Basically overnight I had eliminated all the food I was eating and needed to get to the store & FAST! Thank goodness Alicia talks thoroughly about dairy alternatives in her book (The Kind Diet). I quickly learned about soy milk/almond milk and that there was a lot of cereal out there that was vegan. Ok, breakfast accomplished. Now onto lunch. My whole wheat bread and peanut butter and jelly was vegan. Ok, lunch accomplished. Time for dinner! This seemed to be the tougher one as I was scared of tofu because really I just had no idea what I was doing with it, or any other vegan protein, so I was lost in that department for way too long...like a year.

The first year of being began was all about the processed foods - cereals, coconut milk yogurt and ice cream, granola bars, muffins, soy milk, etc. I'm not saying there weren't any whole foods in there, just that they were severely lacking.
