    You might also want to try-

    coconut water (I mix it in smoothies)
    coconut milk (destroys almond milk!)
    sweet potatoes

    I’m not vegan, but I try to eat things that aren’t bacon sometimes…

    I’m not vegan but my wife is, so I end up eating a lot of vegan meals. They’re actually quite tasty and relatively quick to make. Here’s a few tips:

    1. Stir-fry with extra-firm tofu, brown rice, peppers and eggplant. Normally I’m not a big eggplant guy, but if you learn to cook it just right and throw in some tofu and brown rice, it really is quite filling!

    2. If you have a good blender like a vitamix, you can make some pretty amazing healthy smoothies. Throw in pretty much any leftover fruits that may be a little too ripe + some leafy greens like spinach or romaine and BAM, you just had salad for breakfast, you win. Ninja tip: if your smoothie is too bitter, add a small amount of unsweetened hershey’s cocoa. It’s like a health hack for smoothies. You can also use dates.

    3. Kale, spinach and arugala are all awesome. A big part of enjoying vegan cooking is learning to enjoy vegetables and lots of salad. Find some root veggies that work for you.

    Hey Chris

    I’m vegan, so here are two easy meals that we enjoy:

    Chickpea salad

    * 1 can chickpeas mashed
    * 1/3 cup veganaise
    * 1 celery rib chopped
    * 3 Tbsp fresh dill
    * 2 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
    * Pepper
    * Salt

    Mash. Chop. Assemble. Goes great with a salad or on toast.


    * Corn tortillas
    * Black beans
    * Seitan
    * Corn
    * Olives
    * Salsa
    * Avocado
    * Spinach

    Cook the seitan with a small amount of olive oil, with garlic if you like. Heat the beans. Chop the olives and spinach. Assemble!
