My biggest success: This may have been when I had friends over for dinner and served Tofu and Spinach Lasagna, cucumber slices drizzled with a balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard mix and Coconut Tapioca Pudding for dessert. (Recipes below or online with this story.) None of it was perfect, but I attribute that to my cooking skills. With a little practice it would make a pretty impressive spread. Although I followed the directions, the tapioca didn't cook enough but the creamy coconut dish has potential so I'll try it again. The "cheese" mixture in the lasagna was as creamy and flavorful as a good ricotta mix and worked well. Next time I'll add some veggies to the lineup for a fuller lasagna

As I continue to learn about going vegan, both in diet and overall lifestyle and consider at least some changes to my habits, it's clear that I am not alone or lacking information and ideas anymore.
Rule No. 1: Breakfast had to be easy, because I am at my least resourceful before my morning coffee. toast is already vegan. That's one down. (Very filling too like a bowl of oatmeal in a pancake, which I guess is exactly what it is.) And a little muesili with almond or coconut milk is perfect for weekends when I don't have to eat in my car.

The week's best dish: My mom got in on the action (moms are so great that way) and made a vegan chocolate cake that was hands down the highlight of the week. I forget how good a made from scratch cake can taste, and this one got rave reviews from friends who weren't even intentionally eating vegan just game to try it out. "Hard to believe it was vegan," was the general consensus. Alcohol is not necessarily vegan. Not by a longshot. Yes, wine is made from grapes. But (and I'm simplifying here) it's made through a process that involves animal products. So is a lot of hard liquor. And my Leinenkugel's HoneyWeiss is not vegan friendly because of the honey. All pieces of the puzzle that ardent vegans educate themselves on.
Oh the things I could write about veganism.

When I put out the call a few weeks ago for recipes, restaurant advice and personal experiences of life on a vegan diet, I figured I'd get a good response. Our readers are always willing to share.
And when it was time to eat, I was very, very hungry. So that leftover eggplant dish maybe wouldn't have been my first choice. (OK, some advice was more helpful than others.)
Chop a small onion, tomato, broccoli, asparagus, or any other vegetable you have on hand ("I love a tablespoon of fresh fennel minced for a new flavor or consider a bit of basil," the reader wrote.)
The day my column ran in print, I fired up my computer to personal stories from readers of why they went vegan and how they make it work in a city like Green Bay, which can be a bit limited in its restaurant options. And even PETA gave a shout out, stirring up more advice and suggestions.
I reached for the half and half before remembering it would be a black coffee week for me. Turns out that's just fine and an easy permanent change.
Turns out, when I'm hungry I'll eat just about anything. I spent a lot of time hungry during Vegan Week, mostly because I'm still learning. For once, I didn't eat out of boredom, because I couldn't just grab the nearest snack. I ate when it was time to eat. That's, of course, a pretty smart way to Air Max 95 New Release
I was hoping Nike Air Max 95 Blue And Pink someone would come through with a pizza recipe, and one reader did. (I also tried this with vegan marinara in place of the sweet potatoes for a more traditional pie.)
This week cut out a lot of the nonessentials. Probably because deep down I truly am lazy. Those Gummi Lifesavers may or may not be vegan. I'm not going to look it up, I just won't bother to eat them. I'm sure eventually I would find lots of snacks that fit the eating plan, but in this case, I think ignorance is bliss. Once again, this isn't a bad thing.
Changing eating habits yields surprising lessons

All I had to do was give it a try.
Dining out is not easy. Many readers lamented the lack of vegan options on local menus. I was successful at Kavarna where the Grilled Portabella Cap is now my favorite. At most other places, I could only request they remove the cheese, dressing, etc., from the menu items. It was disappointing not to be able to order something new and fun and instead have to strip down a menu item to make it appropriate. Veganism is very, very different from vegetarianism. People repeatedly mixed the two up. Luckily, plenty of vegetarian recipes are also vegan, if you strip out the dairy.
Steam the asparagus and broccoli until almost soft but not soggy Put all veggies into a frying pan and saut for a few minutes until they are softened you will be surprised to see how much liquid comes off the onions; add a bit of water if you need more liquid.
Before my column even made it to the Press Gazette Media website, two colleagues editing it had sent me links to websites and Facebook pages filled with daily recipes.
