    Great ideas. Eating vegan is super healthy and we have done it for over 10 years . These tips are a lifesaver in more ways than one.

    Can you heat the mixtures up to make an omelet or once you let them sit, do you eat them raw?

      Great question. You can either either way. Please let me know how you like!
