So I was wondering if anyone had any tips about getting all the healthy goodness of nuts without the actual nuts. I love the Kind Diet book and I've been trying to go vegan for years but I've found there is a lot of focus on the goodness of nuts as a replacement for animal products which would be fantastic only I'm really allergic. I also can eat soy. Is there any help out there for me or should I give up my dreams of leading a cruelty life now before I get to attached?
I've been vegan for a year now and our family has tons of allergies including nuts, sesame, lentils, chickpeas, and avocado. I avoid all these foods at home and have been doing well on the vegan diet.
I do eat soy though, I'm not sure what I'd do without that. I use a lot of hemp and chia as the previous poster mentioned and pumpkin and rice protein powders. I also use a lot of beans. I've never really felt like I'm lacking variety because there are so many combinations of grains, veggies, protein and flavours.
My splurges when I go out know are avocados and chickpeas! :)
