I don't touch seitan due to gluten sensitivity and don't think it's particularly healthy, so it's fine by me. There are other fabulous alternatives to meat, from organic, GMO-free soy to lentils, mushrooms and quinoa. I had no problems switching to an entirely plant-derived diet when I went vegan and my diet is so much more diverse now than it has ever been. Mind you, that is also with me staying organic and gluten-free. Giving up gluten was far tricky than giving up animal byproducts, but I've gotten quite good at cooking without it and I don't really miss it much either. The best thing I have done for myself, animals and the environment in many years is go vegan. And, even better yet, my husband made the change with me. Wonderful!

I went vegan, thinking that I was limiting myself... and I am amazed at how much more open I am to new culinary experiences and adventures. Thank-you to all the encouraging people on Care2 who helped to convince me to take the leap from vegetarian to vegan... and to PETA for that awful video of what happens to male chicks - that convinced me never to eat another egg. I made vegan brownies for the first time the other day using vegan becel and apple sauce - they had to be refridgerated first but they are delicious!

Animal products are a tiny portion of the food choices we have.

All SORTS of wonderful things! Go to the Vegan Society website or look in a vegan cookbook. It is not a limited diet!
