K-Town Vegans Message Board › Recipes?

Hi everybody,

As you may know I am new to the group (as well as Tennessee) and also new to the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. I really want to make the switch, but I am struggling to find good tasting and easy to prepare recipes. I could also use pointers on grocery shopping, menu planning, food preperation and storing, etc. If anyone would be willing to send me recipes or even have me over for a weekly "vegan cookin class", like one night a week, I would REALLY appreciate it. I would even be willing to pay for food and/or your time.

I am willing to help you. I cook vegan from scratch, have 3 freezers full of vegan foods and supplies. Vegan since 1997. I cook vegans meals with friends and relatives, actually tmrw to help two interested people get started. My husband and I live in Louisville. Is there a way to exchange phone numbers or emails without exposing to world?

One or two good cookbooks can really help in getting started, here are some recommendations (not necessarily available locally, but definitely available online - try Amazon):
- Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz - this was my first vegan cookbook and continues to be one of my standards
- The 30 Minute Vegan by Mark Reifeld and Jennifer Murray
- Vegan Handbook published by the Vegetarian Resource Group - an excellent resource!

I am actually fairly new to veganism as well. I became a vegan in March of this year and have found it a bit challenging too.
One of the most difficult parts of your transition is doing research. People can show you how to cook a meal, but it is essential to know what to incorporate into your diet. Here is where some good reading comes in handy. I see that Kevin has made some suggestions on different books to read. I quite like the suggestions and wanted you to know that you can find many (if not all) of them at Three Rivers Market co-op on Broadway in North Knoxville. I work at Three Rivers and not only do we have a nice, but small selection, of books but our store carries local and organic foods and does cater to vegetarians and vegans.
I am still trying to learn a lot about the different foods I should incorporate into my diet, new recipes and foods to try, etc.
Although I won't be able to offer as much advice as some of the seasoned vegans, I would be happy to give you a start & certainly learn some things along the way myself.
