    Any tips or good foods ! I will tell you what I ate today; Applejacks w/ almond milk. Fruit for lunch & for dinner I will have stir fry. Any good recipes ya’ll can share ? I live in W.V so finding substitutes in this rural town is hard. But I would like to know what you use for butter, I know oil is good… & any sub for creamer for coffee ? Also I hate beans the only kind I like is green so that takes away from foods I can eat & peas don’t like them. I am going to try & find tofu though and make some meals. But I really need some help !

    I would have added this to my post, but the way peta has this set up, you walk away from your post and you’re no longer able to edit.

    Everything, and I mean everything has an article/study for and against it. Seriously, they do. I just now found one saying olive oil is outrageously dangerous to your health. The trick is to read both and research and find which one is reputable, or is even half correct. Believing everything you read and hear off the bat is not the best way to do things, it’s really not. I used to not question anything, and I bought into some less than savory schools of thought and acted by them. And this applies to more than just vegan living.

    Coming from someone who adores anything coconut, unless you’re finding the so delicious coconut CREAMER, you do not want to put plain drinking coconut milk in your coffee. It’s way too watery and just tastes really not good.

    When you say soft tofu do you mean silken or the soft variety that comes packaged in water? The kind that comes packaged in water, firm is the best, you can can use for almost everything. From tofu scrambles to fried, it’s great. Mori-nu (the silken kind) is really only good for baking and other desserts.

    I still buy things that say it may contain traces or made on shared equipment. It’s a cover-our-asses-label for companies and really only meant to alert those with super severe life or death allergies.
    Food wise, it’s totes possible to be 100% vegan, it just gets expensive, having to hunt down brands that don’t have any of those items ever touch their equipment(like Daiya or Turtle Island foods, all items are made on dedicated vegan machinery)

    Many moons ago, I did find an article, it was the only article, that supported your claim that a particular variety of soy stuff was dangerous. I just now googled again, trying are sorts of word combos and got nothing. I would love to see what article/study you’re refereeing to. I’m not trying to fight, I really want to know.
    I used to be super paranoid of canola oil too. I stopped using it completely for cooking(even now I only use olive oil because it’s so healthy and tastes a million times better) but i found an article on Care2(awesome sites for vegans, the healh and eco conscious) that explained, and had sources, that canola oil is not as evil as we think, in certain situations. I am still looking for the one I read, but if you can find organic canola oil, you’re set. But even so, occasionally, is not dangerous. People have been consuming canola oil since World War II, and studying it since not long after, and so far the only danger that has appeared is that is was a GMO product.

    Yeah I know because the product is made in the same factory.. but I guess I will on some things.. I know that not everyone is 100% vegan unless you eat raw, but I had to stop eating butterbread because it contains less than 2% of milk and butter so I have to eat something else. Food now a days is so confusing and you don’t what products to trust sometimes.

    I have purchased and eaten snacks that had the traces of milk warning.
    These days, I stay away from them primarily because it grosses me out to think there could be some milk in there. There is a minor health concern too but no moral concern.

    Do you all by products that say: this may contain traces of milk ??

    && yeah fake meat cooked in soy protein & the conla oil I don’t try to touch just because of what I have been told, not good for you & that is what I believe too. But I got Earth balance from Walmart & I looked at all of them but they all have conla oil but I still got it.. taste pretty good. Yeah the coffee creamers I am good on, I am going to try coconut as soon as my almond is gone. I got the soft tofu from walmart and it’s okay the taste is fine & it makes a good sub for eggs.
