Hey Anne - congratulations on the weight loss and the journey of veganism that you are starting! It is so great that you read Alicia's book. To get rid of those last 35lbs and to feel absolutely amazing - start using some of the superhero recipes from her book.
As far as "substituting" eggs, yogurt and cheese - there are vegan yogurts and vegan cheese too. There are recipies on the web for "eggs" - like ground flax and water etc. But - these foods are "treats" and not a regular part of the superhero "diet".
I did buy an Amy's Bowl yesterday. Oh my, it was really really good (but high in sodium). I had it last night. It was the blackeyed pea, veggies and brown rice. I just wanted to give it a try. I might keep a few on hand for emergencys.
Can you think of anything else I should pick up on Friday?
Im curious Anne if all that cost a lot of money? Its so funny how your story is pretty identical to mine! I grabbed the book yesterday and finished it today! lol I think my sadness I feel is losing dairy products. I dont drink milk but I LOVE cheese! I was planning on going to Whole Foods tomorrow to go "exploring"! haha!
I enjoyed reading these posts. I too have been reading the book and wanting to try alternatives. We do not have a Whole Foods in the Buffalo area, but some wonderful smaller shops. I hope you continue to talk about your progress..I am not sure where to gain support as I venture into serious flirting.
Have an awesome day.
