In Reply to: How to turn Veg with no money or cooking skills... posted by Daniela on October 26, 2011 at 3:05 pm:

1. You can get enough iron in a veg diet but I'm no expert so you can probably get information from Bryanna, she's well versed on how to get nutrients.

2. About the cooking thing, bottom line is, if you want to eat healthy, you pretty much have to do some cooking. That's just a decision you have to make. I can tell you that eating in restaurants all the time is a pretty unhealthy way to eat, and expensive too. Cooking doesn't have to be fancy, though, you can get a crockpot, for example, saute some onions, throw them into the crockpot with several other ingredients, turn the crockpot to "low" and run off to work. Eight hours later you will have a lovely chili or other dish to eat and leftovers can go a day or so more. You can just cut up a bunch of whatever veggies you have on hand and sautee them in a pan, add some rice or potatoes and there's dinner. It can be easy, easy, easy. But it's just a choice that you make and no one can do that for you but you. You can do that or marry some great looking, hunky cook guy like my son, who is a chef at a B&B (only he's already spoken for LOL) or you can just make the choice and learn to do basic cooking.

And, don't forget, you have to eat so I assume you've been doing that somehow, cooking veg food is not in any way more difficult than any other cooking. It's just different ingredients.

3. Veg food isn't necessarily gourmet. Prepackaged vegan food can be expensive but basics like rice, beans, potatoes, vegetables, aren't necessarily expensive, they can be actually very inexpensive. Lentils are a great vegan food and easy to cook, ditto for rice and there are so many varieties.

Everything in life is a choice, we just have to make the ones that make us grow into what we want to be.
