    Alot of the Recipes are just like normal recipes with a healthier touch , looks as delicious, tastes as delicious and you wouldn’t even know that they are extremely healthy and good for you. Its quite deceptive. Some people looking at Vegetarian Meals think all too healthy or you must be a health freak. I am not a vegetarian but have recently tried several recipes that are just as good and better and I just love the alternative burger patties recipes. I never thought tabouli and the likes could be so creatuve ina main meal. Really enjoying experimenting with Vegetarain products in my daily cooking.

  2. Kristy Dekker says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan is watching everyone else eat really yummy looking dishes at restaurants and not having enough choice yourself!

  3. sarah says:

    when they unnecessarily put meat products in the mashed potatoes! or shredded cheese in salad

  4. Anon says:

    The hardest part about being vegan? Just eating out with friends. When I’m in my own bubble it’s very easy to manage.

  5. Bobbi says:

    The hardest thing about being a vegan… Trying to convince my loved ones that I’m not slowly starving myself to death via malnutrition. MY NUTRIENTS ARE JUST FINE!! 🙂

  6. Kelly says:

    The hardest part about being a vegan is going to non-vegan restaurants (especially for brunch).

  7. Alison says:

    The hardest part is judgement from people around me, I don’t know any other vegans!

  8. Gowri says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is having to read labels to be absolutely sure crap didn’t sneak in!

  9. Brandon Garvin says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is raising awareness for animal rights, and promoting better eating habits, while trying to not sound like the stereotypical vegan/vegetarian extremist. I don’t want to shove my opinions, and the facts about “normal” foods down other people’s throats, but at the same time, I feel people should know about (or should WANT to know about) what goes into the food they eat. The best way to teach is by example, and not by force.

  10. Jenny says:

    The hardest part about being vegan for me is understanding why those around me who have learned about health and animal welfare through me still continue to eat meat. I just don’t get it 🙁

  11. Ethan says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is listening to other vegans complain about how hard it is.

  12. Marlena Griffin says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is finding so few (if any!) options in restaurants.

  13. Keira says:

    For me, the hardest part is availability of healthy vegan food options. Restaurants are getting more on board with offering vegan (or at least vegetarian) selections, but only in larger urban areas. Finding convenient food while traveling is almost impossible.

  14. MacKenzie H. says:

    The hardest part? Eating out. Even if the restaurant has a vegetarian option, it almost always has cheese.

  15. alex says:

    no clear labeling

  16. Alex says:

    why are there traces of wheat or dairy in everything???

  17. Melissa M. says:

    The hardest part of being vegan is getting the people in my life to be understanding. My husband is tolerant, but my mom thinks I’m being extreme…

  18. Amanda says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is not having a bunch of “convenience foods” available for when I’m feeling lazy. The food I make tastes a million times better anyway.

  19. Claudia says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is dining out. It’s so difficult to find a place that will accommodate a vegan diet without giving advance notice!

  20. April says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is going out to eat at restaurants.

  21. Chelsea says:

    The hardest part is me is finding substitutes for the foods I loved before going vegan, so that I can resist the cravings. I’m new to veganism, and even though I made a gradual change every day is a struggle.

  22. Anthony says:

    The hardest part about being vegan, aside from ignorant omnivores, is that companies will use wording to disguise animal ingredients on packaging. Without googling “VitaminXYZ”, you’d never know it was some obscure acid that came from an animal’s spinal chord. My explanation was extremely vague, but I’ve met many vegans who feel the same way.

  23. Andre M says:

    The hardest thing about being a vegan is hamburgers. Still. 🙁

  24. Jarrett says:

    The hardest thing about being a vegan is actually becoming one.

  25. Andy P. says:

    the hardest part about being vegan is going out to eat with non-vegans

  26. Quinn says:

    definitely eating out with other people. It’s so hard to go out and find vegan foods at cafes in small towns. Like seriously? I’d rather eat a whole watermelon than your orange and almond tart

  27. Kayla says:

    The hardest thing about being a vegan is dealing with relatives and friends who even after 6 years of this diet, still make fun of me and do not understand how I am still alive.

  28. Kielecia says:

    The hardest part is trying to explain why you don’t eat meat to other people. It is ok if they are willing to be open-minded, but that isn’t very often. Especially in the southern USA where I live.

So, what do you think ?
