    Trying To Go Vegan, Too!

    I'm trying to go vegan -- went cold turkey off meat, dairy, eggs, fish almost 3 weeks ago and feel GREAT. Eating tons of raw veggies, hummus, beans, tofu, fruit and loving it. Running into bumps, though. Everything is fine when I cook -- my husband will eat the vegan chili...
