being a vegetarian is too easy

anonymous asked:

Hey! I've decided to go vegan. I've been a vegetarian for five or six years now, and I've recently discovered that I'm lactose intolerant! And severely so. Even a bit of cheese on my pizza sends me to the bathroom. Being vegan gets a bad rep, which pisses me off. Any words of encouragement? Even now it's hard to drop alfredo sauce. Ugh I miss alfredo sauce.

Oh man chicken broccoli alfredo was my favorite dish growing up, my dad makes it veganized now and it’s actually amazing. It’s pretty easy to make really good alfredo, i’ll link some recipes below. I can get my dads recipe eventually too. Anyways - veganism does get a bad rep and it’s pretty discouraging in the beginning but once you learn to let the negativity people spew roll off your back it gets better. Most people regret not going vegan sooner. It’s so very important, and very worth it. I’ll link some posts that may be helpful below!

You can also buy premade jarred sauce, I’ve gotten this one before, it’s pricey though and can make better.

easy delicious salad dressing

1-2 tablespoons lemon juice (about half a lemon)

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

Basically about equal parts everything, if you want to adjust proportions. I just always use half a lemon at a time because it’s easier and makes enough for two decent-sized portions of salad. Put everything in a jar and shake it up to mix, then pour on your salad and toss to coat. It’s really easy and super good and I went from someone who couldn’t stand eating salad to it being one of my favourite meals, especially in the summer when it’s too hot to cook.

(It may or may not meet everyone’s standards for being vegan depending on how you feel about honey, but I bet you could get away with a substitute if you’re not a honey fan.)

very quick and easy lunch, i was too hungry and tired to cook and since today it’s hot and sunny a big bowl of fruit was perfect! watermelon and peach salad topped with shredded coconut, hemp seeds and lemon juice (thanks lemon for being good with everything)
