  1. Hi, I am a vegetarian, could be vegan except I love eggs.  My surgery date is March 3 and I am trying to learn, prepare and plan as much as possible.  I read that you had mentioned liquid amino acids or something, what does that help with or do?  I think protein shakes (i read the link you posted for best tasting vegan shakes) with almond milk will help me meet the goals initially while on recovery.  Thanks for any other advice especially for the first few weeks and months.   

  2. I am a vegetarian, like you I enjoy eggs and dairy products. The brand Unjury as a new line of protein powders and stuff called "planted", its okay. My surgery date is March 3. So I am scouring all the boards looking for veggies and their experiences. Looking forward to more of your blog posts and hope all is goes well in Mexico.
  3. Thank you for these posts, reading in preparation. Are beans still good protein sources? I'm vegetarian and don't care for yogurt.
  4. Hi are you in Nashville area?
