  1. I find with starting if I got issue not feeling full using pasta rice or potatoes with your dinners n adding water chestnuts to salads n dishes fill you also .I remember making vegan chilly con carny 1st time n omg I was sceptical but was so nice I liked it better than the non plant based one

  2. I was vegan for 8 years, turned vegetarian for the past 4 years and now I’m making my way back to being vegan. I just found out in February that wine is NOT vegan unless stated by the company! I since found a company that has all vegan wine. I didn’t beat myself up for not researching how wine is made. It can be discouraging but you have to keep moving forward. A hidden ingredient being consumed every now and then doesn’t compare to eating them everyday all day! Thank you for this video ❤️

  3. After six and a half years living in Korea and practicing cooking with local ingredients and cuisine, I've finally succeeded in going plant based. I could not imagine remotely enjoying plant based meals without Korean food in my arsenal. (Side note, while the supermarkets here make Korea a gold mine for affordable and delicious vegan cooking at home, unfortunately it is near impossible to find meatless food when eating out in Korea. Fish sauce and/or beef broth are in basically everything.)

  4. What i hate about meat free diets is people constantly trying to make meat free dishes to replace meat lasagna and pork ribs and chicken nuggets. The beauty of meat free diets is eating foods you never ate before. I would rather have vegan chickpea curry over a fake beef hamburger. Eventually if you are eating right, you will not crave cheesy beef lasagna.

  5. Just wondering – if you accidentally buy food that isn't vegan, what do you normally do? Give it to someone who would eat it? Throw it out? Eat it anyway as you've already bought it?

    I keep wondering what to do in those scenarios. I think I try to give it to someone who would've eaten it anyway first, and if that's impossible for whatever reason, I try to eat it because from an environmental perspective food waste is bad. Does that make sense? Would love some thoughts on this

  6. I am stuck with my weird cravings. I miss fish and shrimp more than anything since I grew up eating a lot of seafood. Also, my mom cooked primarily meaty foods growing up and the only recipes I have from her are not vegan friendly. Since she died, I am still super nostalgic about her cooking. It is a bummer.

  7. Any advice for being vegan at a young age , your still growing so nutrients like B12 how is that accessible on foods than pills would love to know !! I’m new and am doing my research on veganism before getting in to it loving it so far but worried about the decreased nutrients ??

  8. Vegan eating is a delicious adventure. I can't get my family to go 100% vegan, but they only eat 2 or 3 small servings of meat per week. They love my cooking so eating mostly vegan meals doesn't feel like a compromise for them. I also bring vegan dishes to dinners with family and friends, and share recipes – maybe I influence others. I can live within my values much easier because I'm accommodating to my families preferences and make it fun for them.

  9. 1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. 2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
    Romans 14:1‭-‬3

    10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
    Matthew 15:10‭-‬11
