When you change your way of eating a lot of things happen, you might go through withdrawals , you might feel not so chipper until the new way of eating sets in... You might feel anxious  etc...
Well I am happy to say the only issue we have had to deal with is excessive hunger... in other  words  yes we are eating  good veggie meals.. but we never quiet get full.. and learning to live with that new feeling... Comfortable but not stuffed.. is ..... different... Its not horrible but it does take time to get used to...SO we are learning.. yesterday I   got to try an  artisan bread  sandwich stuffed with cold grilled squash, grilled onion , tomato, arugula, cucumber and other seasonal veggies... we had baked beat chips with a few baked sweet potato chips as well.. for dinner I had a caprice salad and that was it.. the hunger was there but it was not terrible.. and I slept well too... still learning new things every day.... which is very very good..
Not sure how far into this we will go .... but we still are heading that way... here is a breakfast recipe  we have found interesting and plan on trying  soon for a sunday family brunch..:
THIS is from  E2

INGREDIENTS Serving Size  
spelt flour - 2 ounces
oat flour - 2 ounces
baking powder - 1 teaspoon
flaxseed meal (ground) - 1 ounces
milk substitute (soy) - 3 ounces
applesauce - 1 ounces
honey (or agave nectar) - 1 teaspoon
vanilla - 1 teaspoon
blueberries - 2 ounces
Whisk the flours, baking powder, flax seed meal, and salt together in a large bowl.

Combine the wet ingredients in another bowl.

Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients.

Stir the batter just until the dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened; it will seem very thin, but it will thicken.

Let the batter rest for 15 minutes (spelt flour takes a little longer to absorb liquids). If you can’t wait, your pancakes won’t be as crisp.

After the batter has rested, fold in the blueberries. Cook according to directions for E2 Basics Pancakes. here they are:

Combine the mix and the liquid in a large bowl, stirring to remove lumps.

Heat a dry skillet until a drop of water dances on its surface.

Spraying the skillet once should allow for three batches of pancakes.

Ladle a large scoop of batter into the pan. Several pancakes can be cooked at once if you’re using a large skillet.

Cook until the batter begins to bubble and the bottom of the pancake is golden.

Flip and cook on the other side until both sides are golden.
