Wow thats a lot to answer in one post where to start?!?
Ive been veg ALL my life 32 years
its not difficult at all I find it very easy - even when I eat out... I never go hungry.
In regards to Kosher foods you could say my diet is kosher as while I DO take dairy (i'm not VEGAN) I refuse to eat cheese made with rennet or yoghurt
made with gelatin,
I guess the only reason you could say my food is NOT kosher is if you are one of those rreally orthodox jews who believe the food has to be cooked and
served by a sabbath observing jew. Other than that - yup I'm kosher.
IN regards to what I eat - my protein I get from Seitan (gluten) and sometimes soy though I try to avoid soy its NOT good for you, Legumes, nuts and
seeds. You might be suprised to find protein places you never thought - such as Lettuce as a high percenttage of protein!
My meals look lke what I assume anyone elses would - but with meat substitiues.. because I have kids to feed our family meals include a lot of the
Spaghetti with Meatless Balls (gluten or soy_. Pasta bakes, Stir frys with Veggie meats, Vegie Burgers, Vegie Hotdogs, LOTS of INdian curries (hey
its my culture)
Basically moto is : anything you can cook I can cook Vegie...
um except caviar ...never found a veggie sub for that yet ;-)
A lot of ppl think Vegos and vegans are skinny and anemic but many of the worlds top athletes are vego. A few of the UFC boys just went vego - it got
a lot of press.
Check out this website for VEGAN BODYBULDING... yes its real and no they dont use 'roids... aside from learnign a lot about how to maximize your food
potential they have AWESOME daily meals plans for all kinds of lifestyles
