I Need Your Vegetarian / Vegan Help!

For my own reasons, and after one failed attempt a few years ago, I’m again going vegetarian, perhaps even vegan (I love cheese, but my tummy doesn’t!).

I’ve been meat-free for a few months now and things are going great. I’m feeling awesome! My complexion has changed for the better, I’ve dropped a few pounds (I’m not trying to loose weight, but I did have a couple pounds of fat that I needed to rid my body of if I wanted to be healthy), and even the flesh under my fingernails looks nice and rosy and pink. And I’m full of energy!

The main reason my former attempt at vegetarianism failed was lack of yummy recipes and knowledge of meat-free alternatives available.

So here is where I ask for your help and expertise…
