Hello I am another convertee to veganism. Any vegans out there that can share some easy receipes? Also can someone reccomend a soy yogurt? I eat yogurt as a regular part of my daily routine, so I really do need a substitute for the dairy kind. I tried a vegan chocolate cake yesterday that my friend made using egg replacements, and it was pretty good.

I had a friend growing up who was deathly allergic to eggs and I made her a birthday cake a few times using a little vinegar instead of eggs. I couldn't tell the difference.

Just curious, why go vegan? I don't really care what other people eat, but since you announced it, thought I would ask.

30 Minute Vegan, by Mark Reinfeld, Jennifer Murray

Plus I had the raw food vegan meal at this guys restaurant last week in LA:

Thanks for all the book reccomendations and the vinegar suggestion. I just don't like eating animal products or products that come from animals. I have been lacto vegetarian for a long time and now it is just about not eating dairy anymore. I am not looking to convert anyone to my way of thinking, but if I don't need to eat meat for survival then why should I. The mom and pop farms are a thing of the past and I am disgusted by "factory farming".

That's cool, I was just wondering. Like I said, I really don't care what other people eat and I didn't get the vibe you were trying to be preachy about it, at all.

I would die if I went Vegan. Literally. I survive on dairy and meat.

Try the Skinny Bitch books. They are vegan and have some good suggestions.

I was vegan for about a month after watching Food, Inc.

Aren't eggs an animal product?
