Maybe the nuts aren’t a big thing, if you don’t care about cashew and almond cheese. The soy, though, that’s a pretty big staple of the vegan diet- for most people.
Some of us vegans can’t eat it! My allergy to nuts was something gradual, I don’t think I was always intolerant. Soy? I have never been able to keep it down. Soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, tofu, soy milk anything with soy makes me puke. It’s really unfortunate and inconvenient too, considering how much vegan food has soy and how much protein it has.
There are other alternatives to nuts and soy, though. And as you discover more and more of them, you realize you’re not really missing out on much!
