Beginning My Vegan Journey

Valentine529 | Mar 23, 201205:30 PM     14

Hi Chowhounders!

I have decided to become vegan due to my love of animals. I also hope to reduce my family's carbon footprint. This is going to be a huge change for me, but I am committed. I would like to make my own tofu, seitan, and other fake meats.

I have a 3 year old daughter, so I need to be certain that our diet is nutritionally sound as far a protein, iron, and B vitamins. My husband is ok with whatever I decide to cook as long as it tastes good. I am in charge of feeding my little family, and I think that this is a great idea for our health as well as for the planet Earth.

I would appreciate any advice as far as recipes for preparing the fake meats, tofu, and seitan from scratch. I would also appreciate any advice as far as keeping our vegan diet nutritionally sound. Any and all comments on this subject are welcome!!!

Thanks in advance!!!!
