Mandy, I'm 23, from Slovenia, living in London. I'm a dancer, vegan, working at Lush and a part time hippy. Part of Short Girls Directory :) I am in no way associated with any of the pro ana sites and I strongly believe that you should ALWAYS eat. Always. With no exceptions whatsoever. I'm here to help. Drop me a message, I don't bite :) <3 I track the tag 'fittybittybody'!

DAIRY
Alternative milks: Almond, soy, rice or hemp milk.
Buttery spread: Look for non-hydrogenated versions, like Earth Balance.
Dairy-free cheese: Daiya melts and doesn’t taste like plastic.
Cream cheese: Tofutti makes a reasonable mock cream cheese.
Sour cream: Again, Tofutti.
Soy yogurt: Good for probiotics.
 
PROTEIN
Tofurkey: If you can’t live without a “roast.”
Field Roast products: Grain-based faux meat products, not too processed and unusually tasty.
Tofu: Silken for smoothies and puddings; medium or firm for cooking.
Tempeh: Soybean-based meat substitute.
Seitan: Meat substitute made from wheat gluten; great texture, great protein.
Frozen vegetable burgersMaking your own is better, but these are convenient in a pinch.
Edamame: Fresh (frozen) soy beans are a great high-protein snack or side.
Beans: Dried and home-cooked are cheap and the healthiest.
Chickpeas: In addition to beans, because they’re so versatile.
Seeds: Sesame, sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, chia … all high in protein and healthy fats.
Nuts: Because, protein.
Nut butters: Because, peanut butter!
Cashews: In addition to nuts, because they can be soaked and used in so many ways.
 
GRAINS
Brown rice: Ditch the white for more-nutritious brown.
Quinoa: One of the few plant-based perfect proteins.
Steel-cut oats: Good for breakfast.
Whole grain grits: Because they’re filling and delicious.
Whole-wheat couscous:More nutritious than regular.
Multigrain pasta: Whole-wheat or legume mixes offer more nutrients and don’t all taste like cardboard.
Sprouted bread and tortillas: Food for Life products are nutrient-rich and altogether lovely.
 
COOKING
Agar agar: Vegan substitute for gelatin.
Nutritional yeast: A must for B12 and very palatable; use like Parmesan cheese.
Miso paste: Excellent for adding umami to vegetables; great anchovy substitute.
Vegetable broth: Go for organic, and watch the sodium.
Vegetable bouillon: Better Than Bouillon No Chicken Base works well.
Tomato paste: Great (surprising) source of iron.
Dried mushrooms: Like porcini, to add a meaty component to soups and stews.
Sun-dried tomatoes: Fantastic for adding texture and flavor.
Capers: Great for adding a punch of flavor.
 
BAKING
Ener-G Egg Replacer
Flax seedsTo make a viable egg substitute for baking.
Chia seeds: For nutritious puddings and egg substitute.
Vital wheat gluten: A great binder that also adds protein.
Coconut oil: Great for replacing butter in some recipes.
Vegetable shortening: Non-hydrogenated, like Spectrum.
Agave syrupInstead of honey.
Maple syrup: Instead of honey.
Blackstrap molasses: Fantastic source of iron.
 
CONDIMENTS
Mayonnaise: Vegenaise tastes most like traditional mayo, Spectrum is a bit sweeter.
Bragg Liquid Aminos: Liquid protein concentrate, delicious soy-sauce taste.
Sriracha: Or other favorite hot sauces.
Harissa: Tunisian hot pepper paste makes anything taste good.
Tahini: Sesame paste can be used as a condiment or in preparing Middle Eastern recipes.
Kimchi: Great source of probiotics if you don’t like soy yogurt.
SauerkrautA surprising source of health benefits.
