Day Five: Find Substitutes

The task for day five is to find substitutes for meat, cheese, and dairy products.

This one is super-easy for me. I already love Silk vanilla soy milk, Daiya cheese, Smart Bacon (veggie bacon), and Morningstar Farms Chik'n Patties. All of these things are currently in my fridge/freezer.

Sarah rightly points out that these should be "transition foods", not a permanent staple of a vegan diet. Vegans who eat this stuff (plus all the vegan junk food out there), but don't eat much by way of fresh veggies, fruits, etc, end up becoming unhealthy "junk food vegans". The key to success with this is to use transition foods wisely, sparingly, and to really get to know your nutrition needs.

Done (and I didn't have to go anywhere or spend any money)!
