Hey everyone, as the title suggests I have a few problems in switching to a vegan, or even vegetarian diet, so let's get right to it: 1. I'm an extremely picky eater By which I mean especially texture wise, but taste is also a big thing. I tried looking for some good meat free recipes and found much to my horror almost nothing without beans and nuts. Beans make me want to spit them out as soon as they are in my mouth with the additional urge to brush my teeth immediately. Nuts while edible in small doses have the annoying tendency to get stuck in my throat and stick everywhere, so when I eat nuts I usually end up breathing a few pieces in, and generally annoyed for the rest of the day because I feel them sticking in my throat. I tried tofu and I hate it, same problems as with beans. Some vegetables are fine, but most of them taste like ***. 2. Even when I like something it doesn't necessarily mean I can eat it. Case in point avocado. Tried some, loved it, ate some more of it and there was my old friend nausea. This happens with a variety of food stuffs, like cream and sausage like stuff and apparently avocado. 3. The meat and cheese supplements you can buy in my area are f*** expensive and I'm on a budget. 4. Figuring out all of this stuff and making vegan alternatives in my own kitchen takes a lot of time. I have none. I generally eat rice, or noodles with some kind of delicious meat containing sauce, pizza, buns with ham, or more complex meat dishes, because I like them and they don't make me (want to) puke. The questions I have resulting from this are: -Does anyone have similar issues? -Does anyone have a few good recipes for delicious vegan sauce that I could use for my rice and noodles instead? I haven't found any. -How do I get affordable vegan food that's tasty, doesn't feel like sand, or tiny rubber balls in my mouth and doesn't take loads of time and effort to make? -Does anyone have solutions my questions so far haven't considered? And no, I don't consider "suck it up and get used to it" a solution.
