Vegan and Vegetarian- Food Substitutes for Recipes

Vegans and vegetarians often start as meat eaters and for a number of reasons choose a lifestyle change. That change leaves them with old recipes, often from families and friends, and new recipes from a varsity of sources. Whether a choice to eat different or a moment of “what will I do now!!??”. There is help! The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is my fall back site – lots of research based facts and studies, as well as really amazing recipes and facts. Today I found this handy Ingredient Substitution Chart by PCRM.

Substitute 1/2 banana for an egg

Check out the chart and experiment with old and new recipes.

Hint: I keep a box of Ener-G Food egg replacer in my pantry for when I’m substituting a recipe for guest or I don’t have time to experiment.
