    Re: Vegan Intervention Needed

    I feel the same way here, but it can be difficult to overcome a physical craving using only mental techniques. It sometimes helps in this situation to look for the most similar vegan item available,...
  2. Re: Want to know how much nutrition you're getting?

    What I like about this site is the way it tells us about all the nutrients. There are so many vitamins and minerals that are not listed on food labels and this helps us know what is truly in the...

    Re: Anyone else have this problem?

    Whenever there is cooked animal flesh nearby, I notice more than just a bad smell. I feel an unpleasant taste in my mouth, an upset stomach, and difficulty breathing. I have been this way at least as...

    Re: Soy - how much is too much?

    If you like these soy products and are not physically bothered by them, I would not worry about eating too much of them. There is no evidence that soy products are harmful to the overall population,...

    Re: The Flu Shot. Curious about some opinions...

    Those who are vulnerable or spend time with vulnerable people really should get the shot. Although this might slightly increase the use of animals, it could save human lives. I think vegans are...

    Re: Obesity in U.S.

    That is a really good point. I think the reason for the discrepancy is that food, even unhealthy food, is seen as a necessity, while cigarettes are seen as a recreational device. Maybe when people...

    Re: Obesity in U.S.

    Sadly, this is true. In a neverending quest to increase sales and profits, the food industry has used "flavor enhancers," like MSG, that literally affect the way people think and make them eat more....

    Re: Favorite vegan breakfast?

    Back when I did eat breakfast, it was usually something simple, like a bagel or rice cakes. That is boring, I know, but dinner has always been my full, interesting meal.
  12. Re: My mom still doesn't understand vegan and organic...

    Poll: Re: Going vegan - was it easy for you?

    I became lacto-ovo-veggie about 16 months before turning vegan. It seemed so difficult at the time, even though I had always been uneasy with the concept of eating flesh. Animal by-products were...

    Re: Soy Report Card

    This should not be surprising, since they are owned by Dean Foods, America's largest dairy company.

    Fortunately, most of my favorite brands are rated 4/5, above average. That is comforting.
