegan. I feel ok...............I just don't want to contribute to animal cruelty any more.
I hope to be able to contribute more to this forum once I have read the book.
There really are great alternatives to the cheese that you wn't feel like you're missing anything! I am not a vegan expert, I have so much to learn. Being a vegetarian for 6 years and now a vegan, i can definately say that this is definately the way for me. I don't miss anything that I used to eat at all, and I am using this site for references. The book is a great jumping off point, with facts on how this really is the only way a person should eat. Especially when it makes you feel SO good... :)
