Hey everyone,

I am doing research for a natural health publication.

I am after some of your delicious input regarding your personal challenges with veganism

Whatever it is, no area restricted.

What is the challenge?

Have you overcome the challenge? If so, how so?

Do you still need help with it?

What was the result of the challenge?

Articles objective: To demonstrate both difficulty and resolution for each area of concern.

Please feel free to brain storm with me, give me a list of all the difficulties you have faced!!

YOur input is invaluable.

THank YOu!!!

There was not much difficulty for me, I mean for all of the 3 years of vegetarianism I did not consume any milk, or eggs. I would just eat cheese from time to time, and about two months ago I decided to stop and go fully Vegan along with cutting the consumption of refined sugars, etc. The only thing that might be hard is the prices of food , but again with my exercise schedule (which is riding my bike eight miles a day) my stomach has shrunk and I do not eat as much. So the little good food that I buy lasts for a few days. And I feel better than ever =) Do not know if this is of much help but there you go.

I had a little trouble getting enough protein while I was pregnant without resorting to eggs, but peanut butter and tofu smoothies fixed that.

Heyyy don't look at me like that. It was nutritionist-approved!

life's not a paragraph
and death i think is no paranthesis

No problem cutting out meat. Dairy produts are hard though. Huge fan of cheese. I don't buy it myself anymore but I still eat it when I go out. I'm a veg who is going to be vegan... eventually.

I'm a knitter, and all of the most wonderful yarns are animal fiber. If I had my own alpacas/goats/sheep, I would use their wool but I don't, so no animal fibers for me, unless I decide to spin some of the undercoat of my Pyr.
