I went to see Alicia speak at UCF today and thought she said some really great things. Yet the question and answer session was really short (mostly because she gave legit answers) and even though I jumped to get in line I didn't get to ask my question. Does she ever comment on boards that get lots of responses? I was curious about what she thought of Oprah's special and vegan meat/dairy substitues. Does anyone know? Is it in the book? I haven't bought it yet, mostly because I like this site better...
Alicia does mention substitutes in her book, which I would strongly suggest you read, you can always try the library. Mostly, she suggests them for 'flirts' in helping to transition, and then things like tofu and tempeh a few times a week, and things like milk subs, faux meat products, ice cream, etc, as only very occasional treats.
Hi Kathykat- she definitely does comment. If you flag your question she tries to get to all of those. I had a general question once a while back that I didnt flag and she responded anyway. So, I say go ahead and give it a shot!
I'm already familiar with the diet since I've been on this site for awhile, am already veg, and an avid cook but I will read the book once I'm done pursuing my major...which is literature. Lol I guess you could say I have a lot on my plate already ;o) pun intended
