Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

I have recently helped a coworker go vegetarian. I perused the "starter
kits" out there before I settled on material to give to her.

I think Vegan Outreach has the best "vegan starter kit" ( just add milk
and eggs ). It has the most down to earth philosophy and it tells the
reader what s/he should know about nutrtion. I just did not see that in
the other starter kits.

Its free, you can read it online, you can download it as a pdf, or they
will mail you a print copy for free.

It takes about an hour to read but it will pay you back in a lot of
avoided mistakes:

If you don't read it, just head this one warning. Many new lacto-ova
vegetarians replace meat with milk and end up getting an iron deficency
......milk has next to no iron in it.

Hi, Matt:

Several months ago I made the change from vegetarian to vegan. I had
convinced myself that it would be really hard, but it was actually
very easy. I don't miss dairy and eggs at all because there are so
many terrific soy substitutes.

Best of luck.

I just recieved it in the mail! Wow, that was a lot faster than the
vegetarian starter kit. I've got it on my fridge. It's cool.

and in the case of vegans, while it's advised (obviously) you get your
vitamins & minerals from as many whole food sources as possible, this is one
case where a supplement may help out. i'm near anemic so I have to take an
iron supplement, especially before times I donate blood. i get ferrous
gluconate tablets from National Vitamin Company (they're a california outfit
but they have a factory here, so a lot of their product is pretty fresh).

Great Matt, I am happy for you man. If you need any advice, I'd be willing

Thanks for your post and goodluck.
