Vegan Resolutions

Thanks to all of you for your responses to my question of "Vegan Enough?" I've been vegetarian for over 14 years, and now vegan for ten months.

This year, I resolve to eliminate honey from my diet. This means I need to be less lazy about my choice in buying bread -- I need to find a good loaf of whole-grain bread that doesn't have honey.

My other resolution is to not gain weight. I've lost 3 1/2 pounds since Christmas. I'm now 5'10" and 164 pounds, and want to lose a couple more pounds. I'm going through a particularly tough time in my life, and succeeding will be difficult, but I know I can do it. It just means that I can't turn to food for comfort, especially at night. I can do this.

We've had trouble finding a good grainy bread without honey too. Right now we're using Wonder bread 100% wheat. It's very much like a tan version of their white bread, so it's probably not what you are looking for. I justed wanted to get some whole grain into our diet and it was the easiest way for me.

Have you thought about making your own bread? I have a breadmaker and have made some really nice breads.

Breads and Pastas are my weekness at times I think I eat too much of it. I have lost approx 15 pound since trying to go vegan (aspiring vegan)

I've found Arnold's Whole Wheat bread. It's ok, nothing to write home about, but I don't have the time or energy to make my own bread. And Harmonia, congrats on your weight loss... I have a weakness for breads and pasta too!
