You're Gonna do What?
This is what my wife said when I told her I was getting serious about becoming a Vegan. Now you have to understand I have moved from being a full time meat eater to eating mostly veggies, fish, eggs and some dairy. That was last July, I had been laid off from work and it seemed like a nice challenge. But my overall plan had been to move into it slowly. The reason for the slow move has to do with the fact that I hate to waste food. Right now there is too much in our freezer and pantry for me to go strict Vegan.

With that in mind I started to collect Vegan recipes. For what ever reason I like to collect recipes, it helps me to curb my eating and I learn a lot about the diet before I get into it full blast! The interest makes it really nice to see a wide variety of authors and recipes that provide tips and tricks by different authors.

One of my favorite sites is Chocolate-Covered Katie, she does healthy desserts. But I love her section on-- All Things Oatmeal. It is different and really easy to do.

Another one is--Oh She Glows, she gives recipes and training tips.

Holy Cow! Vegan Recipes---Mainly because of her Indian cooking style.

Getting back to my point as with any diet, I think if you search and plan instead of rushing into it, success will come easier to the dieter. Besides, I just can't bring my self to throwing out a lot of food just to start something new. Even with giving a lot to the food banks, I just need to weed out the stuff in the pantry and just looking to develop my Vegan Pantry food list.

    I was talking with a friend about vegan living and we both agreed that we could give up chocolate before we could give up cheese. Do you have any ideas for quieting the "real" cheese craving? The soy products just don't have the right flavor or texture. Thanks!

    Adam, once more you are showing us your wisdom. It you start adding a recipe or two a week wile cuttin te ones you dont really car for anymore, you'll be able to do it in a wise useful way rather than to rush into too fast to know if it is really what you want.
