I just looked because I'm eating the Food for Life english muffins...they say "dairy free" etc.
I'm pretty average-joe myself, and I'm doing Vegan Mon-Fri now. I LOVE the way I feel, and since I'm so new at it, each day I do vegan feels like a success. I'm not a superhero type vegan, I rarely eat processed foods, but when I do there is a chance i'm consuming something non-vegan down on the ingredient list. I do keep Larabars on hand for when I'm snack attacking.
This site has been VERY helpful and inspirational. I'm in small town WI, dont even know any other vegetarians right now, much less a vegan, so the people I talk to here are lifesavers. Good luck!! kva
PB& J is totally vegan. Amost all bread is vegan (unless it has cheese on top or something). Vegan food isn't its own kind of substance or anything, a lot of normal everyday things are vegan. Vegan just means it is plant based and doesn't have meat, milk, butter, cheese, eggs or other animal products (don't worry yeast is not an animal). There are a lot of trace ingredients in processed foods that might come from animals, but i didn't worry about those in the beginning (although it is good to cut back on foods whos ingredients you don't understand). There is a learning curve, but be patient at first and find out what you already liked thats vegan. Pasta and tomato sauce (with no parmesan), bread, peanut butter, bagels, salads with balsamic vinegrette, hummos and falafel and pita, tortilla chips with guacamole or salsa, and fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, oils, the list goes on and on. The Kind Diet is really great for guiding you gradually into a plant based diet.
