i'm vegan and have excellent nutritional intake, never any issues with protein, b12, and all the other things that people like to bash on when they're uninformed.
i've been participating in veganmofo (vegan month of food) on my blog this month, and it's so inspiring to see all the other creative vegan dishes that people are creating. and everyone posts recipes too, which is awesome.
i personally LOVE coconut milk, which has more calcium and iron than cow's milk anyway. it just tastes so nice.
houseofpeace- i love butternut squash and maple syrup. so tasty! i'm not an exact recipe follower either, i just use them as inspirational guides.
