    Hi,<br> I am raising my baby vegan (with the exception of free-range eggs). I would like to teach her about the reality of why I choose to be vegan and why it is important. There are a couple of books (v is for vegan, is one I think) written for kids but I haven't read them yet. I am concerned...

    A couple of years ago, Cooks Illustrated magazine had an article about how veggie broth is made from waste scraps that are close to inedible...and then covered up with flavors, salt, and preservatives. Even the organic ones are guilty of this practice and have an inferior taste to them.<br><br>...

    <p>Hey everyone! My kids and I are fairly newly vegetarian, and even though we are not completely vegan, I'm trying to cut back on dairy as much as possible for health reasons and I'm not a huge egg fan to begin with. My question is: what is your favorite kid-pleasing quick, cheap meal for...

    Not a food quandary but a life quandary. Maybe this should be in country living but I'm calling out to my vegetarian kindred spirits. Are you a vegetarian that has killed animals? I've set mouse traps before. I've set live traps that weren't well tended to, sorry 'possum. Didn't know that one...

    <p>Wondering if any other vegans/ vegetarian mamas have issues with soy? I have been struggling to be a vegetarian/vegan (Hard to convert DH/kids, stick with it, I am a SAHM so DH holds the purse strings, etc). I have been wanting to get back into the swing of it, but last time I went full...

    <p>I know this is a tall order but I'm about to pull my hair out that my husband and I agree on NOTHING food wise. Whatever I like he hates and vise versa. What are your go-to freezer/crock pot or generally easy meals that even a carnivore will like? </p> <p> </p> <p>Or should I just make...
