I have some questions about veganism. My mother REALLY does not want me t go vegan because of an article she read. (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/21/opinion/21planck.html) Is this valid? Is she sying that a normal adult can go vegan but not a pregnant mother or an infant? I think the article may be misleading and I would still really like to go vegan. Can anyone offer me some answers or help?

The article may raise a point about soy milk and juice alone killing a kid-- duh! But if you're supplementing and adding in things like nutritional yeast (think: slightly cheesy flakes) also taking apple cider vinegar and also blackstrap molasses ( a spoonful a day of both) is sufficient for most adult women. I've got several friends who are able to meet their iron intakes through these methods alone, and with the help of a multivitamin- live healthier lives than anyone else I know.

I"m not currently vegan, but my live-in boyfriend is, therefore, all of our meals at home are. I would recommend lots of looking around online, but my vegan friends stick to those three supplements (nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses.)

Good luck, and realize that veganism takes WORK but it is achievable

Thanks a ton! I was fairly sure that the article was blowing things out of proportion but it was still a little bothersome. I'll do a bit more research. Thank you so much for the advice!

I can't remember how I found this website, but it's call The Vegetarian Society which is based out of the UK. They have a lot of informative links on their site, and you can also request some brocures from there which they will send you in the mail.

This is a great idea for a thread.

A lot of information at the above site too.

A fantastic cookbook for both vegan and vegetarians... a book written by the fine folks from a delightful eatery called The Grit in Athens, GA.  About 2/3 of the recipes are vegan and the rest vegetarian but often adaptable to vegan.

i feel like i have to talk about some of my favorite cookbooks, since they haven't been listed so far..

the first vegan cookbook i ever bought was The New Farm Cookbook. It's a classic. The best vegan mac and cheese i have ever eaten is in here. They also have sections on how to make soymilk, tofu, tempeh, soy yogurt, etc. It also has a section on vegetarian nutrition for mothers and children if that is of concern to you. all around great book.

for quick easy meals for one, i actually like the Students Vegetarian Cookbook by carole raymond. some of the recipes are like, duh, i can already do that, but there's a lot of good yummy recipes in here.

of course, Soy Not Oi, and Please Don't Feed The Bears. they're both published by akpress. There are stories in both of these, and plenty of weird ass recipes. But i like that because a lot of cooking is inventiveness, and these books are definitely unique.  I made the yogi chai from PDFTB, and mmmmm so good. christmas presents right there.

I also have this really cool book (it's actually 2 books in one) Hot Damn and Hell Yeah by ryan splint and on the other side it's the Dirty South Cookbook by vanessa. also by ak press, also strictly vegan recipes. This cookbook is for tasty food, not necessarily healthy food. I like Hot Damn better, personally, I favor southwestern food over southern, but they're both really good. The taco and burrito fill... yummm. highly recommended.
also, the akpress books are generally inexpensive. They're small, but filled with recipes.

as for online sources, like everyone else i like
and veganlunchbox.
and i always check cheeses at cheese.joyousliving.com

a little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men. W.W

I love easy, simple and quick cooked meals Smiley Many of the cookbooks I own were listed but I thought I would add a couple more that I really really like.

Student's Go Vegan Cookbook by Carole Raymond (super duper majorly easy recipes mostly for two people)

Alive in 5 - Raw Gourmet Meals in Five Minutes by Angela Elliott (so this is raw (vegan) food which I tend to only really enjoy in the summer time, but the meals are super flavorful and only take five min to make...duh)

The Vegan Family Cookbook by Brian P. McCarthy (this is my all time fav vegan FAMILY cookbook...its not fancy meals but instead really great and easy comfort type foods, the types of meals that you could get a kid to eat!!)

Any vegans who have kids, I would really really suggest picking up the Vegan Family Cookbook, its a great addition to real family style cooking and is super kid friendly.

For those on a budget or only cooking for self or maybe you and a mate...I would super suggest the Students Go Vegan Cookbook (there is also a vegetarian version)
