Hi Kitty15. Going vegan was my new year's resolution so I've nearly done two months! It's quite hard to start off with but gets easier I promise! Don't worry about falling off the wagon now and then. Sundays off sounds like a good idea to me but then I'm not Catholic so I don't really know how lent works! It's always better to do something than nothing, I always say. Hotpots are easy, with or without big homemade dumplings. I cook loads of pasta dishes, and make my own dips from soya yoghurt etc. There are some things I really miss though. Eggs and cheese mainly!

i'm not catholic either!!! wondering why i'm putting myself thru this... good karma i hope! sundays off it is. made pasta last night with tomato sauce but no cheese need to get something to put on top of my pasta. what do you put in a hotpot? is it the same as stew?

I think you're doing really well. I have such a bad reaction when eating dairy I gave it up and feel heaps better. I found exploring different grains and trying new recipes every week helped. I love Puy lentils in salads. Good luck ;-)

My mum gave meat up for lent about 16 years ago and has never gone back!
I also have a dairy allergy, although I can cope with tiny amounts as ingredients now (e.g. no products you would consider dairy)
There are vegan cheeses, but I am not a fan (whether this is because I have not eaten cheese though I am not sure) dad had them though and said they were ok melted on a veggie burger etc
Stuffed peppers are good with tomato sauce topping instead of cheese, pasta doesnt need topping other than sauce
