I'm trying to go vegan but it's hard for me with my Greek yogurt addiction.My dad is doing low-carb so he is eating cheese a little more then usual.When I visit my mother's (who I will have to live with for a month or two when school starts) my sister talks about how healthy hamburgers are:confused:.But I'm doing this even if no one supports me in my family.Because I know on here there are people who are very encouraging and wonderful.


PS Some low carb recipes would be wonderful.So I could cook for my father.smiley.gif

Congratulations on going vegan! You can do it! carrot.gif

Here are some tasty looking low carb recipes: http://www.vegangela.com/tag/low-carb/

Also for greek yogurt if they have it in your area So Delicious has Greek style cultured almond milk that looks really tasty: http://www.sodeliciousdairyfree.com/products/cultured-almond-milk

I've also heard that you can strain regular vegan yogurt to give it that thicker consistency.

Hey congrats on the decision. It will be the best decision you ever make for both your soul and body.

Hamburgers? Healthy? Seriously never listen to people who have not done any sort of research. Fair enough a meat eater who knows something about nutrition but from my experience vegans know a he'll of a lot more about nutrition than your average person.

My sister acts like she knows everything about nutrition when we talk about food (which I try to avoid). She lives off instant mash potatoes and box macaroni and cheese.I'm the "health nut" in my family.My sister should eat some greens!

My mother makes this appetizer with those little squares of pumpernickel bread, some peanut butter, a slice of cucumber, and a shake of Jane's Crazy Mixed-up Salt. Sounds weird but it tastes good.

Anyway, she asked my brother to retrieve the cucumber from the fridge and he returned with a zucchini not knowing the difference. I'm like, "Seriously, you need to eat more vegetables."
