This is going to be a thread for people interested in plant-based diets* or becoming vegan*.

Whether it's just a meal or an entire lifestyle, whether you're already there or are just curious and considering how to increase plants in your diets, you're welcome here.

If you have a nutritional requirement that you would like to meet with a plant based source, we can help each other with recipes and tips. Please however, do not insist on someone "needing" to eat some animal product etc or argue whether it's possible to be healthy on a plant-based diet. Thank you :)

*Definitions:

plant-based diet - eating exclusively or primarily plant-based foods; generally avoiding meat, fish, dairy. People who eat mostly plant-based may eat these animal products sometimes or for some meals. Many people interested in a plant-based diet are doing it for specific health reasons.

vegan - a lifestyle which seeks to minimize suffering for all animals and thus is much broader than eating a certain diet. Vegans tend to not ever compromise on meals. Vegans do not consume animal products, do not wear leather, do not visit zoos, do not support hunting, do not use makeup/household products which are tested on animals etc. Vegans may be motivated by ethics, health or the environmental reasons for avoiding animal products.

Great thread! We’ve needed this one for a long time!

Ok so one of my favorite “treats” to myself are these two magazines, I get them at Barnes & Noble, actually there are more and more plant-based magazines being published all the time. Lots of great recipes, tips, interviews with chefs, and then of course - the gorgeous photos! You can get an online subscription to most, but I like having the print copies.

Chickpea of the Sea recipe

it's a substitute for tuna salad. Needs a couple hours in the fridge for the flavours to develop so make ahead, store in fridge & serve in sandwiches or lettuce wraps. Can also be served with quinoa and vegetables in a tortilla. Or just eat it straight out of the container while standing by the fridge :P

Fits nicely into a 4 cup storage container.

I am so delighted to find this thread and hope that some of us posting will help to bump it to the top of the Active list and entice a few others who are interested in plant-based eating. A year and a half ago I made the switch to approx 90-95% plant based eating "thanks to" a diagnosis of pre-diabetes and continuing high cholesterol. It has made a significant difference - without medication - and now, with my BC diagnosis earlier this year, I feel like I'm well-positioned to bump up my commitment to plant-based eating in order reduce my risk of recurrence. I have a PILE of recipes and favorite blogs and websites and cookbooks and will share. But right now, we've just finished dinner (Bowl Night, so we each made our own bowls - mine heavy on grains/greens/beans/veggies) and it's time to go for an after-dinner walk.

Onward!

Thank you so much for this Moth. I have been meat and dairy free since March (mostly) and my biggest inspiration was Forks Over Knives and Dr. Gregor. I also find listening to podcasts really helpful. I do searches in the podcast app for Gregor of Joel Fuhrman, Joel Kahn, T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn. I also google "best plant based podcasts".

My best purchase was an Instant Pot as far as freezer meals.

Before I head out the door...I made this two days ago and had it for supper last night. It's a vegan nut-based taco filling that is DELICIOUS and tastes very much like burger-based taco filling. My sister asked that I bring a big batch to my niece's wedding potluck taco-bar for all the vegetarians and vegans (myself included). I truly recommend it. Also I recommend the website where I found it - Minimalist Baker. I follow her on Facebook and subscribe to her emails and every one of her recipes I've tried I've loved. I am an amender and an adapter and I never make anything as written, so here's MY version attached. The link for the original recipe is https://minimalistbaker.com/10-minute-raw-vegan-taco-meat/

Moth - thank you. I am not vegan but would love to learn more about it.

I have no doubt that it would be a positive contribution to my life and health..

This is a fav - quinoa, baby beetroot, carrots, radishes and spinach with a citrus dressing. Crunchy, filling and green. Sometimes I add a handful of celery or parsley to it.

Moth, I have never liked slow cookers. I am not a great chef and everything tastes the same. I am also home all day so I don't need the slow cooking. With the instant pot I make about a week's worth of steel cut oats (2 cups oats, 5 cups water, cinnamon, bit of maple syrup. I also use cut up dates sometimes or a bit of nut butter) set for 2 minutes and wait for auto release. I nuke a bowl of the oats with water, frozen berries and a scoop of ground flax, chia and hemp seeds every day with a bit of almond milk.

I always have servings of soup in the freezer made with beans, veg or whatever. And I have single servings of some kind of wild rice blend or quinoa dish. With those I usually add cubes of sweet potatoes and lots of beans, lots of spices, veg broth and veg. I am always looking for recipes and watch youtube demos. The Instant pot is really easy to clean. I have the 6 qt because I don't have a lot of counter space and store it in the pantry. I love that I can just toss things in and turn it on.

Thank you so much for taking the time with your original post. It is so helpful and has me enthusiastic again to stick to this.

Hi everyone!

Wonderful recipes! That vegan taco meat looks yummy. Walnuts! Who knew!

Great ideas about the Instapot as well. You’ve got me thinking!

A little bit about my vegan style- Lately I haven’t been eating any beans, grains (maybe one serving a week of either quinoa, rice or a tiny portion of pasta) and no bread. So I’ve been focusing on organic whole fruits and veggies, but I do eat soy and sometimes a gardien product as well. For fruits, I focus on green apples and berries. Grapefruit occasionally. Dark chocolate is ok. Many of my meals are raw which I like. One of my favorite dishes is Broccoli with olive oil and lemon. Place cut up raw organic broccoli on a foil lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pep, bake at 415 until browned or desired tenderness. After remove from oven, grate lemon zest over the broccoli then squeeze some lemon juice as well. Even the kids like this one. I find that Pinterest is great for recipes.

Besides the food I eat, I also live a vegan lifestyle. No leather here. Most of my products like soap and shampoos are organic and vegan as well. And I support those business that do not do animal testing.

Here’s another great vegan- Kris Carr. Her book was an inspiration to me. Here’s her website: https://kriscarr.com/

I’m currently reading the Plant Paradox.

When friends ask- Why don’t you drink milk?

https://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2007nl/mar/milk.htm

“Dairy foods increase growth hormones: In addition to calories and nutrients to support growth, cow's milk increases hormones that directly stimulate the growth of the calf. The most powerful of these hormones is called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). When cow's milk is fed to people, IGF-1 levels also increase. Studies funded by the dairy industry show a 10% increase in IGF-1 levels in adolescent girls from one pint daily and the same 10% increase for postmenopausal women from 3 servings per day of nonfat milk or 1% milk.4,5 This rise in IGF-1 level is an important reason for the "bone-building" effects of cow's milk.

Dairy Foods Raise Estrogen: The message that estrogen builds fracture-resistant bones (prevents osteoporosis) has been hammered into women's minds over the past 4 decades by the pharmaceutical industry, selling HRT formulas, such as Premarin and Prempro. Food also raises estrogen levels in a person's body—and dairy foods account for about 60 to 70% of the estrogen that comes from food.8 The main source of this estrogen is the modern factory farming practice of continuously milking cows throughout pregnancy.8,9 As gestation progresses the estrogen content of milk increases from 15 pg/ml to 1000 pg/ml.”

Roa’s marinara sauce is good I think. I find that most marinara sauces have few ingredients.

One salad dressing that I make often- tahini, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh lemon juice, and sumac. Mix together. You can always add a bit of truvia/stevia if too lemony.

I love this ranch dressing:
