im trying to become a vegetarian. any advice on foods and stuff.
hey No_Justice! awesome that you are willing to take a stand for the animals, the earth, and your health!!! check out the following: http://www.vegan.org/going_vegan/eating ... index.html http://www.tryveg.com/cfi/toc/?v=06making http://www.vegan-food.net/ also there are a ton of veg friendly places to eat out at in the NY area..and a ton of vegan social actives and pot lucks there as well. if you want any more in depth info, PM me.
These may help (all vegan) http://www.vegansociety.com/newsroom/in ... gin/faqs/3 http://www.theppk.com/ http://www.vegweb.com/ http://www.vegblogs.com/ Basically, it's cheap and easy to eat a healthy balanced non-animal diet (I've been doing it for 26+ years) - just include plenty of fruit and veg, some beans / grains / nuts / rice / pasta / bread / tofu or similar protein, lots of herbs and spices, a small delicious but not necessarily nutritious daily treat, a big dollop of creativity and a willingness to get dirty, play and learn as you go along. You may not end up with a fully edible result every time, but you'll be wiser. Try getting hold of 'Soy Not Oi!' for a total punkrock cooking experience! Also worth checking out are the vegan books from Microcosm, particularly 'Please Don't Feed The Bears' and 'Hot Damn & Hell Yeah / The Dirty South'. Have fun!
how could i forget the Post Punk Kitchen!??! : http://theppk.com/ and here is a PDF zine from zine library .info: http://zinelibrary.info/files/vegetarianism.pdf you could always check out the cookbooks 'Soy Not Oi!' ( http://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/title/187/ )and 'Please Don't Feed the Bears' ( http://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/books/1785/ ) and maybe even get copies through your local library.
hahaha theoldpunk and i think alike! you beat me to it!
alright thanks guys, ill check all of them out. Also many of the tofu recipes include nutritional yeast, ive only been able to find normal yeast is there any difference?
There's a big difference between nutritional yeast flakes and ordinary yeast. You can't use one instead of the other You should be able to find nutritional yeast flakes in wholefood / healthfood stores. Some bulk food stores may also have it in bins so you can weigh your own. In the US I think the main brand is known as Red Star.
alright, thanks man
sweet beans this shit helps me out a ton thanks for puttin time into this
kool man im afraid thats not sumthing im rely a part of but fight for it and stay strong
If you are serious about animal rights skip the vegetarian part and go vegan! It's easy, and eventually you will become a compulsive label reader. Here's some good resources: http://veganfreak.com/ (look out for the second edition of their book which is due out soon, they also put on an excellent podcast, the earlier ones have some awesome music like Nausea, antischism etc) http://altveg.blogspot.com/ ( the blog of Dino Sarmani, the author of 'Alternative Vegan' which is an excellent book if you are wanting cheap meals) Also check out these books: Introduction to Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog by Gary Francione Making A Killing: The Political Economy of Animal Rights by Bob Torres. Cheers.
