Re: Re: Martha Stewart Speaks Out

She did a vegan episode awhile back where she had a few different vegan guests. One of her daughters is vegan. She said on the episode that she would start including more vegan meals in her magazine. I don't buy the magazine so I'm not sure if that actually happened or what. Her "Whole Living&...

Re: Do you cook meat, fish, eggs, etc for a non-vegan spouse

My wife and kids are vegan so there's no problem now. My wife used to eat a little dairy a few years ago, I wouldn't prepare it for her. It was a bit gross having it in the house but not a huge problem.

With Daiya and the coconut ice creams nowadays there's just no reason to go back...

Re: Yeast extract, unhealthy?????

Unhealthy? I don't think so.

Some people are unusually sensitive to MSG and may get headaches and go flush after consuming it, but that's a small part of the population.

It's just used as a flavor enhancer, perhaps not healthful but I don't think there's any real evidence that it's harmful.

Re: New Yorkers Coupon to Vegan Restaurant

Is this a vegan restaurant or just one with options?

Menu lists lots of meat but maybe it's all mock stuff? I don't see anything to that effect.

Too bad the offer is expired today but thanks for posting this.

TP hasn't had the ajinomoto bcaas on the site for a while. Not sure if discontinued or just out of stock.

Re: Vegans & Aquariums

IMO the two don't work together. I also had an aquarium pre-vegan and of course maintained it after going vegan, but I never "replaced" fish after they died so that situation fixed itself after a few years. I have vegan fed cats which is enough trouble, I don't know that you could even fee...

Re: smartphone app

I automatically subscribe to all the posts I reply to which I believe is a forum setting (from the web interface).

There used to be a star to click on in the app to subscribe to other threads. That appears to be gone but you can click-hold on a thread from the forum view and choose to subscribe.

Great. Yeah it's a lot better than trying to use the normal interface through a web browser.

Re: smartphone app

Well the app itself is written by a third party but it communicates directly with the forum, it doesn't send your login anywhere else. Fwiw your current web browser is also written by a third party. It makes interacting with supported forums a whole lot easier. Supports topic and pm notifications. D...

Re: Oreos... Vegan!!!

In the US it depends on the type. I believe the reduced fat ones are ok but the normal varieties are not. The fudge creme ones in the plastic tray are ok, but the fudge creme ones in the box (which otherwise look like the same product) are not.

Re: Vitamin B-12: Where To Get It Cheap And Vegan

Follow the link in the OP. It's all right there. But the short answer is, you need to take a B12 supplement. Many people (including non vegans) don't get enough and many people don't absorb it well. The supplement is cheap, safe, and a deficiency doesn't usually present symptoms until permanent dama...

Re: Braggs Liquid Aminos

Well, I oversimplified that. There is tamari that contains wheat as well, and it's not exactly the same as soy sauce (similar to how dark soy sauce is quite different). But my point is that there's already a commodity gluten-free soy sauce equivalent out there, and Braggs has a strikingly similar in...

Re: Multivitamins

I think they are worth it if you consider them to be cheap insurance for possible nutritional gaps. I'm currently taking the one from GNC which is vegetarian, but that's because they periodically have good sales on them. You don't need to get to fancy with which one IMO, they're not magic, they just...
