Exclamation Going Vegan...Help Me Out!

OK, I've decided after racing in triathlons for 2 years now that I should actually take care of my body better than I am. So, I've decided to go vegan! I'm really excited about it, but need some new recipes. Give me your best....

Best of luck. Just remember that your bodies protein demands do not change because you stop eating animal products. I am sure you know what you are doing, but just in case someone else reads this post who is a little less informed...

Not trying to be a know it all, but my girlfriend decided to go vegetarian (working towards vegan) and forgot that she couldn't just cut out meat and dairy and continue training at the gym without supplementing somehow. She has since lost about 15lbs of muscle and her hair is falling out.

Re: Going Vegan...Help Me Out!

all those websites above are great
protein is no biggie to find in beans etc.
dairy is something our bodies never needed its all bad but calcium you can get from many plant sources etc,
what kind of recipes are you looking for?
ive been vegan 12 years now,my dh is vegan and my 10 mo dd has been vegan since conception and we are the healthiest ppl around even the air force points that out to us a lot!! hee,hee.
