Totally doable! The only time I used milk pre-vegan was to hold up my cereal and in baking anyway. Soy milk is a great sub and I actually prefer it. I like almond milk for the occasional smoothie (with 1/2 frozen banana and strawberries or blueberries! Yum!).
I like the silk brand of soy yogurt. It's a nice snack every once in a while and it's great for making parfaits with fresh strawberries.
I use Earth Balance sticks as a butter replacement in baking.
I'm not much for the cheese subs. At this point cheese is so offensive that even the cheese subs gross me out. This I never suspected. I was famous from melting cheese on everything and never imagined living without it.
DH found it tough to give up 1/2 and 1/2 for his coffee. I haven't had coffee in years, so that wasn't a problem for me, but eventually DH decided that the silk soy creamer was just as good. I had it in the house because it's a key ingredient in the not-ice-cream recipes on veganicecream.blogspot.com
Since we're all working on losing weight, we won't go to that site often. Right?
