I was also going to suggest Happy Herbivore. I've recently met Lindsay and she is very down to earth. I got one of her weekly meal plans and am eager to try it. I also suggest happycow.com. there are so many great resources out there the hardest part is deciding which to try cause they all sound so delicious. Thanks for the info on cheese. I think it will definatly help me to kick the habit.

you might want to check out the happy herbivore - happyherbivore.com/ - lindsey has recipes on the blog, a couple of cookbooks that are relatively uncomplicated, and even has meal plans using her recipes.

other good blogs are fatfree vegan: blog.fatfreevegan.com/ and carrie on vegan: www.carrieonvegan.com/

almost forgot - oh she glows is another great blog!
ohsheglows.com/

and there are soooo many good cookbooks out there:-) good luck!

Thank you so much for the information. I will check out Jeff Novick, RD

I don't really eat any grains, no bread, no creals, no pasta. I eat a lot of fruit, yogurt and smoothies. NO meat.

Thank you again. Feel free to pass along any advice to me at any time and it will be greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderful week-end

Where are you from? I live in Cody, WY, 50 miles from the East Entrance to Yellowstone, so we get a lot of tourist here in the summer.

If you are on Facebook go to Jeff Novick MS. RD.'s page. He is a vegan dietitian who works with *Dr. McDougall and *Dr. Esselstyn. Look at his photo album "My Simple Recipes" There you will find tons of 5 ingredient, healthy, low-fat and delicious recipes that take only 10-15 minutes to make and are very inexpensive too.

* These Drs. are famous for helping people get healthy and reverse heart disease by eating a vegan diet.

BTW cheese IS addictive. It has been scientifically proven that cheese and milk have a morphine-like substance in it that lets a baby cow emotionally attach to it's mother. This substance makes a person who eats the cheese feel really good and fall in love with eating it. You may even crave the cheese for a few weeks after you stop eating it. But if you get through those difficult weeks you will not miss it. (If you ever eat any again, you will have to start the de-tox all over again. Just like cocaine, unfortunately.) Makes you ask yourself if that is something that you want in your life, doesn't it? Plus, cheese is incredibly fattening. I don't want to eat anything that is 70% fat.

DNAVARETTE: Try lowering the amount of grains you are eating for a while. When my weight creeps up on me, I cut way back on grains and up the veggies and whole fruits. This allows me to still fill full when I eat but lose weight. (It goes without saying that fats and sugars need to be curtailed too.)

Do you have any easy to make vegan recipes that you are willing to share?

I'm trying to drop 5-10 lbs and it just will not move.

Hi! I've been a vegetarian for a little over 4 years. Just a few months ago I stopped eating fish, eggs, milk and mostly cheese. Why is it that cheese is always the hardest habit to kick? I've recently learned that cheese is possibly a trigger for my migraines so that is my motivating force to kick the cheese habit once and for all. I'm here to lose a few more lbs and do it in a healthy vegan manner.
