When I went vegan at 19, I thought I would never be able to live without cheese. And in fairness, that was—and continues to be—a very daunting part of the diet. Full disclosure: This is coming from an Italian woman who was raised on creamy pasta sauces, stuffed shells, and baked ziti.

But what was far more challenging, and took a whole lot more getting used to, was figuring out replacements for eggs. I’d already seen all the animal rights videos and knew I didn’t want to support large-scale egg production. But I also didn’t want to feel like my diet was totally restrictive. So after months and months of ordering dry, whole-wheat toast at brunch outings with friends, foregoing cookies and other baked treats, and missing the mayo I loved on my sandwiches, I started looking into creative ways to be vegan without feeling starved of one of the most universal ingredients in the world.
