Default Newbie - Vegetarian / Baby Vegan

Hi everyone!

I am new to the site and I guess a "baby vegan" or vegan in training....

I made the move to vegetarian almost 2 years ago and now working on getting the dairy out of my diet. First was health reasons, high blood pressure and a family history of heart disease...and second I have always had issue with eating animals since i was a kid..finally decided to do something about it.

I have 3 kids (8, 3, 3, not a mistake..twins ) and a omnivore husband so its been a challenge to feed everyone some days..the kids easier than the husband...
I am thinking the change is going to be gradual as I cannot afford to toss out everything we have int eh pantry and shop vegan..but new stuff coming in is...

(now how to tell the husband I want a new car with no leather inside ..well thats going to have to wait a few years I guess...)

Welcome!

I am with you on the 'baby vegan' thing! how cute! lol

There are some really awesome vegan cookbooks- I just picked up Good Housekeeping's 'Simple Vegan'. The recipes found in there are just that: simple (and easy!).

Good luck with the transition! :-)

I just got Appetite for Reduction and Veganomicon...figured that was a good place to start! Some of the recipes in AfR look sooo yummy!
