For my new years resolution I've decided to take my vegetarianism to the next step. What are some of your favorite vegan products? I'm going to Whole Foods or possibly Trader Joes tomorrow.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

At Whole Foods you can make your own PB. Is it any better than regular PB?</div>

Not sure, I like a kind from a local farm here that grows the peanuts and grinds it on the spot, it's deliiiiiiciouuuus.

If we're just choosing one, refried pinto beans.

Rolled Oats.<br>
Good protein, fiber, and B1 source. Can be eaten dry as a snack, cooked as oatmeal, used to thicken up stew, chilli, curry, etc., and can be used in baking. Softer than most whole grains and cheap in quantity.<br><br>
As for the in-store ground peanut butter, yes its better. Not only does it not have the trans fats, added sugar, etc. but you can see the peanuts before theyre ground. Most people dont realize how significant that is, jar peanut butter is made from peanuts too damaged and moldy to be sold in jars. On the rare occasion the government bothers to test food quality jar peanut butter routinely is found to have more mold than is legally allowed- and peanut mold is a known cause of cancer.<br>
Even aside from all of that I still find it better because it doesnt feel as greasy and over-processed as the jar stuff. Added trans and saturated fat is supposedly added to jars to improve 'mouth feel', whatever 'improved mouth feel' means must have been defined by someone who likes to eat axle grease.

Gardein - everything except the turkey.<br>
Field Roast - Celebration Roast & Apple sausages.<br>
Daiya cheese.<br>
Vegenaise.<br>
Hormel Vegetarian Chili. Not that it's that spectacular, but it's good, cheap, easy.<br>
Tofurky - Roasts and Deli slices.<br>
Riblets.<br>
So Delicious Purely Decadent.<br>
Boca chicken patties.<br><br>
A lot of this is cheaper at normal grocery stores, rather than WF.

Chia pudding (chia seed,almond milk,fresh fruit,stevia), persimmons, lotus root, raw bread from LoveForce. There's many more, but these were the first to pop into my mind.<br><br>

Chia seeds - I eat these daily and add them to my smoothies among other things.<br><br>
Brussels sprouts and beets - I eat these at least twice a week. So good!<br><br>
Gluten free grains - These are amazing cuz they are so cheap. 1lb of organic millet at my Whole Foods is only 1.69 and when you cook it, it triples in size. Quiona and brown rice are great too.<br><br>
Beans - Also very cheap. I cook a cup of beans and mix them with a cup of cooked grains and use that as a base of a salad.<br><br>
Steas unsweetened lemon green tea - My favorite store bought drink. It's basically just brewed green tea with some lemon juice. So good. They have other great flavors but they're sweetened, I just prefer the unsweetened variety.<br><br><br>
There is a Whole Foods in Chicago where you can grind your own peanut butter.

Thank you for all of the ideas! Chia seeds... hm. I have never heard of them. I'll look for them at the store!
