    Hello,

    Vegan SWer here! I can't eat quorn and I find the plan incredibly easy to follow, there are so many free foods to choose from that I don't feel like I'm missing anything. I eat a lot of veggies, grains, pulses, tofu and sometimes soy meats. It does feel a little centred around quorn at first, but once you start cooking you'll be fine. I just make the old meals I used to love more SW friendly, so I don't even feel like I'm eating that differently.

    There are plenty of other veggies/vegans on the board, so I'm sure you'll get some more advice soon

    Hope this helps :D

    Hi and welcome! I'm new to the site too and have just started back on a real mission to lose weight after having my boys!

    I'm also a veggie although I do eat quorn! I'm sure you'll find loads of food u like on SW! Pasta, rice, veg, fruit.. Do u like tofu? You can still have egg and certain amounts of cheese, cereals and bread.

    I'm sure you'll find your way with it quite quickly!

    I've tried and love seitan, although it's usually higher syns than soya because it's made from flour. A lot of the Redwoods mock meats are made from seitan :)

    Tofu is ace but can be bloomin' horrible if it's not prepared properly. Before cooking, make sure you drain it and press the water out of it, otherwise it can be too moist and will go soggy. Tofu is great because it just soaks up flavour, so soak it in some soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and spices and it'll be delicious. Otherwise there are plenty of marinade recipes out there. Oh and make sure it's not silken tofu you've bought, which is jelly like and best used for cakes and puddings.

    Cool thanks for that i was wondering about the whole syn factor with it seeing its a wheat based product. This is firm tofu(cauldron) and yes i bet its quite horrible without any marinade. Urmmmm think chili and garlic with it and some stir fry veggies, will get andy to try it too lol

    Pescie SWer here! I love Quorn but veggie partner hates it, or anything else that tastes like meat, so don't tend to eat mountains of it when cooking for us both. He also doesn't like eggs so we hardly ever have omelettes (he's a pain in the backside, bloody picky eater!). Easy to get plenty of protein from pulses though, we have chickpea curries quite often, or pasta meals with some lentils thrown in, or cottage pies made with veg and three-bean salad. Tonight will be spinach and ricotta pasta with some puy lentils added, yum!

    Hey there, I'm a veggie too! I love this diet as it's so vegetarian friendly. I've tried other diets before and found them really hard.

    I love Quorn, but make plenty of things without it. One of my faves, which is reall quick is an arribiata sauce, just frylight some red onions and peppers with some chili, add a jar of passata and a dash of Tobasco then serve over pasta. Also you could try mixed bean chili, I love adding the Heinz sweet chili mean beanz! Yummy!!

    Good luck with your weight loss, you'll do great!! x sarah x

    Hey there! can i ask what kind of tasty meals can you eat as a vegan? I'm a vegetarian but may have to cut out dairy products for health reasons. :)
