I never really liked eggs but someone the other day that they just miss eggs! So I thought about writing a post about it.
Instead of using eggs, use tofu instead for scrambles. It’s WAY better for you, and tastes just as great. I like it better, if you ask for my opinion.
When it comes to baking, there are so many different ways to replace eggs. You have beans, tofu, applesauce, vinegar and soy milk, and egg replacers. I never used egg replacers so I couldn’t tell you how well it works. I like using tofu and vinegar & soy milk. It’s easy, you don’t have to go out of your of buying it and if you feel like impulsive baking you can.
Do you have any other ways to replace eggs? Like I said I never really liked eggs ever, so my advice today isn’t the greatest.
P.S. If you have any vegan/vegetarian struggles you want me to blog about, please let me know! Also I’m here to give anyone any advice and recipes if they want them. Also, follow me on Twitter: @VeggieGirl29 for way more fun!
This post came from my sister, who is vegan/vegetarian throughout the week. She constantly is complaining how hungry she is. I guess everyone who just starts out feels the same way.
When I was first starting out vegetarian, I called it the ‘scary 2nd month’. I don’t know what it is but it seems like 2nd month of being vegetarian or vegan, who are hungry ALL THE TIME! It’s ridiculous. I remember having a whole bag of potato chips and still hungry.
If you are hungry here are some options for you that usually fill me up right away: nuts, bread, protein shake, bananas. Those help me through meals. And just give it time, it will get easier. Eventually your body will get use to your diet.
If you are hungry all the time, what do you do to cure it? Maybe I can give this advice to my sister.
Hungry at the moment,
p.s alway talk to me on here of Twitter: @VeggieGirl29 I will always talk on there as well, also follow!! (:
I’ve briefly talked about this topic, but I think it’s time to really talk about it. It’s time to talk about eating out in a Omnivore restaurant, or eating with omnivores. Yes, it sometimes hard, but it can be interesting.
First, when I go to a omnivore restaurant, I can usually pick out all the vegetarian options. Then when I find a pasta dish or a salad. I ask ‘how it’s prepared’ and ‘what kind of dressing is it’. I know how to figure things out without their knowledge of my being vegan. It’s not that I’m ashamed of it, I’m ashamed of the comments and confusion (read my Bullying or Against Religion?). So I go without, and learn how to.
But if I go to the restaurant with my mom, she makes a HUGE deal about it. She will let the host know I’m a vegan, and tells the waitress like 5 times. Just in case she didn’t hear the first time. I’m find with that, and awesome that she supports me, it just gets awkward. Like the waitress asks if we want desserts, my moms like, ‘no, we have a vegan’ like I’m an animal.
But when you go to a place where you know you can’t eat anything with your friends, that’s the worst. I went to a Barbecue Burger place with the swim team, not one thing on the menu. So I ate the snacks I brought. It’s funny because my now boyfriend, who wasn’t back then, got a burger. When he found I was vegan, he stopped eating it, because he thought I thought it was gross. It was funny/cute.
Do you have any funny/tragic restaurant stories? If so, please share with me! I want to know. Because I’ve had a fair share of mine.
Lovin’ the food,
p.s. you can always talked to me on here, I’m ALWAYS willing to listen. And follow me on Twitter, @VeggieGir29 for more hilarious moments (:
Someone told me the other day that its hard to find a male partner that is vegan. I COMPLETELY agree with you. I’ve never met one male vegan in my entire life. It tends to be something girls do, especially in high school and early 20’s. I don’t know why, just is.
I’ve dated guy who ate meat while I’m vegan, and its not that bad. Yes dates sometimes get awkward but besides that its okay. It’s not the guy you have to worry about, its the family. They don’t understand what is really going on, and why their son is dating someone like this. But you just have to remember you are dating him, not his family. But eating together was fine, and sometimes they make healthier decisions around you, which benefits them.
Like I said, never met a male vegan so I can’t really say to much about them. I think men don’t want to be vegan so they can be big and muscular. I guess don’t think they can’t be both. Which they can, I’ve heard of MMA fighters being vegans. Just saying. Channing Tatum was when he was filming “Magic Mike”. So you can have both worlds.
