If you make Rip's lasagna, make half the recipe unless you are cooking for a huge group. It makes a ton!

That lasagne sounds good. I need to look at the book again. Speaking of sweet potatoes, the latest VegNews has a sweet potato-peanut soup I can't wait to try!

Here are some sites with good recipes.

Vegandad.com
fatfreevegan.com
happyherbivore.com

I like the Engine 2 Diet book by Rip Esselstyn. (He is Dr. E's son from the previous post) He has a great group of recipes. I especially like his sweet potato lasagna

Hi Chris!

Welcome to SP and to the Team here. Congratulations on finding the willingness to make healthy changes in your lifestyle, especially around something as close to home as how you eat! And the vegan way is (to me anyhow) the only healthy, compassionate, environmentally responsible way to do it.

If you need menu ideas, there are lots of good ones around. Kathy Freston was on Oprah last week, and her website www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Week-One-Kat

-Frestons-Vegan-Menu-Plan
give god ideas. The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) offers a vegan kickstart here: kickstartdev.pcrm.org/ . If you're ready to dig into some reading to get more guidance, try "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" by Caldwell Esselstyn, MD and "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman, MD. There are teams for these here, too!

Please let us know when you need help.

Hi my name is Chris and I am new. I weigh 328 which is a 11lbs lighter than two weeks ago. Two weeks ago I decided to make a healthier me and provide education to my two kids about eating healthy by showing. I have been eating Vegan for two weeks( I think) some labels are very confusing. So saying Hi.
