Hello,<br><br><br><br>
My first piece of advice would be to get yourself some cookbooks! Any good bookstore like Barnes & Noble or Border's should have tons of vegetarian cookbooks! In Border's (where I got most of mine) their cookbooks usually make it to the sales rack pretty fast, and they are excellent! They always have specifically veggie ones, and with easy recipies and nice pictures. Others can probably recommend better cookbooks such as the "How It All Vegan" series, and a few others I am not familiar with. If you want more cookbook ideas, go to <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com" target="_blank">www.amazon.com</a> and do a search. You can probably type in "low fat vegan vegetarian cooking" or something similar and get a lot of results.<br><br><br><br>
A good website for some free veggie recipies is <a href="http://www.vegsource.com/" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
VeggieBoards also has a recipe section.<br><br><br><br>
Also try typing "low fat vegetarian recipies" into Google and see what you come up with.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck!

Agreed. Learn to cook. Being vegetarian isnt about limiting your diet, its about expanding it. Eat healthy, as in stuff from the ground. Avoid processed foods and industrial foods. Also take some time and go to some good veg restaurants, get some ideas for food then try to mimic it at home. And.... if you have the time, get a job for a wile workin in a veg kitchen or working in an ashram or something similar where you can learn from others how its done.

Being a vegetarian, you must experiment with different recipes and especially different cuisines or you may get bored of having the same bland food. Countries like Italy and India that have a good majority of vegetarians have a treasure trove of recipes to try out. Hence, try googling their food.<br>

This thread is from 2006 and the original poster only has that one post. I don't think she'll be reading any of this advice.<br><br>
Jernord, you seem to be posting in a lot of really old threads. It's totally fine if you want to resurrect a topic of discussion on purpose, but these advice threads are pretty much dead. There are plenty of recent posters asking for advice too!