If you are a male vegan, please introduce yourself, so I can finally meet one (lol). And I hope everyone had a fun weekend, I did!!
P.S. You can always reach me here or on Twitter: @VeggieGirl29 to talk to me about anything you are going through. I will always listen (:
So recently two people that read my blog, told me that they’ve been bullied for their eating habits. I am on the same boat with you. I have had to fight my own battles because I’m the only vegan at my school that I know.
One person said that people tried to put meat in her food, now that is unacceptable. No one deserves to be treated that way. I have never had that happened to me and I would probably go off on them. You deserve to do whatever makes you happy, no matter what it is. Don’t let those people break you.
The other story I heard having battles over facebook, and everyone agreeing with individual. I’ve had that happened to me. You just have remember that you are not doing this for them, you doing this for the plant and all living organisms. You remember that you won’t have heart disease and cancer from the meat people will be eating; you will have a healthier life.
Bullying is never okay, no matter what. Just because you are different, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be happy and live the life that you want to live. And remember the only reason why people bully is because they are insecure with themselves.
Be happy that you are vegan, and if you need ANYONE to talk to about ANYTHING, I’m here for you guys. I’m here to help you.
P.S. If you have any questions or comments don’t be afraid to say anything, I’m here to talk. Also follow me on Twitter and I can chat with you there.
So the first vegan/vegetarian struggle I read was that this person is the only friend that is vegan. I’m almost in that boat, I have one friend that doesn’t go to our school. I think I’m the only vegan in my entire school though.
It’s hard being the only friend that is vegan/vegetarian, but you have to think long term. You are doing something great for this earth and your health. Every time you think you are alone (I do sometimes) just think about the 100 animals you save in a year. Hopefully that helps.
Now on the fact that you want to change them, don’t. You are just doing the exact same thing that they are doing. They are trying for you to eat meat and you will stay where you are. So if they eat meat, let them make their dietary decisions, you made yours. You are going to influence them to make healthier choices when they are around you, and that’s good enough. But accept your friends for who they are just like the accept you for who you are.
I have one friend that hates vegetables, but all she ever makes is vegan desserts, I help in that way.
As friendly as always,
P.S. If you want a vegan/vegetarian friend, I can always be on. Just ‘ask me a question’ and I will answer privately and we can talk their. Also you can always ask me question about being vegan or vegetarian (I’ve been both) and I will find an answer. You can always follow me on Twitter as well and talk to me their.
Thank you for everyone that answered my question today, because of you I have 7 new blog posts, thats one week!! I will post about every single one of your answers, and you can keep on answering because I will keep on blogging.
I know your struggles are hard, but remember you are doing a great thing for the planet and for us as a organisms. You are thinking about more than yourself but all other creature as well. I want to thank you for being vegan/vegetarian.
From the bottom of my heart,
You always talk to me on here, I will always reply no matter how long it takes. Also you can follow me on Twitter and talk to me there as well. I like to hear what is going on with you, and you guys get to know me a little more.
What vegan/vegetarian struggles have you guys faced recently?
Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures.
Someone asked me what is the best way to convince stubborn people that a vegan diet is healthy. I guess I’m going to just start by telling people what I say.
First I tell people that since I’m still alive, obviously its healthy. I haven’t lost a significant amount of weight (didn’t have any in the first place) so obviously I don’t have an eating disorder either - a LOT of people thought I had one.
I also tell them its healthy because I make good decisions on what is entering my body, what I want in my body is natural and good for you. Antibiotics and hormones are not the first on my list. I tell them that having a plant based diet I know what’s going in my system, not just taking a random guess. It’s not only healthier but smarter.
Lastly, I tell them that I have a BETTER chance of getting my vitamins and nutrients by having a plant based diet. I still get protein, calcium, and vitamin D in soy milk but also green leafy vegetables (which I’m more likely to eat because all I eat is plants). It’s also easier for your body to break down these nutrients, so I have access to them quicker and better for me.
I hope this helped the person who asked me. You know have things to tell them the next time some stubborn person says veganism is unhealthy.
From the coolest health nut around,
P.S. You veggies are always willing to ask me question about ANYTHING!! I will always answer and converse with you. And follow me on Twitter: @VeggieGirl29 to contact me their as well!
