Re: Going Vegan

Well, more details would help. How do you start? Look up some resources like vegweb.com an the vegan society (based in the UK), and read the details they have on starting up. A lot of them can send you beginner packs, as well. Pamphlets with information and such. Not having support is hard, but poss...

Re: Degestive Problems

I -think- seitan provides a decent amount of protein, possibly tvp. I'd do some research though. Most protein replacements involve beans.

My sister's baby

So my sister recently had a baby. I'm not much for kids myself and have no intention of having one, but I am interested in getting this kid to consider a vegan lifestyle when she is older. I'd like to start by exposing her to vegan food and literature young. (Yes, I am trying indoctrinate her, as I ...

Re: Vegetarian Arrogance

Er, I was being serious, I was hardly mocking you. That is called Freegan. However, there's a little bit of veal in every glass of dairy. The dairy industry is just as bad as the meat industry, so if you are doing it for ethical reasons, your logic is faulty. I really can't stand Oprah for those kin...

Re: vegan ethics question - eggs and dairy

Free-range is a misnomer. Often, for example, you can use the term cage-free and keep chickens in a crowded warehouse. Free-range has its own problems, which there are probably videos for here. Under no circumstances should you buy organic, in my opinion. If the animal gets sick, they can not treat ...

Re: The name means wolf from hell

I'm new here too, but I'm bored and replying to way too many things. You can eat a vegan diet and not lose weight, (this is true for me,) so you also have to eat healthy. I would heavily advise learning how to cook. I made myself very sick not knowing how as a vegan. There are lots of good recipes t...

Re: hi :) I'm new to the forum and to vegan cooking

It's funny, I actually haven't lost weight as a vegan, and have put on weight over the years, but since I have gone from being in my late teens to being in my 30s, that sort of goes with the territory. I do very little and consume far too much. Is your husband vegan for health or ethical reasons? I ...

Re: Vegetarian Arrogance

The only vegans I have met that were arrogant were straight-edge, and somewhat young. I don't doubt there are plenty of arrogant vegans, however, because I have met many arrogant omnivores. I doubt the trait is less abundant in herbivores.

Re: prevent other animals from killing and eating each other

No. Animals are a part of the natural cycle, humans are not. If a human is starving, I am the last person to tell him/her not to to eat meat. If it's for survival, go ahead. That said, we could deliver vegan food to starving people instead in this hypothetical scenario. I don't see a reason to mess ...

Re: Vegan And Unnatural Substances?

Hmm, I drank heavily about 9 or 10 years into being vegan, actually until my pancreas failed me, and I was rarely getting sick. I don't know if the natural food thing is the case, but it might also be a psychological thing. If it encourages you to consume less and less unnatural substances, then it'...

Re: Where Can I Find Vegan Mozzarella?

In the US, Daiya shredded vegan cheese is what you want for pizza. I also used vegourmet on small pizza bagels, but I forget what the conditions were to get it to melt in the oven, the bagels were mini, and less of the cheese melts easier. Vegourmet melts fine in the microwave if you want mini pizza...

God, you used to be able to get this stuff all over, but lately it is hard. I have used soft tofu as a substitute, and that works okay. Maybe you can find soft in your area.

I took about a year to become vegan from vegetarian. and even after that for about 6 mo. I ate honey, not yet understanding what the problem with it was. Originally I tried to eat only french fries, because I didn't know how to cook, and it made me very sick, hence the long transition from vegetaria...
