Renee, I will definitely keep your store in mind. I think its great that regional centres have stores like yours.
Does anyone know where I can purchase nutritional/savoury yeast at a reasonable price? I've seen 127g for $8.95 at Sunnybrook and 100g for $8.00 at Organic Wholefoods. Could I purchase it for cheaper? Renee, I couldn't see any on your website.
I've purchased a few American vegan cookbooks and come across many website recipes that call for it. Must be a staple in an American vegan diet.
Another store that I have come across in Melbourne is Aunt Maggie's in Carlisle St, Balaclava, a little pricey but a huge selection. I even managed to find "Kombu". They only opened in September 2012, it was formerly Carlisle Health Foods but they were in smaller premises so their range was limited.
hi just started i'm not vegan i'm pescatariain although i don't eat chicken n very little dairy just ice-cream n a boost smoothy every now n then. i gave up land animals boxing day n most dairy 2 weeks later. just wanted to take it slow. i have had intolerances to wheat gluten eggs fried food & cows milk since i was 8yrs old. but have never felt well always having trouble with my stomach n bowel so i read the kind diet n decide to give it a go. i feel pretty good but have a lot of wind hoping this will pass n pun intended lol
Hi, I'm from the northern suburbs. I'm only a month in on trying to become vegan or ovovegetarian (haven't quite decided). I'm also raising my son who's just turned 8mths old. I saw a GP this morning about an allergic reaction he developed from having weetbix and soy milk. He asked me why I fed him soy and I said we're vegetarian and he pretty much just told me not to do it as he is too young and he needs iron. Then told me not to feed him either weetbix or soy. Now I'm wondering what to do as i wanted to feed him weetbix because it's iron fortified and soy B12 fortified with more protein and fat than rice milk as I think he might be too young to try almond milk. Any advice on how to make sure he receives enough iron and B12, though he really only eats around 2tbl of food at each meal and he still has breastmilk, is it too early to be worried? He does eat mashed veggies and fruit, will slowly be introducing lentils, beans and pasta. If he is allergic to soy does that mean I can't introduce tofu yet? Does anyone have advice?
I just checked a carton of dairy milk and there is no iron in it. I think your best bet is to talk to a nutritionist who is accepting of vegetarianism/veganism. Try contacting Sunnybrook as they have nutritionists and nautropaths working there.
