Hi All, thanks for the comments and tips . I have been suffering with a cold since starting my vegan adventure (pure coincidence) but so far I am finding it pretty easy . I plan ahead and can honestly say I am rather enjoying it . I am trying to teach myself to like beetroot juice as well , I drink a glass in the morning quickly followed by a glass of orange juice . I really do dislike beetroot but seems to be getting easier to drink every day .
