    I've recently discovered this as well, and I'm completely addicted. Thanks for linking their website, I hadn't realised they made so many products!

    I just got back from poland and I was surprised at how many vegetarian and vegan options were actually mentioned in the menus there. It was really nice and along with other 'inspirations' made me want to go vegan. I looked up on this thread documentaries, so far I've watched vegucated, forks over knives, food inc and food matters. It's interesting because they all tacle nutrition in different ways but end up in the same place more or less (and complement each other) (so far my favorites were forks over knives and food matters) I still wish to inform myself on the subject of veganism (so if anyone has other documentaries or books to recommend :) or even personal stories about their way into it (I have to admit I haven't gone back to read old posts here :-s ) )

    PCRM (Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine) sponsors a 21-day kickstart that I believe you should be able to find online. It's international ... I remember there's a Chinese version.

    i am really into superfood right now. I watched "you are what you eat" the other day and they mentioned it more than once. I bought a book. it´s not that i was´t aware of good food before, but i want to know more and learn more and eat better.

    thank you fashionista-ta for your recommendation! :D

    myown: yay an other thing to watch! They talk about super foods in food matters, and it's really interesting to hear about health from the perspective of nutritionists instead of medical doctors (I wasn't aware about how different those were)
    I took spirulina when I went vegetarian, apparently it's one of the best superfoods out there, I'm pretty excited too because my mom started taking some for the iron, she usually brushes me off when we start talking nutrition (she always treats my being vegetarian as a disorder, I'm not even going to mention the fact I've started 2015 vegan.. ^_^ ). I also tasted goji baies (?) yesterday for the first time, which have as much calcium as milk and a ton of anti oxidants.. I'm still wondering if the high sugar doesn't cancel out in a way the benefits..?

    Has anyone tried JUST Egg? It's not yet available in my neck of the woods. Neither PCC Community Markets nor New Seasons Markets in the Seattle area carries it but I'm very intrigued!

    "It is currently available in Veggie Grill outlets, as well as Flore restaurant in San Francisco and Equinox Restaurant in Washington DC. It is also available at vegan-friendly supermarket and deli chain Green Common in Hong Kong" | July 17, 2018 11:06 AM | plantbasednews.org
