I am looking for some really yummy recipes with lots of flavor. I hate to admit it but I like the taste of stuff in packages! I know it's wrong and I feel yucky afterwards but that's why I'm here! looking to change so throw anything you've got my way ;)
I really like IsaMoskowitz's recipe books. I have Vegan with a Vengeance plus a few other random vegan cook books I've ordered along the way but I think I use her one the most. They're great because alot of it is comfort food, which is handy but you can always put a healthy twist to it or use less sugar etc in it if you feel you don't need it ... that sort of thing.
In terms of blogs, I like ...... Oh She Glows, Little House of Veggies, Post Punk Kitchen and about 20 more I can't think of right now but I go searching all the time. I just heard about this ebook, which I haven't bought but it's only $5 to download and seems to have good reviews ... http://eatawesome.ca/ . So you could look at that as that are all meant to be pretty straight forward and all have pictures next to them too. It sounds great.
I think as you go along your tastes will change and I know for me, I am enjoying cooking now where as before I was a terrible cook and didn't enjoy it (most likely because I didn't love what I was eating). There are nights when I reach for the lentil burgers and I've just found an organic curry paste that means I don't have to start a curry from scratch on a week night ... there are always short cuts but you can pick healthy short cuts to help you out, rather than over processed ones. After a while you'll start craving brown rice and things like that more and more.
It does! I guess I am considered a flirt but I'm really trying! If I can just build up my arsenal of awesome food then I have faith that I can make this relationship work (even without much support from the fam :/ ) I will check those out and yes I am hoping my taste buds will change for the better.
That sounds like a good plan .... it took me up to around 6 months of being vegan when I realised one day that I didn't have to think about it anymore in terms of how or what to cook and my pantry was completely converted and I felt amazing. Just read as much as you can on it all ... I really think the more knowledge you have on it, the easier it is to switch your way of thinking over and also it makes it easier dealing with people that don't agree because you eventually feel confident enough to say or just know that it's a good way to live. All of those blogs are fanastic too as they are really motivating as you are in a world where people already 'get it' just like here on this website. It makes you more motivated and keeps you on the same wavelength!
