Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I'm currently Vegetarian and have been one for a year, but i want to go Vegan! Yay! aha, anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for me and if there was anything that Vegans can't eat or use or anything that people don't normally think of. I hope that made sense ahah.
Also to keep up my Calcium and stuff like that, what are the best Vegan foods to eat? (I'm 15)
Thank you so muchh!! (:
If you go for strict vegan,
You can not use , TOOTH paste which contains Fish/calcium
NO leather items, Shoes, bags, belts..etc
No to Ice creams, Cakes, Bread items... they have Eggs
You can take Drumstick ,Green leaves, papaya, ..
Below you’ll find a list of 11 vegetables and the amount of calcium you can expect in a general serving size.
Cooked, a cup of soybeans can offer a whopping 175 mg of calcium to your diet. These veggies can be used in a wide variety of dishes.
A cup of cooked Okra delivers 172 mg and is great fried, boiled, or served alongside pretty much any meat.
One ounce of almonds (23 nuts) has 75 mg. Enjoy by the handful or in your favorite salads. You can even sprinkle them on chicken while it’s being cooked to infuse your whole dish with almond-y goodness!
A cup of boiled collard greens has 266 mg, and have much the same function in cooking as lettuce. Try substituting collard greens for lettuce the next time you can, and you’ll be getting your calcium!
A half-cup of oranges contains 52 mg and is, as you'd expect, delicious in almost anything from salads to fruit bowls.
A cup of boiled spinach has 245 mg. It makes a great side dish for many meals, and in its raw form can be substituted for lettuce on sandwiches and in salads.
One cup of raw kelp has 136 mg. While eating seaweed doesn’t immediately present itself as a normal thing to do, those in the know have discovered that this surprisingly flavorful vegetable is high in a variety of nutrients, including calcium.
Two cups of boiled broccoli have 124 mg. Fairly common vegetable, but rarely praised for its high concentration of useful nutrients like calcium, broccoli has recently come into vogue as a wonderful food with all kinds of health benefits.
One tablespoon has about 137 mg. By using blackstrap molasses to bake certain kinds of bittersweet foods, you can take advantage of its high concentration of calcium.
A quarter cup of sesame seeds has 351 mg calcium, and are delicious when sprinkled on chicken, fish, or just by the handful.
Two ounces of Brazil nuts (12 nuts) have 90 mg. In addition to the expected protein, Brazil nuts in particular are high in calcium and can be added to salads or main dishes, or just enjoyed by the handful.
Two cups of raw celery have 81 mg. By combining celery with peanut butter, you can indulge in a delicious, flavorful snack that helps fill your daily quota of calcium and protein.
Vegetables rarely are seen in connection with nutrients like calcium, especially with the overwhelming popularity of milk in this regard. However, for those who don't like milk, are lactose intolerant, or are simply looking for a different way to get their daily nutrients, these vegetables and others are a good place to start.
I'm a vegan, I can still eat ice cream, cakes and bread as long as it's vegan. We had ice cream, cakes and bread Vegan who doesn't use animal milk and eggs. Although more expensive than the product is not vegan, but it is more loving to animals, I think :)
And we also can make vegan cakes and bread our own, some friends have posted some vegan recipes here, and we can also look it up online^^
Veronica, If you are not taking Eggs and having Bread and cake, I wonder if you know how bread and cakes prepared they have eggs, 1 Kg cake may contain 15-20 eggs.
i have seen some vegans in India prepare cakes with out Eggs, but not all same case for bread for softness aand smell they will add eggs in Bread.
these may be good for vegans who eggs and milk.
I like to tell the daily use Toilet Soup having Animal fat see the content TFM which is animal fat.
I've never had a problem with finding bread that was vegan. And I also eat cake and have vegan ice cream.
There are lots of recipes for vegan desserts and breads online so I make a lot of yummy vegan cakes and cookies and all kinds of things. There's no reason to miss out on the good things in life :)
Here's quite an info!
There are a ton of breads out there that are vegan (at least in the UK). In fact, most of the bread at my local shop (Sainsburys) is vegan with exception to a few products such as milk roll, all-butter croissants, etc.
Are lamp chops come from sheep that that grow wools? How do they handle the redundant and unproductive sheep?
Well you have to start to read a lot of labels !! All of them. lol It's amazing where you find stuff !
Stock up on some nutritional yeast, quinoa, wall nuts, sesame seeds, and pine nuts and get looking on the intnet for great recipes, there's loads of them.
Here's one of my favourites. ;) ................. vegan icr cream
Take some very ripe bananas slice them and freeze them.
Next day take them out, add, some coconut milk, (I put a vailla soya desert in too),
.... Put it in the blender, last minute a drop of strawberry jam..
... and eat, it's to die for. ;)
yooo Yuuumy Ice cream,,,,,
There are a variety of ways one can enjoy vegan foods. I prefer a very unrefined and strict diet. However, you can be more liberal if you chose consuming fake meats, cheeses, and many more things. The greatest difficult you will have is cessation of dairy products; the reason being their chemical addictive properties. Make no mistake, dairy is addictive due to the naturally present "Casomorphines". These are molecularily identical to opium and the source of cheese cravings. The concentration is far less thank god, but my withdrawal was one month or so. Keep that in mind when you quit Bek.
Something you want to avoid: gelatin. Gelatin will be in gummy candies like gummy worms and peach rings, puddings, jello (obviously, heehee), yogurt, marshmallows, energy bars, Altoids, other mints, some gums, some cereals, all Poptarts, Skittles, some frozen vegetables, and there are so many other processed foods that I could go on for days. Just read the package to see if there is gelatin as by law they are obligated to list it. Fortunately, as a vegan you would avoid a lot of products that have gelatin in them, like processed baked goods. The remainder is conveniently a list of things made of mostly foods that you probably should not being eating in the first place! c; Anyways, good luck! I'll be going vegan eventually as well.
