    I gave up meat as a new year's resolution. So far it's been great, but I'm starting to lose steam. Any advice for the weary?

    I really love 101 cookbooks. It's got great recipes even for non-vegetarian food stuffs!
    Learn your seitan and your lentils!

    BTW I found this great site recently. I believe its all vegan but its not hard to change things around from vegan to veg if you wanted to. I havent cooked anything from it yet. But I like it since I'm very photography oriented so I like seeing what I'm going to make in a professional way. And I know most people are picture oriented too..

    drchae, i figure that when i had cravings for meat that was due to a lack of nutrients. so to get rid of these cravings i found the best way was to eat dark vegetables, and root vegetables. stop eating any junk food at all, and try to not even cook anything, just steam (rice included). if it's the protein that you need, rice and beans with some hot sauce do very well. if you come across some adzuki beans, get them, they are quite nutrient dense.

    Peanut butter rice? Insane. So crazy I just might have to try it.

    Pete -- thanks for the adzuki tip. I've only had adzuki beans in sweets and ice cream so I'm curious to see how they'd go over in a regular meal.

    http:/www.vegweb.com is the way to go, you can find vegan recipes on there and most of them are convertible from vegetarian. The best part is that people review it and upload their photos, so you can see how it will actually turn out. And you can kind of search by ingredients, etc. They have a vegan fudgsicle recipe up right now on the main page that looks scrumptious.

    I have 20+ veg cookbooks at home, even little vegan zines that I picked up here and there. The best are Vegan with a Vengeance, How it All Vegan ( and the Garden of Vegan), Don't Feed the Bears, etc.

    page one of this thread is so aggressive

    at work this woman kind of summed it up well to me: you will never be able to convince someone of the benefits of vegan foods with your words, you HAVE to do it at a potluck

    then when they say, this is good what's in it? you just say TVP and deez nuts

    what are people's thoughts on veganomicon?enjoy two cosmetics

    ^i'm not exactly the cookbook sort, but my roommate has it and made the best mac'n'creeze from it. the delicious blueberry cake thing she made might also have been from veganomicon. if so, my thumbs are definitely up.

    No, it's a plain cake mix with sprinkles added in. And store bought icing that happened to be vegan, with more sprinkles on top.
