    There are several posters who are vegan, though their names completely escape me at the moment! There are also quite a few vegetarians (including me).

    The SW website has a seven day vegan meal plan in its "Useful Features" section, but I have to say it's not exactly inspiring!

    Hi There is (was?) a veggie and vegan section in the healthy eating part of the forum. I'd be happy to be more active there if other people would be happy there as well. Nice to see another vegan

    Wow that's an amazing commitment, well done! There's a great 30 day vegan challenge on the Viva! website here 30 Day Vegan | Viva! with loads of tips to get started. I'd stock up on healthy extra A essentials like the different milks (all have different quantities depending on what you like and how much you will use - Oatly is my favourite, super creamy!) and most soya yogurts are 2 syns a pot - Alpro ones are probably the best but I also sometimes buy Tesco free from lemon soya yogurts too.

    Good luck!

    SW is super easy once you get into a routine. It took me a few months to really start loosing and getting into a rhythm...I don't really use soy milk for anything so my 'A' choice is always chocolate oat milk, heated in the microwave each night for a hot choc. 'B' choice is bread and nuts usually.

    Wow, thank you so much for this amazingly helpful and supportive post! I am so excited to try something new! Whenever I tell people about it, their reaction is always "but what will you eat?!" I've made a list of meal ideas on my phone that I keep updating whenever I think of something and when I show it to them, they're always surprised at the amazing stuff you can eat with a little imagination.

    What different vegan-friendly milks are you allowed on SW? I've tried soy and almond milk before - I preferred the latter! Must try the oatly milk too - is it in the fridge sections or with the UHT milks?

    I must try that, sounds like quite a nice treat as I noticed that vegan friendly choc isn't as easily available as normal choc!

    You can get lots of vegan friendly sweets and chocolate online or Holland and Barrett do quite a few if you have one near you, in fact they're quite good for other vegan foods as well x

    Are you a member? If so, the healthy extra list online is super extensive with A choice milks - I find it is trial and error with what tastes nice and how much milk you will get through as some brands you can have almost a litre of a day. I find the best one is Oatly which is in the long-life section - Tesco stock it, and as mentioned they also do Chocolate Oatly which is also an A choice and that is an amazing hot-choc alternative. The next best one I like is Koko dairy free coconut milk, again that is also longlife and Tesco also stock this. Tesco is the best supermarket for free-from stuff - you can get Tesco dairy free chocolate buttons (around 7 syns a bag - the white ones are the best!) and quite a lot of dark chocolate is vegan - just look out for sneaky butterfat in brands like Lindt, Tesco also has a good chilled free-from section including cheeses (my favourite is the medium flavour and 35g counts as a healthy extra B). You can get some good frozen items in Tesco - their soya mince is completely free and they do a 2 pack of 3 bean and red pepper burgers at 3.5 syns each. You can even get dairy-free ice cream, cheesecake, creams and custards in Tesco

    My staples are things like dried soya mince, tins of beans (borlotti/cannellini/black eye etc), tins of chickpeas and green lentils, tins of Chickpea Dahl (free!), brown rice, wholewheat pasta etc Being vegan is sooo easy, when you get in to the hang of it you'll be flying

    This is really so amazingly helpful - thank you so much!! Tesco sounds like the place to go

    Some meal ideas I've come up with are;

    - Falafel burgers served with hummus, salsa and salad in WM pittas with spicy wedges
    - Kale tabbouleh with falafels
    - Apple & blueberry oats
    - Lentil or baked bean lasagne
    - Vegetable biriyani
    - Vegetable risottos
    - Vegetable pasta dishes... lemony courgette?
    - Lots of different salads with beans and diff veg
    - Potato rostis with tomatoes and mushrooms
    - LM sausage and veg casserole
    - 5 bean chilli

    Few other randoms...

    - Veg/bean soups
    - Ratatouille
    - JPs and toppings
    - Couscous dishes
    - Hummus varieties to experiment with
