Hit me up!! i was a meat and potatoes and cheese guy from the Midwest and have been vegan the last 3 years and love it and will never go back. Take a watch to what the health and forks over knives to start. I have way more energy and climbed two mountains since being vegan. Welcome to the club and I will follow this as well. Best of luck!

What the health is what put us over the edge, It’s pretty alarming honestly. Do you have any meals you like to eat consistently?

Interesting to see how this goes.  I love salads, big salads with extra stuff like beans, broccoli, cauliflower, etc., and we eat lots of veggies, but that's about as far towards vegan as I can go... simply love so many other foods too much.  We eat pretty darn healthy though... thanks to my wife.

What the health put us over the edge too.

For meals, we used to be a lot better before have a little one. We make an Indian Dahl with red lentils that is wonderful. Salads with veggies and prepacked flavored tofu when i need something green. Walnut Quinoa and green lentil burgers with mushrooms and avocado. Sweet potato and Garbonzo Buddha bowls (minimalist baker has so many good recipes). Red lentil chili. Tempeh curries. Vegan nachos with taco tofu and black beans. Meals are almost endless. 

We do eat some processed vegan food because, you know, life as a parent to a toddler makes it hard to cook at times.

I also have a recipe for killer fluffy pancakes and my wife makes a great tofu scramble for breakfast. WE actually just made an out of this world biscuits and gravy that rivaled anything not vegan.

Being in a suburb of Portland, Oregon makes it easy and there are several vegan restaurants to choose from if you want to go out.

So I am sure some of you have seen my discussion in the “random thread” but wanted to start a longer discussion as I am sure some folks are interested in this.
Guess I will start with me. I am not a small guy at 5’11” 203 lbs. I can eat let’s put it that way....and enjoy food of all types. I have tried pretty much anything and everything.
Recently looking into just cleaner eating my wife and I decided to go down this road and fully commit. She will be prepping a majority of the meals as I am more of a griller. The reason we decided to do this is we have been eating out a lot more recently on top of not getting as much exercise as we normally would we have just felt ehhhh. On top of that there is a lot of research and proof that several diseases can be prevented and if not reversed by a clean plant based diet.
I will be logging daily meals we eat, not all but ones I think are pretty good and appealing to eat. I will also be tracking my weight loss if any weekly. With that I want to make sure A) I feel better but B) see if there is any improvement in my golf game as well specifically making sure my SS stays up
With weight loss I’ll be tracking to make sure my swing speed doesn’t dip. Last time out my SS dropped pretty drastically and I think was because I was tired after an indoor simulator day. I want to see if I can keep my swing speed up and my overall energy up. This will be pretty subjective energy wise so I will use a 1-10 scale most likely.
For the first month I’ll be pretty dedicated to making sure I’m only eating clean. I will most likely start incorporating the occasional steak down the road but for now it will be strictly clean.
if anyone is interested in seeing something specific let me know will be glad to Incorporate. 
*Also taking suggestions on title name*

Good luck!
Looking forward to following along.

Just a PSA, being vegan is way more than eating salad and there are many of other great options. I love myself a vegan Ruben for example.

It’s difficult but it’s also like anything else in life; if you commit to it you can commit to it. 
 

For me, I am not all-in on the diet but I make a conscious effort to reduce or eliminate meat whenever possible. No more dairy milk and I’ve cut back on cheese. 
 

Once you get beyond the obnoxious comments you can find plenty of good options. 
 

Good luck!

So we have a pancake and waffle recipe that’s great. We have done a chili that is honestly better than a meat chili with way more Flavor (will be tossing this on here next time we do it) lots of great stuff. I think for breakfast I’ll be leaning more towards smoothies during the week but weekends we have found a few things that look appealing and are loaded

Thanks Ben. That’s where we have been for a little bit but are still constantly eating out when we aren’t eating well. Time to commit.

I’ve been on the vegan tip for nearly a year. We still occasionally indulge in ritual consumption (ie - plate of brisket burnt ends) but the outcome inevitably renews my belief that plant based is the right path for me.

I don't make one. There is a company here called Snackrelige that makes a good one. Although i have a great one from the book Wicked Kitchen that if I had a day, i would make from scratch. Used Seitan and looks amazing. Some places here also make a pretty good reuben, also with Seitan.

Great to see this thread. A plant based diet is for sure the way to go, as far as your overall health is concerned. 

If you're worried about swing speed dipping, give your body a couple of weeks to process the switch. Quinoa is an underrated plant protein, and a solid supplement with B12, preferably cyanocobalamin. 

I have worked in places with heavily vegan menus and know lots of tricks. If you want to make your own salad dressings, or want to learn how to spice up those meat replacements, baked goods or breakfasts im right here. If there is something you are particularly worried about missing, there is a way to make it. I ate the Engine 2 diet for about a year and lost almost 60 lbs. I was in fantastic shape, but a ribeye is a ribeye and here we are. 

Keep us posted, and good luck with the shift.

My wife and I have leaned into this a bit working to eliminate meat when possible. I do feel better when we stick to this more. I have settled on more vegiterian than vegan mostly because of breakfast still having dairy and eggs. Most other meals are plant based. We also have a couple little ones so we also do some of the prepackaged stuff needing to save time and all.

My wife and I did this same switch about 6 months ago.  Mine was due to a doctors 'recommendation'.

I found this cook book to be one of the better ones.  Lots of good things in it.
