I've been vegetarian for almost 4 yrs...dabbled in both veganism and raw veganism during that time, and continue to do so. Love the cuisine...never eat soy...except in the one Thai dish I eat. Worrying about protein is overrated according to my research...never have given a thought to it and feel fine. B12 and Vitamin D I would get tested right now before you even start so you know where you're at and keep an eye on them. But I recommend that for everyone.

I love eating this way and hope to solidify lots of fruits and salads in my diet....that really, Really makes a difference if you eat a lot of your food raw.

I have been vegetarian for 20 years and went vegan a couple months ago - doing really fine. I try new foods ever so often like grains (quinoa is delish) or legumes (ever tried a sauce bolognese made out of lentils?). Legumes are a great source of protein so you do not have to rely on soy products alone. Variety in food is the key here.

Also check out Isa Chandra Moskowitz's cookbooks! You can find vegetarian and vegan recipes here on SP, too. I have tried a lot of them and they turned out great.

Good luck with the transformation. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me an e-mail!

You'll never regret a workout!

I have been vegan for 3 yrs. It did not take me long to change over because i saw videos and read articles on how our bodies are not naturally made for digesting meat. Also, at the time I did not like vegetables. That makes things a little difficult. I was vegetarian for two weeks and then been vegan ever since. I great resource for me is fatfreevegan.com for recipes. This recipe you can try is so delicious, you won't miss meat nor dairy. http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2010/04/ridiculously-easy-curried-chickpeas-quinoa.html

the thing with a vegan diet is that you use a lot of various spices and it keeps your pallet excited. Also, the spices you are using are really good for the body and have medicinal properties.

Not either, but my niece is a vegetarian. Just be careful with your soy intake, too much of it is not good for your thyroid!
