coconut milk has been on sale for the past few weeks in most of the Whole Foods I've been to.

Not sure where you're located, but Trader Joe's unsweetened vanilla almond milk is pretty great. I don't think it was too pricey, but I can't really remember. It couldn't have been too bad as my entire bill was like $31, and I had a $9 bottle of wine and plenty of other things.

Be sure to check out the soy free room for a list of excellent blogs!

I use almond milk. Some brands have soy lecithan as an ingredient, so look out for that if you're very sensitive to it. I use Silk Pure Almond because it has no soy and no carageenan. I spelled carageenan wrong, but you know what I mean.

Hmmm, what else... you can make your own seitan at home, just sub the soy sauce for something like Bragg's liquid aminos. (A totally soy free person may have a more delicious suggestion than that.)

I just try to eat soy in moderation and I feel good most of the time. When I first went vegan, I'd have a tofu scramble for breakfast and a tempeh sandwich for lunch and a few soy lattes during the day, and I felt like death. If I stick to maybe one serving of soy per day, I'm alright.

There's a soy free room? Do you have to have special access or something, or am I just blind?

I use this too, and it's fantastic. I really like the taste and texture of this compared to other almond milks.

Braggs isn't soy free. It's made from non-GMO soybeans and purified water according to their website. It's just less salty than soy sauce.

You can go and check out my blog. I haven't posted in a while (due to various computer issues), but there are still some good ideas there. I even have a rice milk concentrate you can use easily make rice milk.

Braggs is made from soy. Its basically non fermented soy sauce.

Its claim to allergen-free fame is that its wheat free, compared to regular soy sauce.

Ahhh, sorry guys! Got my allergens mixed up.
Well, I know my soy-free peeps make seitan, not sure how they go about it.

In BCG's 20 Minutes to Dinner she has a recipe for watering down vegemite/marmite into a soy sauce sub for recipes like that.

There is a brand called Coconut Secret that makes a soy-free coconut aminos. It isn't very salty at all, but can add the depth of soy sauce. I kinda like that it's not as salty; easier not to overdo it!

Plant milk is very easy to make. It's also coniderably cheaper.

In a blender, throw a handful of porridge oats, and another of soaked hemp seeds/almonds/cashews/nuts/cooked rice/various seeds with about a litre of water. Blend them up until there are no obvious lumps, then pour into a strainer bag and collect the deliciousness.

You can bake the remaining husks into bread if you want to be hardcore.

If you were relying on soy milk for b12 and calcium, make sure that your new milk is fortified or that you find other sources. Non-soy plant milks are less likely to be fortified for some reason.
