Welcome to the March Newsletter.  I am delighted that people increasingly want to eat fewer animals.  If you are one of these individuals, congratulations.  And, if you REALLY want to make a positive change in your life, ditch the dairy . . .  the sooner the better!  Dairy is often the last thing people eliminate when changing to a healthier vegan diet and I find this unfortunate.  Eliminating dairy from my diet has been beneficial in so many areas of my health and absolutely wonderful for my digestion.       

If you want to eat vegan, but are afraid (many are) that you can never give up diary cheese,  have I got a book for you!  It's Vegetarian to Vegan - Give Up Dairy, Give Up Eggs, For Good, by Sarah Taylor with recipes by Mark Reinfeld, (The Vegan Next Door, 2013).  This detailed yet easy to read book will help you get off dairy and eggs permanently.  Even if you aren't vegetarian, I hope you will read this book.  You will have taken a giant step toward realizing a healthier diet and lifestyle.  

Another book every aspiring vegan - and vegan - will find helpful is The Vegan Cheat Sheet, by Amy Cramer and Lisa McComsey (Penguin Group, 2013).  The book offers vegan menu suggestions, quick and tasty recipes, tips for eating at restaurant chains - including food items that are vegan, and even a 21 day vegan transformation section.  The book is loaded with practical advise and information.    
Win the book Vegetarian to Vegan or The Vegan Cheat Sheet.

Win A Book

Veganseatwhat has purchased four copies each of  Vegetarian to Vegan and The Vegan Cheat Sheet. You can win one of these books simply by sharing why you eat a vegan diet, or want to change to a vegan diet.  Every Friday during the month of March we will randomly pick two names drawn from those who have shared their reasons earlier during the week.  To enter simply go to and share why!   You never know who you might inspire AND you have an excellent chance of winning one of two great books.

Love Those Vegan Cookbooks


The Great Vegan Bean Book by Kathy Hester (Fair Winds Press, 2013)

We all know that beans (and all legumes) are packed with nutrients, low fat, high in fiber, and good for us in every way – and yet most of us eat them sporadically and infrequently.  The Great Vegan Bean Book is likely to change that!  This is really a practical, useful book that produces terrific results!  Read More
Vegan Yum-Yum by Lauren Ulm (Health Communications Inc., 2009)

 Vegan Yum-Yum by Lauren Ulm was published in 2009.  I have been happily cooking recipes from this cookbook since buying it in 2010.  What I have enjoyed so much are the excellent sauces with which Lauren surrounds her dishes.  Though many of her recipes do not contain mock-meats, my omnivore friends are always delighted to be served any of the dishes from this cookbook.  Read More

Tofu for Snacking, Cooking, Soups & Salads  

This tofu is easy, tasty and versatile.  To prepare cut a block of super-firm well drained tofu into very small pieces or cubes. Toss the cubes in cornstarch and whatever spices you like (I typically use garlic powder, salt & pepper). Shake off ALL excess cornstarch -VERY IMPORTANT. Fry the tofu in coconut oil until brown on both sides, turning once. Use immediately or refrigerate once cool.  Use cold or warm in the microwave or on a baking sheet in the  oven.

Favorite Ideas - Salad In A Jar

The first time I saw this I was hooked.  It's easy to make, perfect for weekday lunches and helps to reduce food waste.   The layering order is all  you have to remember - always put the dressing on the bottom of the jar and the greens on top.  Do not shake or mix until you are ready to eat the salad.  As long as the dressing does not touch the greens, the salad will stay fresh for five days.  My layers from bottom to top:  tofu dressing, shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, red onion, sunflower seeds, romaine lettuce and baby spinach.  When ready to eat simply shake the jar and plate the salad.  For dressing ideas go to!salad-dressings/c1h3p
