Even amidst my silence, many of you know that I am Vegan and have been looking for ways to make sure I get all the nutrients I need in plant based form. A few weeks back I was dragging my tail and just couldn't seem to get out of my own way, exhausted all the time. I wondered if I was deficient in something so I made my way to the local herbal pharmacy. I found some awesome Vegan food products and this led me to the book and website Thrive! They have free Vegan (and allergen free) nutrition classes, recipes, and other goodies. I am so psyched that there is something out there that fits my life style and takes into account my specific allergens. Most books I have read on Vegan nutrition seem to push whole wheat and whole grain products where I have Celiac and can't do those. So...anyone who wants to look into Vegan nutrition, check out Brendan Brazier's Thrive. It's awesome.

    Interesting! I've been toying with making the change to vegan but wondered how I was going to get enough protein. Thanks for sharing!

    I love So Delicious coconut milk, too. And yes, Alisha, the B12 is vegan. All of their products are vegan, and their French Vanilla coconut milk creamer is incredible. You'd love these, Kerry!

    Have you tried some coconut milk? The "So Delicious" variety is pretty good on carbs and a good source of B12. I don't know if the B12 source is vegan. Just a thought.

    Kerry, I'm glad you've found something that will work for you! I can't imagine having to deal with all those food allergies.

    Kerry, I JUST read this book last weekend! It's life changing! I love it!
    I've already started using some of his products. They're so filling and satisfying. And it's really nice he pretty much gives you the rough recipes for the products so you don't HAVE to buy them.
    Glad you found something that really works for you!
