Hard Time Being Vegan :/

Okay so i've been vegan for about a week and half (maybe a little longer) and i'm having a hard time... The first week was easy but as soon the second week started I had a hard time. My family only goes grocery shopping twice a week and we have a really big family (and everyone eats all the time!) So it's hard to find food in my house that's vegan all I can find are eggs and bread and i'm not eating eggs! Anyway I also keep forgetting what's vegan and what's not I always forget the margarine/butter isn't vegan and I can't eat anything in my house! What am I suppose to eat and what should I put on the grocery list? I'm only 13 so I don't buy the food my parents do.... But I really want to stay vegan so I can help the animals! I also can't stay full I'm always hungry because I can't find any food to keep me full

I'm in my 30s and I'm not much of a cook, either! I stick to very easy recipes and ready-to-eat foods. Here are a few quick and easy ideas:

- Cereal (many are vegan!) with soy milk and a sliced banana

- Salad made of greens, carrots, onion, tomato with dressing (most Italian and balsamic vinaigrette dressings are vegan)

- Microwave meals: Try Amy's brand or Boca if you have it in Canada. Your grocery store might have a vegetarian freezer section with vegan frozen food! Also look for "steam in the bag" veggies that you can cook in the microwave. Sprinkle some seasoning on top, add a bit of vegan margarine and you'be got a tasty side dish.

- Black beans (canned, just heat in a pot on the stove) with rice (I buy the microwave rice pouches that cook in 90 seconds!)

- Dried, frozen, or canned fruit for snacks.

I hope this helps! Please let us know how you're doing!
