Your parents made you stop? Are they worried about nutrition because if they are, then you can get a lot of information about nutrition on the internet. Hopefully, they'll be Ok with you being vegan if they can be assured that you're meeting your nutritional needs.<br><br><br><br>
But the best sites to checkout are<br><br><a href="http://www.vegetarianteen" target="_blank">www.vegetarianteen</a> - Useful info for teen veggies<br><br><a href="http://www.vegansociety.com" target="_blank">www.vegansociety.com</a> - They have a lot of information sheets, be it B12, calcium, leather, e numbers or pretty much anything relating to veganism.<br><br><a href="http://www.george.bush.isaterrorist.com" target="_blank">www.george.bush.isaterrorist.com</a> - Not related, but I could only think of two sites, and I wanted three, and i wasn't going to put zombo.com for the hundredth time

Danny, um.. I think you have *some* degree of control over what actually gets put in your mouth. I mean, do your parents force feed you cheeseballs?<br><br><br><br>
I never told my mom I was going vegan. She knew I was vegetarian, but I didn't try to explain veganism. I just.. gave up all animal products. I mean, it's not like you have to ask your mom what you can and cannot make for lunch.

Danny - Sorry to hear your parents are so negative. I wish my daughter had your kind of motivation. She is 15 - and at this point could be considered the ANTI-VEGAN.

Unfortunatly, Jelly Bellys contain beesewax and confectioner's glaze (made from insects), so they're not vegan.

You dont know my mother.... So therefore you cant comment on the situation.<br><br>
I have no income, she refused to buy products such as soy milk, tofu etc unless i wasnt vegan. That didnt leave me much to eat, and every meal (even now) she was on my back about eating nothing..<br><br>
She asks why i do it.. and then when i try tell her she says she doesnt want to hear it. All my friends think shes crazy, thats because she is. I really think you should need licences to be parents... because the crazy women in my house would fail...<br><br>
I dont eat animal products as much as i can, but there are a few things she FORCES me to eat...<br><br>
No she doesnt shove them in my mouth, its not like that.. but it always seems like shes the child and im the adult...<br><br>
Yes i have SOME control over what i eat and what i dont, but sometimes she does FORCE me to eat, and it can be very embarrasing....<br><br>
You dont know her, you dont know what shes like so dont be so patronizing towards me.<br><br>

Sorry! I realize now that post was harsh. You're right, I don't know your specific situation.<br><br>
And yea, moms can be a pain in the butt. I know mine could be termed legally insane on many occasions. I hope you'll take my peace offering. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

yeast is a fungus, like mushrooms, molds, mildews, athlete's foot, ringworm, etc. It's a fascinating kingdom.<br><br><br><br>
Is non animal derived gelatin commonly available in stores?

Umm, well in the Uk, supercook does vegetarian gelatin alternative.<br><br><br><br>
However, I dunno about the USA, but look outfor stuff like agar-agar, and try to find a kosher gelatin thingy. Now, chances are that the kosher thing will be isinglass (Fish are paerve, if I'm not mistaken.) However, I think there is a brand out there that produced a gelatin alternative that's vegan as well as being kosher.

No. Not regular stores anyways, maybe a health food store.

There are several gummy gear products in Alberta, Canada that are vegan, so don't dispare.<br><br><br><br>

Don't be too angry at your mother. She may have seen you picking at food or not eating as much as she though you should and it scared her. Sometimes, things that are different scare others. As you get older, you'll be able to make the choices for yourself.<br><br><br><br>
Right now, make the choices that you can. When you're out with friends, you can choose not to have meat then. When you're at a pot luck, you can choose not to have meat then. Veg*ans often say it is a journey, so enjoy *your* journey and live life as best you can. Don't worry about comparing your veganism to others. Be as vegan as your circumstances allow you - even if you only get the chance once a month.<br><br><br><br>
Do the best you can. You can't give more then that.

I heard once that the on honey farms the Queen bee's wings were removed to stop her leaving the beehive and therefore keep the workers there producing honey.

Your best bet would be the asian grocery stores (or asian section of a big supermarket). Look for Agar Agar or Kanten. This is the same thing, seaweed based "gelatin". Kanten is the Japanese name for it. Very popular here in Japan, so it's way easy to find.<br><br><br><br>
Here is an online source (it goes by agar agar here)<br><br><a href="http://www.herbaladvisor.com" target="_blank">www.herbaladvisor.com</a><br><br>

Danny - one thing that I have found out from my 5 year old - no one can make you eat something that you don't want to eat. Period. You're parents can not hold you down and shove the food into your mouth. Not over the long term, anyway.<br><br><br><br>
They can rant and rave. They can withhold your meals. They can make it very difficult, but when push comes to shove, it is your body and they CAN'T MAKE YOU EAT IT! You may be hungry for a little while, but, eventually, they will have to come around.<br><br><br><br>
Keep us informed. BTW, how old are you?<br><br><br><br>
