I hear you Happy Cowgirl,
i am the same way with cheese, dairy and eggs. the body naturally craves vitamins, water and things we interpret as "Food"

Welcome "iamvegannow' to our family of vegan, vegetarians, and rawies. I lived in Northern California and was supported by a wonderful community of non violent, raw foodies. though i only went raw for about two years it was an incredible breakthrough to my relationship with food and my perception with my way of life.
I am now in Southern California where my nieces and sister in law are l

Welcome Colleen. if there are question concerning your journey towards a veggie life lets us know.
one of my favorite families that helped me with my raw food diet was Sergei, and Valya Boutenko. they started as kids and are now giving there own seminars about there life styles very inspirational if u want to check it out.

i had the same problem when i trained for marathons. i would hit this plateau and couldn't go any further. my teachers noticed and advised that i start to incorporate meditation or yoga into my routine. i didn't think it was going to work but it did and the fascinating part was that most of it was emotional baggage.
it also helped with calming my mind, reduced 'runners' stress, and insomnia.
Right On! Mexican vegan are coming into style. I got most of my family to change some of the ways they eat. Suggesting alternative ways of cooking like changing types of oils or baking instead of deep frying. They may not be thinking of becoming vegans but it does make them think about eating more healthy. When my mom got diabetes it was a wake up call to lot of my family and friends.
I have never seen the movie but i have written several college papers on subject.
I think after seeing SuperSize Me i quit the fast food all together.
Hope you will take the time to explore the Moo pages and share some of your creations. I find that people who just turned vegan have the most creative recipes.
and welcome again to the pasture of happy cows!

my sister in law is also gluten intolerant and we shop at different stores like Whole Foods and some specialty stores too. we recently found out that some of the powdered drink mixes contain wheat in it. so label reading is a must. also there are website that will list everything a product contains that may help her select brand names or organic products.

"Nothing will benefit
... it has happened to me too....where I used to work my co-workers would ask me to lunch but then stopped because I told them about my "vegan-ness" and so after no one wanted to eat with me... and I never preached about lifestyle or about animal rights. But they just didn't want to be reminded of what they should be eating.
The house I live in is split between carnivores and me.
i would suggest a Naturopath specialist. I am only speaking for myself but I too had a lot of stomach issues along with emotional problems. I had to discontinue all foods for several weeks just eating basic neutral foods until my system was cleaned out. then slowly add foods back in. though i found that most foods i loved didn't love me back, i stayed vegetarian for awhile but found tha
