Vegan / Vegetarian Discussion - All Things Veg*n Forum

We don't list these stores (in general) because they also carry a lot of animal products. However, here's a link to a cool page on their site which lists everything vegan they sell, and it's updated!

    Sweet! Thanks! I have used and recommended their lists to patients before, for allergies, etc. I'm glad they updated this!

    Nice long list. We should hand out copies to to people who say "...well then what DO you eat?"

    Some of their stuff even has this green leaf that says 'vegan' on it! Surprised the hell out of me, lol. TJ's is fine and dandy for a few items, but I'm super happy to be a member of a Co-Op finally in my life!

    Your post jogged my memory gr8vegan - thank you - I recently thought to post about the Vegan logo.
    .
    I especially hope that more restaurants start to use it.
    .
    This is how restaurants & others can get to use the "green leaf" from the Vegan Society.

    I have heard "rumors" that the HappyCow logo is available to display in restaurants / businesses also.

    Over to you Mr Webmaster Eric for the details...........

    I have been viewing vegan products and have tasted some already prepared frozen vegan dishes in supermarkets but I was alarmed at the calorie content in each serving.

    Are these unhealthy fats that are processed for these simple vegan dishes? It seems that when I make brown rice (just water, no oils....) and steamed veggies (once again land) it comes out to 350 calories at most for 2 people. When I view for example, Amy's vegan dishes they can reach up to 450 just for one serving. Is it because of the preservatives put in?

    I hope I made this question/concern clear. Thanks everyone!

    True John, we have decals. If anyone would like some to pass to their favorite veg spots, just email us.

    auungbong - As far as I know, Amy's products do not contain preservatives (which don't usually add calories anyway). If you could point me to a particular product, I may be able to help you in discerning where the culprit calories may be coming from.

    Also, just because something is vegan doesn't necessarily mean it is lowfat or a healthy choice. It may be made with a lot of coconut or palm oil, which are saturated fats (which may be fine in small amounts but unhealthy if you eat too much). Items can also be just overloaded with healthy fats but too much of them (or too much of any number of other things) or too much sugar, just as examples. Best bet is to read the label and compare products to find your best choice.

    Tatiana,

    Thank you for your advice! I didnt know palm/coconut oil is high in fats hmm I should research this more. When I go to the market again I will find a certain product that has it.

    Thanks again!

Keep HappyCow Growing Strong!
