I just bought Fage yogurt to do this - 1/2 cup is all that is needed. You could get the culture at the health food store though - I've neve made it that way... Then just continue to save 1/2 cup from batch. Full fat milk - you could use soy, cow, goat or whatever kind of milk you want.

"When you had your indulgent meal of {name it here} instead of going all out, WHY not turn it around right there?

Anyone who has successfully figured out that SMALL SUCCESSES make BIG SUCCESSES.

In an enormous act of love, the kindest thing you can do is walk away from this junk food.

The act of saying NO lays down a boundary of love. NO to junk food means YES to you, which after all is the point."

so you buy yogart culture to make yogart? Where do you find yogart culture? What kind of milk do you use? I think I remember adding sugar to it. Glad yours does not call for sugar. Thanks! Wanda

I have a yogurt maker the investment is about $20 ( and SO worth it).... Heat milk to 180 degrees, then cool milk to about 110 degrees ( don't know why, but that's what the directions say to do)mix live active yogurt culture into milk ( can use yogurt with live active cultures in it) make sure it is thin and well mixed if using yogurt, place in yogurt maker fot 8-10 hours ( I usually do this in the evening time so when I get up I can put in fridge) place yogurt in fridge for about 2 hours and enjoy - the tempurture needs to be for the 8-10 hours at 70 degrees for the yogurt cultures to incubate. the higher the fat content of the milk the thicker the yogurt.

beans:kidney, black, navy and pinto

salt
honey
oatmeal

I think this is it... For now, I create a menu plan each week so the list changes as the list does... BUT these are bought at least monthly - well not the salt and honey, but they are used often enough to make this list - I do have 3 kids who like a fork of honey on their oatmeal AND a dh who makes mead ( a honey wine)...

1. whole wheat pita/wraps - I use them for so many things. I fill them with lean protein, nut butter and fruit, salad, and more. I also cut them into wedges and bake them and use them as chips (dipped in hummus... yum). I also spread them with a little bit of olive oil, vegggies and low-fat parm or mozzarella and back for a yummy, crunchy pizza. So versitile!
2. Garbanzos. Hummus, roasted w/ spices, absolutely a staple!
3. Plain yogurt. Mix it with fresh or frozen fruit and a little agave nectar. Top with home-made granola or chopped nuts for an extra treat!

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Ezekiel 4:9 bread
Bob's Red Mill for grains, oatmeal
herbs - fresh and dried, depending on my meal plans
herbal teas
fruit and veggie juices (organic)
almond, rice, and/or soy milk
hummus
Amy's for when I need a fast meal (At the day job, I've been called at 8:15 am to go in for an 8 am call - I need something fast!)
boxed soups for those tightly scheduled days
organic eggs, until I learn more about veganism and make sure I'm eating right.
frozen and canned organic vegetables(you had fresh only)
beans - canned and dried
brown and basmati rice

It sounds like you're looking for brands, though, so just in case:
Arrowhead Mills
Food for Life (the Ezekiel bread)
Nature's Path
Health Valley
Rice Dream
Almond Breeze
Silk
Amy's
Annie's
Lightlife
Bionaturae
Morningstar Farms
Gardenburger
Pacific (the boxed soups I mentioned)
Imagine (also boxed soups - the butternut squash soup is really yummy)
Muir Glen
Westbrae

These are a few brands I recognized when I read through one of the vegan diet books I picked up over the holidays. (Mostly the vegan books by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin - I'm not sure the title will be acceptable on the forum! :-)

Edited to add: I joined thinking this group was just another vegetarian type group - I now realize (after reading the threads I probably should have read first) that it's actually a diet plan/book/workbook/etc. While I won't be directly following this, yay for another resource for recipes! I'll have to check it out through my local library system, as I've already spent my book allotment for the first quarter of the year (all on books towards my resolutions, but still...)

Hope this helps
Blessings Always
Elisabeth

What are some must-have items that everyone picks up when they go to the store? Aside from fresh fruits and vegetables, those are no brainers.
I'd really like to know because I get tempted by the not-so-healthy stuff waay too often! It's best to go in with a specific brand in mind to stick to.

Every one of you on sparkpeople is unique and amazing!!! always remember that

:) Martha
