I have been vegan for about 2 weeks now and it's easier than i thought. I guess also because I feel strongly about it, It's not a sacrifice for me to give up animal products.
I have replaced
-milk with flax milk
-sugar with agave nectar (I know sugar isn't an animal product, just a health choice)
-butter with earth balance
-flour with rice flour (david is gluten free)
-eggs can easily be substituted in recipes, but we have stopped eating them on their own
-Cheese I have just avoided this past week, Haven't even looked into subs yet.
A friend gave me Alicia Silverstone's book "The Kind Diet" on being vegan and I have been devouring it!! It's really informative and simple. From what I've read so far I would definitely recommend it, I am consantly bombarding David with all the facts i'm learning.
In the photo is a meal I have been making a lot the past week, I looovvvve it! It is spinach, quinoa, and pumpkin seeds with a vinagrette of olive oil, honey, and lemon juice. Topped with diced yams grilled with onions, and then sliced avacado. nom nom.
