Amen to plain tofu = bad. I find that pressing and draining it works wonders. I also generally bake it- I like the consistency better. Here's a couple links that might help with that.

How to drain tofu:

The fish stick recipe, you can get kelp powder in bulk at Whole Foods:

It kind of looks intimidating, but once you get the ingredients together, it's really, really easy.

Tofutti slices make a pretty decent grilled cheese and I like Follow Your Heart's cheeses on quesadillas and pizza. I used to be a total cheese fiend, and I've found that the longer you're away from it, the less you want it.

Oh there are so many delicious options!!!
*Sandwiches like PB & J, or try fake meats, as well as tempeh with different marinades, or one with just tons of veggies
*Oatmeal- I like mine either cooked with some dried fruit and a shot of agave nectar (don't use the powdery instant, go for the five grain instant at Whole Foods, totally different and way better) or raw with fruit and nuts, plus some almond milk
*Pasta! Experiment with different sauces, and try out the whole wheat kind- so good. Also, I like to throw in veggies with the sauce that I'm heating up in the saucepan. It's an easy way to get more veggies in.
*Sloppy Joe's- Get the veggie beef crumbles and mix them together in a skillet with ketchup, mustard, relish, whatever you like in sloppy joes.

A big hint that I have is to make huge batches once a week and eat off the leftovers. A really, really good cookbook is Vegan With A Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, even if you aren't planning on becoming vegan. It's full of really easy recipes that make huge portions. Also, you might want to check out her website www.theppk.com. These two things are my vegan bible.

I wouldn't worry about giving up seafood (if you want it, I have a really good recipe for tofu fishsticks that are divine), and if it's an issue of being a bother for your parents, just remember that it's your body, therefore you get to choose what goes into it. I haven't eaten meat since eighth grade and I'm glad I chose that option every day. Good luck with your journey and please feel free to ask any questions (you can PM if you need recipes, I have plenty).

I'm going to be completely honest here and let you know that I'm going to steal your idea, but it won't be for profit. Lovelovelove your dress!

That is amazing and awe inspiring. Thank you for giving me a reason to stop listening to whiny music.

I want to hug you for that shirt. It made my night.
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: What are you eating for the holidays? on: December 23, 2006 05:25:58 PM
I'm a vegan too, and I just typed the word 'vegan' in front of my favorite holiday foods (i.e. green bean casserole, gravy, biscuits, etc.). I also used the Vegan With A Vengeance cookbook, and I also made some cranberry salsa. Google is your BFF in situations like this.

PS- Everything turned out really well, and there were hardly any leftovers of the vegan food.
