Being a 13 year old vegetarian in Australia is hard.There aren't many
products available. Sanitarium is good though they have good tinned
foods and most are low fat. It is hard to find good recipees too. I LOVE
to cook. If I find a fat free book it isn't vegetarian. If I find a
Vegetarian book isn't fat free. This mailing list and website is
FANTASTIC!!!!!!! Here is recipee i found in a low fat book that i
changed slightly because of thr rules.

I used real eggs because my family wanted some. They loved them. Unlike
me they are not ff vegetarians and can be fussy. Even my high fat loving
brother liked them. Mum said they were delicious and is taking for
morning tea to work. Dad likes them too and he usually doesnt like
choclate flavoured things.
Please tell me if you like them!
