Sputnik, I love mushrooms and eat them a lot, hubby does not care for them, phhh. We went vegetarian quite a few years ago (only for a year or so), but did it all wrong. As in too many carbs, sugar, high sodium and preservative prepared veg foods, etc. Not gonna make the same mistake again. It's becoming very evident it will take a lot more juggling and adjustments to get enough nutrients from a vegan diet. I tend to run anemic and since heme iron and b12 are much easier to absorb than plant-based, I might have to look at supplements. Not too worried about protein cause most Americans eat way too much protein anyway, and greens, nuts, oat products, legumes and other staples contain plenty. So protein requirements shouldn't be too hard to meet. I love lentils, chick peas, and some other beans. Hubby loves most beans except for lentils and chick peas. So, I guess I'll have to make different dishes, or we'll have to learn to like all of it. I don't know if we can do this long-term, but we are both wiling to give it a really good try.
