Question: Hi. I am already a vegetarian, but I would really like to become a Vegan at one point. I'm just curious what sort of things you eat, and are there any cakes or cookies that you could make without eggs or milk? Lol, obviously I don't know anything about baking, but I really like cake! Of course I'd sacrifice it if it's impossible to have though... What other things do you/can you eat? Obviously I'll be doing research at other places too, and getting cookbooks and all that, but I thought this would be a good place to start and get some ideas. Thanks in advance! :-)

Vegan diets are more varied than most people think. The choices we can make are extensive. My staple foods are veggie mince, sausages and burgers, houmous, vegetables and fruit, nuts, bread, rice, pasta, cakes, cookies and puddings, vegan cheeses and sauces, chocolate, yoghurts... I experiment with new recipes a lot, and am constantly surprised by how many substitute foods I can get, like egg replacement or "beef" strips for example! I make the most wonderful three cheese lasagne, which you are welcome to have the recipe for - just let me know! Here are some excellent links to get your mouth watering and set you on your way to being an awesome vegan! ;) http://www.vegansociety.com/home.php http://www.veganfamily.co.uk/kitchen.html http://www.veganvillage.co.uk/fddrnk.htm http://www.parsleysoup.co.uk/

Vegans don't care They dont care millions of animals are killed so they can eat They dont care millions of animals are shot, trapped and posioned to protect the crops they eat The land needed to grow vegan food means wild land is plowed over, land used to grow animal food can't be used for anything else so it doesn't take away from anything All that toxic run off from produce farms cause mass die offs They dont care everything they own kills or killed animals They dont care having a car killed animal plant protein is not the same as the proepr easy to digest meat protein. Humans are omnivores and need meat.

There are plenty of cakes, cookies, pies, etc. that you can make without animal products. "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" is an excellent cookbook by the amazing Isa Chandra Moskowitz. "My Sweet Vegan" by Hannah Kaminsky is another terrific dessert resource. For an overall cookbook, nothing beats "Veganomicon" also by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.

Chocolate craving - Get oats (like the cereal oatmeal) and add molassis and chocolate that you have melted with a little oil. Find a dark chocolate which ingredients state soy lecithin rather than milk as an emulsifier (found some at meijer) and allow to cool. Add enough chocolate and molassis so the oats are just coated, and stick together like a dough. let cool on wax paper. yum. Soup - get some butternut squash and caulliflour. If you have a pressure cooker steam for a few minutes with oil. When done, add soymilk, garlic, sea salt, and pepper. Make sure the soymilk is not vanilla.

I found great recipes for vegan chocolate cake and pumpkin pie on the web. I also have bought several vegan cookbooks on e-bay. I eat alot of beans and lentil soup, vegetables and salad. I hope to expand what I eat to include Indian vegan recipes and more tofu. My boyfriend has been a vegan since he was 16 (he is now 50) and he likes a really simple diet.

well just the other day i made my first vegan cake ever, it turned out kinda more bready than normal cake but tasted really good, basically in any recipe you can replace eggs with a powder called egg replacer, you can replace milk with soy milk, and you can replace butter with earth balance, i just google recipes when im looking for something and then just read the reviews on it, ps, peanut butter and jelly is the easiest vegan food to make, and pretty much lived off of it for a while until i learned how to cook and make more vegan food

Weldon Originally Answered: Vegans and raw vegans what do you eat in a day?
I was living under the exact same circumstances as you two years ago. I'm now 19 years old and have been a Vegan for over a year (yay!) and vegetarian an additional year prior. I loved my ice-cream, chocolate and most of all... cheese! I had no idea about the cruelty that went into the dairy and egg industries and also was not aware of the health detriments that came along with dairy consumption. In fact, the only reason I continued to consume some dairy and eggs was because I thought I was actually doing my body good! Last year, I stumbled across a video by doctor McDougall which changed my life forever. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJvrlwnEq... After watching the video, I started doing my own research; reading books, reaching out to other vegans and browsing the net. Within only a week, I went Vegan and never looked back. It was SOOO much easier than I thought it would be! There is really so much to choose from as a vegan. Pretty much anything you eat as an omnivore or vegetarian... you can also get in vegan form. I suggest you use dairy alternatives such as rice or almond milk whilst converting to full-vegan, and you might even want to try the vegan cheeses (I have never tried these). My cravings for dairy vanished within only a week and I was never tempted to consume any dairy since. Anyway, I'm babbling on, so I'll get to the point... I eat mostly raw, high-carb, low-fat vegan. I have only one cooked meal a day. I consume about 80% calories from carbs, 10% from fat and 10% from protein. Basically, I eat A LOT of fruit! After that, it's root vegetables like potatoes and other starchy foods like quinoa, lentils, brown or basmati rice, or spelt pasta. I eat some greens every day, too like spinach and kale (which I usually just add to my fruit/veg smoothies). I eat fats only in moderation. So... half an avocado every 3 days or so, or some chia seeds in my smoothies every now and then. My b12 levels are within range, since I don't worry too much about washing all my fruit (because it's organic), but I do take nutritional yeast flakes every once in a while... it tastes great with pasta! I drink around 2L of water each day. I struggle to get enough water usually, so I add 1 litre to each of my smoothies, but sometimes replace it with coconut water. Uh, that's about it, I guess! I used to eat a lot of those packaged vegan jerky's, vegan chocolates etc, but over time, I've just felt that they are unnecessary and don't get any cravings for all that crap since I get my sweet fix from all the fruit I'm eating. I've managed to lose 8 kilos since going vegan (and keep it off!) which was a pleasant change. I've got more energy than I've ever had. I used to throw myself onto the couch every day after school, but my energy levels stay up throughout the day and I have no trouble getting up in the mornings anymore! My hayfever has vanished and I don't need to use an inhaler anymore for my asthma. Whenever I go to a family gathering, I'm constantly getting positive compliments about how much healthier I'm looking and how my skin is looking so much clearer since I changed my eating habits. I'm so happy and proud to have been a Vegan for over a year and look forward to only more great outcomes as time continues to pass. Going vegan is the best thing you can do for your health, as well as for the animals, the environment, and those living in poverty. But please, make sure you have educated yourself in terms of nutrition before you jump into this lifestyle. It really isn't hard at all if you're eating whole foods and keeping away from processed packaged crap and take-away. I just thought I'd point that out because so many new vegans make the mistake of relying on tofu (which I suggest you never eat!) and living off the paleo (low-carb) diet, which will only harm your body. Eat, eat, eat! Those are my words of advice to you... just make sure you're eating those foods I suggested above and keep away from greasy, salty or refined foods and you'll be on the right track! Edit: I forgot to add, I eat lots of dates too and add them to my smoothies. I also love coconut sugar because it's low-GI and is packed with nutrients!
