I'm so happy to have a forum for vegans. I am so so happy. I have been hoping for something like this for so long and I kept searching for it, but could not find one. Here we are! I hope this is really fun like I think it will be.

I want a place to review foods that I try. Right now, I only eat oatmeal, sweet potatoes and vegetables.. also a green drink. It's embarrassing. I need more meal options and I wanted friends to discuss this with, but I have no vegan friends.

I feel the same!
I use an app called “a billion” that lets u review vegan products/ restaurant meals. It’s been really helpful in finding local vegan options and every 10 reviews you can donate $10 to a vegan sanctuary or outreach place (for free!)
Hope this helps!

Welcome, loreal1! it really is amazing to have a place to connect with other vegans. Particularly during the pandemic when we are all missing human interaction!..

In terms of meal options, have you looked up any vegan recipe blogs? One of my favorites is https://www.thissavoryvegan.com/. Here's a rough pattern I tend to follow that maybe could be useful, every week I eat:
- a pasta dish (spaghetti bolognese with vegan crumbles, or peanut noodles, or pesto pasta with mushrooms, mediterranean pasta salad)
- a rice dish (tofu curry, 3-bean chili, falafel)
- something frozen, because it's a quick and easy indulgence (vegan burger with fries or corn on the cob, vegan chikn nuggets, vegan pizza, vegan pierogies/dumplings)
- mexican food (jackfruit, soy crumbles, or crispy potato burrito or tacos with rice, beans, corn, cilantro, lime, salsa, and guacamole)
- smoothie (sounds like you got this one down!)
- other ideas: baked potato with chili, kale bowl with roasted veggies and sauce, stir fry with tofu

i hope this helps!
