Trying my best to stay away from the junk food. I do have pudding mixes still in my cupboard. It is absolutely AMAZING how much is vegan once you start looking for it.

Yes, I agree about being loaded with crap, but I do admit that sometimes being tired and having eaten it as a child, I will just make it. So, it's vegan junk food! I saw an instant pudding in a pouch, never saw that before, and I grabbed it, but waiting in line at the check out, I saw it had written on it that it didn't work with dairy alternatives, so I took it out of my cart. I wonder now if the boxed instants will work as said, or not.

Re: pudding mix-- although it is considered vegan-- it is loaded with crap and BHA is an ingredient- not cool as far as I am concerned- I would maybe consider a different pudding mix - if such an beast even exists

I have tried that too, and it hasn't worked, but I think it is because you are supposed to use the INSTANT pudding mix, according to the article. Somebody try it with that and tell me how it works, if you don't try it before I do!

RE: pudding mix - I have had no luck using veg milk for pudding mix, is that because I used a different brand??? It would NOT set up.

I'm having a great time with the challenge of vegan-ish cooking, no waste, and planning meals in my ranges of all the nutrients. AND I've actually lost a few pounds. Having fun.

No, sounds like a good book! I had another cookbook by the same author, Robin Robertson, called "Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker"--I don't remember if I've ever cooked anything from it! You are a good reminder, thank you! Because I really should try making something and see if I like it or not. Actually, I think I tried the recipe on page 124 for "No Hurry Vegetable Currry" and was disappointed, the green beans were overcooked? I can't remember or not. I need to try something else and see if I like it.

This may be the wrong thread to put this, but I'm here and I wanted to ask folks"

Anyone else seen the Veganize It! cookbook. It's published this year and I was able to find a copy at the Library. I want to buy one for myself. It has vegan ways to make almost anything.

I found that sticking to primarily beans as my protein source was both affordable and less prone to chemical preservatives, salt, etc. than pre-made packages items: vegan lunch "meats" and hot dogs, etc. I do like knowing that I can use that instant pudding pie mix and an alternate milk to make a quick cold pie for summer though! The more you exercise, the more you can eat--even the good stuff!

I finally did as you suggested and had quite a shock. It's great that those are available to us as vegans....I think I'll pass and eat my vegetables, though. I don't feel so deprived that I want to spend my calories on any of those foods. The article makes a good point that vegan doesn't necessarily have to be healthy.

Okay, when I tried to connect to the article too, and it wouldn't when using the "Add A Link" tab button for some reason. SO, I recommend just copying the web address and pasting it in your browser in order to link to the article.

OMGosh! I had NO IDEA that Jello Brand INSTANT Pudding and Pie Mix could be vegan! They don't need dairy milk to work, you can use any alternate non-dairy milk you want! These are not fruits and vegetables, they are pre-made products, but if you are really committed to being vegan, this list can be wonderful for a quick fix and even better for a last minute potluck dessert item. AND--I already knew about the Chipotle Sofritos being vegan.
