We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Well, tomorrow starts the vegan lifestyle. I'm preparing for hunger. =)

 

I think I've put on 5 pounds eating all the damn dairy and eggs I could handle this last week. Pizza after pizza, (I really like pizza).

 

Trying to put a shopping list together to ease into the new vegan status. Any ideas out there? 

 

I have dairy substitutes picked out for milk and yogurt. I love cream in my coffee, guess I'll try a soy creamer. Picking up Natural Balance as a butter replacement.

 

The rest of my list comprises the obvious; vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains and tofu.

 

Again, if there was something that helped you when you went vegan, let me know.

You are putting me to shame, Nealy :-) When you find non-dairy substitutes for yogurt and mozzarella (to put on pizza), let me know the brands, etc.

I don't know if you have a Trader Joe's nearby, but they have baked soy with a little flavor which is absolutely delicious! Firm texture, I cut it up and put it in soups, or eat it cold just like that.
You know, I don't really get the not eating honey; you are not really harming bees by harvesting their honey, plus even vegans swat flies and mosquitoes, I'm sure. I eat honey and would continue to eat it even if I managed to go completely vegan.
I have a fundamental disagreement with that philosophy of veganism: it reeks of religion, sorry to say. In that line of thought, a "true" vegan cannot exist: our very existence implies the death of other beings, what about little voles that get killed in the fields by agricultural equipment? What about vaccines or other drugs that get tested on animals? I'm opening a can of worms so I'll let it be (for now); probably should be a discussion at Atheist Morality
"They were not made for humans"

Animals were "made"?
Michel, you almost gave me a heart attack when I saw the activity Feed and it said yiou had joined the vegetarian group! LOL

That is an interesting point, was thinking of getting rid of honey as well and using agave syrup. The pricing is a bit higher on the agave; not sure what to do with that.

 

The only time I use honey is in my smoothies, and once in a great while for desert. I thought there were benefits to using local honey, something to do with allergies. 

 

Whatever, didn't buy either during my way too long shopping trip to prepare for going vegan. Hard to find the products I was looking for around the local area.

I can't stand the French Vanilla flavor, LOL. I would need a flavorless creamer.

I have used tempeh before and have had mixed results. Very nutty flavored, so needs a good strong flavor to make it meat like. I've made very good barbecued tempeh sandwiches before, but other dishes didn't come out as good. Try, try again.

 

I've thought of using refried beans and avocados as a cheese substitute, they make foods rich. I've made plenty of vegetarian breakfasts using beans instead of cheese, unfortunately it did contain eggs. But I will make breakfast burritos somehow, already thinking of trying to scramble tofu. =)

 

That recipe looks good, will have to try.

What you need to do is have a couple of hens, like Curly Girl does, if I lived in a house and not in an apartment, that's what I would do. This way I see no reason not to eat eggs.
Living in a condo stops me from doing that. =(
Ah, OK! I assumed you lived in a house since you're not in a big city.

Yeah, we have a lot of room to do so. When I bought into the complex, there were going to be 23 units, then came the crash, now we're only going to have 13. Maybe I will check into that, even though I was going to lay off the eggs for awhile as well as dairy. 

 

But a community garden is an awesome idea. Usually I just walk to the farmers market every weekend when the veggies start being harvested, (usually greens first), but would be fun to have our own. I will introduce that idea to the neighbors. Most would be fine with it, but we have the couple of crazies that everyone has that are always a problem. =)
