So I just found that they're running a 21-Day Kickstart to Veganism starting on April 4. Great timing since I'm just starting the process of transitioning from an omnivore diet to a vegan diet. I'll be signing up for this Kickstart program. I like the fact that Dr. Barnard seems to focus more on real food and less on processed food.<br><br>
Anyhow, here's the link:<br><a href="http://pcrm.org/kickstartHome/" target="_blank">http://pcrm.org/kickstartHome/</a><br><br>
Anyone else planning to join?

Hi! Well, I've been vegan for a few months, vegetarian for a few years. But I could still help you if you have any problems! By the way, congratulations on the cruelty-free choice!

I guess I'll try because I'm already slowly transitioning into veganism. But I guess tomorrow will be the day I'll kick it up a notch!

I'm very happy to have company! I've got my grocery list and I'm heading out to the store in an hour or so. Looking forward to the carrot and red pepper soup for lunch tomorrow.

Just got back from the grocery store. I spent $127 and walked out with 4 big bags of food. It took a long time to shop because I'm learning to shop a new way and so I had to read the labels on everything I bought that wasn't produce! I'm sure it will get faster as I get to know the products.

Hey all! I've been slowly transitioning to turning vegan and just discovered this website! I'm very excited and am starting the 21 day challenge (one day late). I hope we all have success. I've also been reading a lot of books on Vegan lifestyles; here are two I've found interesting:<br>
Vegan in 30 days: Get healthy. Save the World. --Sarah Taylor<br>
Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant Based Diet -Brenda Davis<br>
Good luck and thanks for the 21 day start hookup!

Odd. I just started my vegan die today and knew nothing about this, but I am doing it for only one week as a test run. Good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

On the downside it took me almost an hour to make lunch. On the upside, I can freeze the rest of the soup. Plus my lunch looks like this.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/67/67bc928c_vbattach15131.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/67/525x525px-LL-67bc928c_vbattach15131.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:394px;"></a>

Yay, first day of the challenge.<br><br>
I had my oatmeal this morning and everything all day has been vegan. I found myself hungry more often and I'm feeling a little sick (like light headed sick). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:">

I'm not surprised you were hungry. For me, the meal plan as designed just wasn't enough calories. I added in a couple of snacks with fruit, raw almonds, etc.

Yeah, I'm not going to follow the meal plan anymore. I'll continue on the vegan lifestyle but I just won't follow the menu.
