    I’ve been a Vegetarian for a while, but now I think I’m ready to become a Vegan. While I was in the Superstore today, I was looking at all the numerous options/alternatives I didn’t know I had before. I’m quite enjoying the new food I bought today, but I need someone to shed some light for me on something..

    Since I won’t be able to drink normal milk anymore, is Organic Milk the right alternative? Because I’m allergic to Soy Milk I just learned…

    Is Organic considered Vegan?

    What’s an egg alternative I can use for baking?

    No, organic just means its free of additives. some farmers markets have milk from local farms(which are usually humane) but there is almond milk, Its pretty good! bananas, applesauce, garbanzo bean flour all work for egg replacement. 1/4 cup of the substitute equal one egg. but be careful if you use banana, whatever you make will take on that flavor. And some stores carry an “egg substitute’ but its usually more expensive then what I listed .
    Good Luck!! 🙂

    So, glad to hear you are planning on going vegan.
    People listened alternative milks other then soy below, but I also wanted to include that a lot of coffee places carry different milk (I’m a bit of a drinks addict, so for me it’s esp. good to know). For example, both goodearth and secondcup carry almond milk.

    Your questions are already answered so I’ll just say:
    Awesome! You’ve made a very good choice.
    Keep in mind that not only is dropping dairy & eggs easier than you’d think but it gets even easier as time passes.

    If you happen to stumble, don’t allow it to serve as an excuse to give up.
    Just put yourself right back on track & keep going.

    Organic is way far from vegan. baby calves are still taken by their mommys. Instead try these alternatives: almond milk, hemp milk, coconut milk, rice milk, oat milk, sunflower seed milk, etc.

    As for egg replacer I mix a tbsp of flaxseed meal and 2 tbsp of water.

    Organic is not necessarily vegan and vegan is not necessarily organic. 2 totally different concepts.
    Organic = Grown in an environment free from artificial agrichemicals, and possibly certified by a regulatory body.
    Veganism = The practice of eating neither meat nor other animal products, such as fish, milk and milk products, eggs, and honey. A way of life which strictly avoids use of any kind of animal products and services that are based on exploitation of animals.

    I use PETA’s Ultimate Vegan Baking Cheat Sheet…it covers all sorts of vegan substitutions including egg subs. 🙂
