I am a vegan. I chose this lifestyle to help me out temporarily. I need to lose weight, and by picking up this lifestyle, i have already seen progress. I have found that it can be difficult to find quick, and inexpensive options though :/.

If anyone has any recipes, that would be awesome! :D

On a serious note, I have no idea how anyone can cook anything sensible without butter and eggs.

And if God had meant for us not to eat cheese, Italy would be like the Derian Gap

im more suited to help with vegitarian than vegan stuff

(._.')

but why do you need to lose weight?


i suppose if i HAD to go vegan

id stock up on fruits and veggies
not a fan of the smoothies and shakes

i pretty much baked steamed and boiled all my veggies when i went vegitarian (added olive oil or butter and garlic light salt and pepper universally to every veggie)


also from personal experience i find intense work out sessions are a much faster way to change the shape of your body rather than diet

Heres a link to Good Housekeeping Magazine and their "30 Best Vegan Recipes"

30 Best Vegan Recipes - Easy Vegan Dinner Ideas You'll Love

Hope this helps give you some ideas!

Also, I have heard it said about smoothies 'Blend your vegetables and eat your fruits', i try to use only a small amount of citrus fruit in a smoothie for flavour due to this.

Bon appetite!

There are lots of things that can replace eggs. I was going to link a list but for some reason every image file is too large. I suggest a google search of "Vegan" "replace eggs" or similar. There are plenty of natural options: flaxseed, peanut butter, banana, apple puree, chia seed among others and some commercially prepared ones as well.

If you are going vegan, it might be time to go to a vegan dedicated site for a better chance to get quality advice from actual vegans who have been at it a while. :)

Quick meals that take minimal time to prepare are things like:

Cooked beans from a can, wholemeal bread (check the ingredients) and whatever vegetables you like.
Rolled oats (minimal cooking time with hot water) with banana and/or other fruit.
Flash frozen corn, green peas and commercially prepared potato that only need to be steamed for a few minutes
GABA rice (this is normally not sold in the West unless you live in Japan) but you can make your own with organic brown rice (that hasn't been heat treated) if simply soak overnight. It greatly reduces cooking time.
Peanut butter (or other nut spread) on wholemeal bread with or without jelly is an easy quick way to fill up.
Steam your own potatoes and freeze for reheat when you want them. Reheating them with a steamer takes only a few minutes.

Those are some of the things I do, and I'm vegan. Of course I use various spices and flavorings that aren't listed here to make things more interesting. If you pay attention to how some of your favorite products are spiced, you can use these combinations in your own prepared meals.

I have the perfect recipe for you!

1) gather up all your veggies, fruits, bread/grains, candies, sugars, juices, soy products.
2) throw them all out.
3) go to supermarket, have a 3 inch thick rib-eye steak cut.
4) grill on high, 6 minutes each side.
5) serve with a glass of water, and enjoy.

Honestly, if you want to lose weight, keto works best. I lost a good amount of weight eating sausages and eggs all day.
