    Haha I have always intended to make a cheese sauce with nutritional yeast but I always end up just getting the jar of the yeast and eating it with a spoon instead. I think I need to start buying it by the kilo

    A book I ordered a while ago arrived today too - "This is Why We Don't Eat Animals", anyone have it?
    It's a children's book (I like to plan ahead! I also bought "It Takes Two To Tango" about the gay penguins to read to my future children) but it made me cry when I was reading it walking home from the post office! Stress and PMS and thinking about animal families are a bad combination
    I have 'this is why we don't eat animals, 'vegan is love' and 'victor the vegetarian'? I think it's called... About a boy who decides to become vegetarian when he finds out his parents are going to kill a lamb to have for dinner basically.
    I wish there were more kids books out there.

    I don't often eat bread because the gluten free varieties are pretty bad. But now I'm craving 'cheese' on toast!!! Might have to dig out my bread maker
    .... Or Mac and 'cheese' droool...
    Yep, that's my lunch today I think

    I haven't had any (living) children yet and I am already being criticized for wanting them to be vegan (or at least vegetarian like DP)... I just keep replying with- "would you be saying the same things to a religious parent bringing their child up with beliefs different to yours?"

    I'm glad there are a few books out there to show the kids

    I've just discovered Vegusto. Oh my. Half a block gone in two days

    We have 'That's why we don't eat animals' but haven't got the new book. We also have Herb the Vegetarian Dragon and Benji Bean Sprout doesn't eat meat.

    I have such a weakness for books, our plan is to TTC next year which I figure is soon enough that I can start buying children's books!

    Almai927 it's hard, I'm already dreading having to defend this to my family! Apparently it's only bad and "brainwashing" when you're teaching children something against social norms, of course imposing your own beliefs that eating animals is good isn't brainwashing

    Ugh... I just thought I'd love to get those books then remembered that DP and I haven't agreed yet. She eats chicken and fish and wants him to do the same. Of course I want him to be vegan or at least vegetarian. But every time we talk about it we end up at the same place. Argh!!!!

    Me and DH are apparently horrible vegans because our DD eats meat still.

    I've always been vego, DH and DD always ate meat. Then DH and me went vegan (DD is allergice to milk and eggs) but didn't cut out DDs meat as she loves it as it is she is extremely fussy!!! it's frowned upon but I don't care. I'm a proud vegan and will NEVER go back, one day DD might join us.

    Thanks, it's interesting to hear how it works in other families.
    My DP eats meat if we're out but is happy to eat a vegetarian diet at home - I do the shopping and cooking so he just eats whatever I give him! Which I'm happy with, I've had boyfriends in the past where our differing attitudes caused a lot of tension.
    With respect to children, DP seems more worried about the social aspects, like their not being able to engage in all the social rituals that involve food and that they'll think other people (like his family!) are evil for eating animals.

    My feelings are that as they get older I certainly won't forbid them from eating anything, but I still wouldn't give it to them myself. And as long as we focus on teaching them about vegetarianism/veganism in a gentle, age-appropriate way, focusing more on choices for different people/families and it's ok that other people make different choices...

    I don't know, it all sounds rather difficult. But at least I can control what they eat and do for the first few years! I'll try and indoctrinate them early
