It is... Actually I had a little bit of a slip and at something meat based last week. It was amazing, because it was disgusting. I never knew your taste in food could change like that. Plus the sorry stomach didn't help. So, I feel more confident then ever that I have made the right decision.

Eventually they will learn to accept and not think twice about your new lifestyle. I hear you about people thinking your crazy. Some people just don't get it, and the questions about why get tiring.

That is awesome that your allergies are getting better.

Thank you for all your help. Most of my coworkers, friends and family think I am crazy for taking this step. I have told them how wonderful it is. My allergies are better, I haven't been breaking out, am more awake and happier. To top it all of, for the first time I am actually starting to lose weight. It is a great start to a great journey! I am starting to create my own dishes, which has reduced cost and I think when I first started I was trying to feed an army! So, that helped too. Thank you for all the great ideas and encouragement. emoticon

Another thing to keep in mind is that once you have these ingredients and sort of "Kind Diet-ify" your pantry, you're set for awhile, so your grocery bills go down.

I found a lot of the odder stuff at Asian grocery stores and Sunflower Market.

I have gone vegetarian and now I'm starting to follow the Kind Diet as well. I have read the book, dog eared the pages, and am going to make the recipes the best I can. One thing to know is that the recipes require some ingredients that are hard to find....instead of running around looking for them, i've decided to just omit them and add something else or change the recipe. So don't get discouraged if you see items you have no clue where to get! and if you do find out how to get them...let me know :) Good luck and Congrats on this journey. It's the best thing I've done for myself in a long time. It is actually not hard...once you give up meat the rest starts to slowly fall into place. I think the key word is slow..this is a process. Just think of how long you have been eating your present way to put into perspective how long it can take to change it all. This journey is to be loved and taken slowly. :)

Be The Change...don't just preach it!!

Beans, greens, and grains- they are all inexpensive and oh so good for you.

After a long debate with a vegan lifestyle, I finally made the change Monday morning.

I could really use the support and more.

I am interested on getting ideas, I am a college student and this change has been rather expensive. I would love to learn economical ways to continue this lifestyle and get help staying on track..

I look forward to talking with everyone and I can't wait to get my copy of the Kind Diet... It should be here this week!
