I am so happy that local stores are starting to carry more stuff.. My local grocer just started carrying Vegan yougurt in two forms (drinkable and regular).  Its amazing that it took so long since many more people are living, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan.  Stores are finally starting to get with the program!

Oh yeah, I can't believe I forgot the vegan yogurt! It is delicious and even has live cultures. They come in cups, big tubs of plain for smoothies, and those little yogurt shake things (which are my favorite). Look carefully in the yogurt section of your local grocery store, and if it's not there look in the refrigerated natural foods case (if there is one). Silk makes it, and there are some other brands too. Silk also makes a really good carton o' coffee creamer, in plain and french vanilla. I had coffee with some of that, and banana bread made with soymilk for breakfast this morning. :-D And when the holidays come around, don't forget the Silk Nog.

Wow! All these options Cheesy Thank you all so much! I am hoping to be able to cook a lot better for both hubby and I. Right now we are eating very poorly (good god it's bad sometimes, yuck).

Anyways, I'd like to be able to create meals without meat (since hubby loves his meat, lol), something that will tempt him to eat it and love it, without the meat aspect, lol. He was raised funny - plain mac n cheese with hamburger, or chopped hotdogs, plain hamburgers (meaning ground beef, no spices or flavourings), hotdogs, etc. He hates spicey foods, although I have, over 3 years, uped the amount of spice used successfully without him disliking it. He also will not eat many veggies other than what you can get frozen (although he has tried and liked: hot artichoke dip, squash when blended in soup or stew, sometimes he will eat chick peas in soup, spinach in soup, etc). Basically if I can hide it he will eat it. He hates fish with a passion! He's not big on dairy foods, but we both love cereal (I like toasted cherrio type cereal, he likes honeycomb, lol). He's not big on eating a lot of sweet things, occasionally, but not too often.

I did not know what colorings were made of, eww Sad

Well I am deffinitely going to be spending time on those sites, thank you!

This is my secret weapon for veggies/vegans/non-dairy peeps... kosher!  For people who keep strict kosher, all meals have to be either completely free of meat or completely free of dairy.  I've found a ton of cooking ideas at kosherblog.net (for example -- discussion of the best non-dairy way to thicken mashed potatoes, reviews of vegetarian meat substitutes, etc.)  There's stuff there that won't apply to you (making kosher cheese, for example), but there are loads of helpful tips in between.

I could say what loads of other people have said, but I won't.
However, when you do buy fish, make sure if it's salmon that it's not full of coloring, casue whoever processes those things love to go CRAZY with the red dye.
Other than that, everyone else has covered. Good luck  Smiley

Wow - I didn't realize that salmon was colored Undecided Thanks for the heads up! I personally love whitefish baked with lemon and pepper. Just prices and not knowing much abuot each variety of fish keep me from buying it Sad

Kosher is greqat, they have  a lot higher standards for foods. They allow less bug parts than the FDA.
For burgers, we use marinated portobella mushrooms, yum.  I always love lentils and greens, too. They are both so good for you and really cheap. The lentils have a lot of protien and the greens, such as Kale and collard greens, are full of iron and calcium! They always leave me feeling like my body really got something that it needed.
