I'm 16 and I am vegetarian trying to go vegan .. The problem is everyone in my house eats meat and my parents nor I know what healthy foods to buy for me to eat ... Can you give me some suggestions please ...

Hi there! You guys are the best, I never seen so many people wanting to go vegan and that makes me extremely happy :)

Anyway, here are some staples I’ve gathered that might help. All kinds of fruits, veggies, green leafs and nuts/seeds are essential on a plant based diet. You can even start your morning with a green smoothie as I do, it’s my breakfast and gives me every nutrient I need. 

  • Alternative milks: Almond, soy, rice, oats or hemp milk.
  • Buttery spread: Look for non-hydrogenated versions, like Earth Balance.
  • Dairy-free cheese: Daiya melts and doesn’t taste like plastic.
  • Cream cheese: Tofutti makes a reasonable mock cream cheese.
  • Sour cream: Again, Tofutti.
  • Soy yogurt: Good for probiotics.
  • Ice Cream: Frozen ripe bananas blended in a food processor. Flavor with cocoa powder, vanilla extract, or peanut butter. OR buy SoDelicious, Almond Dream, Rice Dream, Soy Dream, or Tofutti. 
  • Whipped Cream: Whisk cooled coconut cream. OR buy Soyatoo! Soy Whip or Rice Whip.  
  • Buttery spreadSquid Butter is also an option (but pricy).  
  • Tofurkey: If you can’t live without a “roast.”
  • Field Roast products: Grain-based faux meat products, not too processed and unusually tasty.
  • Tofu: Silken for smoothies and puddings; medium or firm for cooking.
  • Tempeh: Soybean-based meat substitute.
  • Seitan: Meat substitute made from wheat gluten; great texture, great protein.
  • Frozen vegetable burgers: Making your own is better, but these are convenient in a pinch.
  • Edamame: Fresh (frozen) soy beans are a great high-protein snack or side.
  • Beans: Dried and home-cooked are cheap and the healthiest.
  • Chickpeas: In addition to beans, because they’re so versatile.
  • Seeds: Sesame, sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, chia … all high in protein and healthy fats.
  • Nuts: Because, protein.
  • Nut butters: Because, peanut butter!
  • Cashews: In addition to nuts, because they can be soaked and used in so many ways.
  • Lentils: Super cheap, versatile, easy to make, delicious, and nutritious.
  • Brown rice: Ditch the white for more-nutritious brown.
  • Quinoa: One of the few plant-based perfect proteins.
  • Steel-cut oats: Good for breakfast.
  • Whole grain grits: Because they’re filling and delicious.
  • Whole-wheat couscous: More nutritious than regular.
  • Multigrain pasta: Whole-wheat or legume mixes offer more nutrients and don’t all taste like cardboard.
  • Sprouted bread and tortillas: Food for Life products are nutrient-rich and altogether lovely.
  • Amaranth: Super cheap and nutritious. 

Weltbester Maulwurfskuchen (vegan)

Für den Teig:

  • 500g Mehl
  • 1 Packung Backpulver
  • 200g Zucker
  • 2 Tüten Vanillezucker
  • 350 ml Wasser
  • 200 ml Sojamilch mit Geschmack
  • 150ml Sonnenblumenöl
  • 50g Kakaopulver
  • Falls der Teig zu trocken wird dann mehr Öl und Milch nehmen

Für die Füllung:

  • 500-600 ml Soyasahne zb von Soyatoo oder Schlagfix – muss kalt sein!
  • 2 Tüten Sahnesteif/
  • zartbitter Schokoraspeln
  • circa 3 Bananen

Und so gehts:

Für den Teig alle Zutaten miteinander vermischen und bei 180 Grad Umluft für 45 Minuten backen (Springform). In der Zwischenzeit die Sahne mit dem Sahnesteif aufschlagen und geraspelte Schokolade unterheben (im Kühlschrank lagern). Wenn der Teig fertig gebacken ist, diesen abkühlen lassen und die Kuppel oben abschneiden, auf einem Teller zerkrümeln und zur Seite legen. Den unteren Boden ein bisschen aushöhlen und mit halbierten Bananen belegen. Anschließend dick mit Sahne bestreichen und die zerkrümelte Kuppel auf die Sahne bedecken. Zur Mitte hin sollte der Kuchen höher werden – ist ja ein Maulwurfshügel . Den Kuchen im Kühlschrank lagern damit die Sahne fest bleibt.

Viel Spaß und Guten Apetit!
