Traders Joes Vegan Product List pdf

"For the love of wit (and a few other reasons), we’ve identified products free of all animal
products and/or by-products including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, lanolin and
confectioner’s glaze with the “V”  (for Vegan). Please note, this list is not all-inclusive. We do our
best to keep the information as up to date and as accurate as possible, but we do introduce and
discontinue products all the time, so keep your eyes open and always read product labels."

It's a cool list, but always seems to be missing vegan things. I think they're very slowly getting info from the manufacturers about ingredients and such.

LOL, vegan vegetables.

I want to print this out and carry it around so I can show all of those naysayers that we do in fact have stuff to eat.

It would be more than hilarious to make print up a shirt with a list...

I actually read an article that argued that consuming organic products was actively UN-vegan.  The argument was that in fertilizing organic fields, animal waste is often used, and therefore animals are being exploited in the production of organic food.  Though I suppose it is a sound argument, I feel it goes WAY too far, and is absurd.  As hard as we all try to be compassionate to animals, unless we personally grow and harvest everything we eat, we can never achieve perfection...it is a balancing act of trying to do more good than we do harm.

Like most people who have posted, I TRY to eat organic when it works out.  However, I think I am more focused on location than organics.  I live in Maine, so EVERYTHING has to travel pretty far to get here.  When I have a local option, I ALWAYS choose that.  We have a beautiful tomato farm here, and I choose to buy my tomatoes from them (though they are certainly not certified organic) rather than get tomatoes grown in California that are certified.  Again, that balancing act comes into play.  For me, the impact is less and the nutrition higher in local produce, plus my purchase benefits my own community...so local wins.

To the person who said that home cooked beans cause them to have gas...do you soak them long enough?  I used to have the same problem, but I started soaking them longer (like probably twice the recommended time for most), and problem solved.  (I don't mean to be insulting in that question...I know that everyone knows to soak their beans...but longer really does seem to be better)

I don't know if that was me this time, but I've said that.  What's the low-down on gas-less home bean cookin'?  Is longer soaking the only thing you do or do you change it up elsewhere in the process, too?

(how did we go TJs -> bean gas?)

IMHO, beans will always give you some gas. I don't think any of the common 'tricks' - cooking with onion, cooking with garlic, draining the liquid out all the time, adding salt, toasting them lightly before boiling, whatever - will give you less gas. The gas is because bacteria ferment the soluble fiber in the bean, which is within the starchy part. As long as those things have (soluble) fiber, something in your intestine will have fun times with it. But, I've found, the more you eat beans, the less, er, 'pronounced' the effect is. Which doesn't biologically make sense, but... in my experience.

I have read that you can soak, then freeze and that rids the beans of the gas causing complex carbs/ aka sugars.
Some stomachs lack the digestive enzymes that break down certain foods.

Hm... well, if it works for you, it works. Isn't Beano (or whatever the generic name is, if there is one) some sort of enzyme-type-thing that breaks down the soluble fiber? I wonder if that works...

Personally, I have worse problems with chickpeas than any other bean :/ I just don't eat them that much.

I've read the label on Beano & it contains fish oil I believe. Try the recipe here on vegwebthat works like Beano.  Sorry, I don't remember the name of the recipe. Someone else here probably does.

it doesn't contain fish oil, but it does contain gelatin apparently.

Yeah, I've tried the "beano... you know you need it!" recipe. It works.
