Welcome to Veg'n in the 'Burbs!

It seems you have stumbled onto the companion blog to Homesteadin' in the 'burbs. Congratulations! Here you will find a treasure trove of vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family loves! I may even throw in some frugal shopping tips if you are good *wink* So pull up a seat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I also want to mention that we do not strictly eat vegetarian/vegan. We work these in as often as possible but we do eat meat...we are in the process of pinning down local organic meats and buy from halal markets or eat wild game. All recipes are intended to be vegetarian but are meat optional.

Kicking the dairy, for good!

This morning has been fun and busy.  breakfast was a bowl of grits with sriracha. pretty normal for me, except this time, i left out the cheese.  i noticed the cheese substitute i bought still had casein in it...depressing that a soy cheese has a milk protein in it.  (note to self: make sure the label says vegan next time).

In doing a little research and checking my friends blogs, i came across a great post from Jenn Blumberg, on her site, Hello Veggie (click it, read it, you will be happy you did).  Anyway, the post that caught my attention was 5 Tips for Going Dairy Free. and after reading through her post and the links it includes, I am doing it, no more dairy.  I am already a huge fan of soy, almond and coconut milk, and am willing to give the soy yogurts a try.  No more telling myself its a process, just do the damn thing and be done.

Thank you Jenn for the kick in the butt I needed!!!!
