    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    I like sprouting puy lentils. I have a plastic sprouter with drainage holes, but sometimes I don't bother with it because it seems I always make a lot that way and don't always get through them,...

    I liked the healthy weightloss page, particularly how they suggest soya ice cream or sorbet instead of dairy ;)

    Re: Cheap Foods
