I too eat eggs-I always try to buy the humane certified
and cage free. Have to admit I love cheese...from time to time I try to do soy cheese...they do have rice
cheese(personally,I'm not too crazy about it-but it
might give you the same feel...)-Linda

My husband LOVES eggs and I enjoy them as well, so we finally went ahead and got 25 chicks. We raised them with love and treat them with respect. They give us enough eggs to sell and pay for thier food, plus all we want to eat. Now we get 5 new chicks every now and again so as the ones age we have more eggs. We will let them live out their natural life in comfort, even after they finish laying.
If you live in a city/suburb you can usually have two or three chickens. Google backyard poultry. It is so amazing to care for the animal that feeds you, and experience that natural give and take relationship.

My way around the eggs was that I found friends who have pet chickens. I usually purchase eggs from them, but won't eat any other product made with eggs since I don't know how the chickens are treated.

How come no soy? It really is hard to be vegan without the soy. What specific things can we help with?

Hi I a new vegetarian/vegan. I say that because I want to be truly vegan but have found it hard to give up cheese and eggs all together. I only eat maybe twice a week. I know though, with God all things are possible. My new lifestyle was effortless and when that happens, God is guiding me. It is such an awesome gift. Most of my life I wanted to be vegetarian (did'nt know about vegan) But was unable to give up meat. I read that book Skinny B**** and something flipped in me. I gave up all meat products that day and have been pretty much animal free since, except for the cheese and eggs as I mentioned before. I wish I didn't crave eggs. Anyone out there have that problem? How did you solve it? I can't do soy anymore and that really bums me out. Thanks for listening. Sally
