The obvious answer here is to not use that cookbook that you were given, and find recipes online that better suit your situation.
>even when I am back at school I can rarely find vegetarian "specialty" ingredients
You don't need to eat jackfruit, seitan, or tempeh to be vegetarian. Speciality ingredients can be expensive and not neessary (buying gluten flour to make your own seitan might be a good idea, but don't buy the packed stuff - it's just not worth it)
When I first went vegetarian and then again when I first went vegan I spent a lot of time on the internet researching recipes. I ignored the ones that had obscure ingredients and still found scores of recipes that I could use. I'm not sure where you are looking.
Nutritional yeast, though, is something that you should invest in. Order some off of amazon if you need to. It's an ingredient that i use everyday in one way or another.
I learned how to cook with basic vegetarian ingredients before stepping up to trying the specialty items. Eat grilled cheese and soup, make a chickpea spread and eat it on toast. Saute vegetables and cook beans and eat with rice. Cook falafel or fry eggplant. Cook a spaghetti squash and make a mash of vegetables to go with it. Make pad thai. There are so many options that don't require special ingredients. If you come across something that has just one ingredient that you don't have, try to replace it with something else or just leave it out completely.
Just experiment with different kinds of food and find out what you like and what's easy to make.
where's that? you can find it in most supermarkets/grocery stores in the isle with spices and baking stuff. It's not often in the same little section of shelves as all the other standard dry herbs and spices, but it's usually near other baking yeast or condensed milk and lard and that sort of stuff. at least that's where it is in my local kroger. it's kind of a weird spot... but then, nutritional yeast is kind of a weird ingredient that doesn't really fit in with a lot of other stuff.

you can also sometimes get it by weight from some whole foods sections of stores.
I saved the deviled potatoes recipe, too!! Can’t wait to try it out.
The vegan cheese you tried, do you remember whether it was the Kraft-singles type? I tried ... Morningstar, I think? ... and didn’t like it.
BUT there is this stuff called Nutritional Yeast.
Here is a link to what I just got. It tastes like cheese sprinkle for popcorn. That’s how I’m using it now, as a seasoning.
When I go shopping, I’ll get a larger container so I can make Mac & Cheese with it. I started out small until I knew I liked the taste. :)
I did a quick scan and didn't see this mentioned in the comments, but in addition to a supplement feel free to liberally douse your food in this delicious, savory stuff. It has B12: [link]
You can also buy fortified milks--I buy soy and almond milk with B12 for my coffee and oats.
Ohhhhmygossshhh!!! Yours looks so yummy!! Braggs' makes this [link] and I have some in the fridge!! I wonder how it would taste on salmon. MMMmm, I may have to have a keto tasting of fish and chicken using nutritional yeast.
So I was a vegan and currently a vegetrian, both of which are notorious for being low in b12. Oral supplementation on b12 is garbage from everything I've seen and tried. Good veterinarian fed eggs and nutritional yeast are your best bet (excluding b12 injections which seem dope.)
It's only a week. You will be fine. :)
The only thing I can think of with a cheesy flavor is nutritional yeast. It's more like Parmesan though so not sure how it would be with eggs. Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning, Premium, 4.5 Ounce [link]
I use dijon mustard just because that is what is in my fridge, you can use whatever mustard you have/prefer. Nutritional yeast is... well... I'm not sure I can describe it well. It's a seasoning kinda that gives food a cheese/nutty flavor and has some good vitamins. It is found in a lot of vegan recipes. Yes, you can find it at the store but I'm an online shopping junkie so I get mine from Amazon. [link]
I hope you like it!
I feel the same way you do about eating the same thing every day. YUCK! takes the fun out of eating. LOL I have some that could work well for you.
How about sloppy Joes made with turkey meat. (the family might like them too and the sauce freezes GREAT!
Sloppy Joe Sauce
This meatloaf is GREAT! also made with Ground Turkey
Best Ever Turkey Meatloaf
this is a really nice and also EASY soup to make. ou can use a chicken or turkey sausage in this too
Sausage, Kale and Bean Soup
As you can see you can make this with Shrimp or Cauliflower it's great heated up. Not sure about freezing cause never got any there before it was all gone. LOL
Kung Pao Cauliflower
I have recently had to go dairy free for health reasons. and I don't eat that much meat anymore. so I have dropped a lot of weight Keep in mind Dairy is made from the FAT of the milk so you might want to make sure you cut it WAY back or out for a little bit until you see what it does for you. (Just an idea) I tried it for 5 days and lost 4 pounds.
Don't know if you are into meatless dishes but I will share a few that are really good and light for you to look at.
some Asian Foods are Quick and very tasty also low in fat just be careful of the sodium.
Egg Foo Young is Great for dinner with the gravy, and also Great for a quick breakfast. you can make them ahead and I keep them in a resealable bag in the fridge with waxed paper between the patties.
Just for flavor here is an easy Asian flavored dipping sauce you can control the heat in this and it is GREAT on almost anything. LOL
My Favorite Asian Style Dipping Sauce
Egg Drop Soup
Teriyaki Sauce, Baste and Glaze
This is my Favorite Soup it is a creamy tomato soup but there is no Fatty Cream in it. it also FREEZES!! OMG so so good! now there is one ingredient in it that is a bit spendy. I would look around for a small amount of this stuff. This is the cheapest I have seen and you only need a tablespoon or so in most recipes it will keep a long time. Amazon
Dreamy Vegan Tomato Soup
Vegan Mexican Black Bean Salad
this salad is easy and Really good. mix in some quinoa, or brown rice, and or top with grilled chicken breast. YUMMY meal.
Black Bean and Corn Salad
sorry some of these are not freezable but will last a while. Good Luck with your diet!
Oh, then it’s soooo easy! You really have no excuse.
And any health food store in the US carries it. It’s not exotic in the least.
I found this one in Amazon: Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning, Premium, 4.5 Ounce.
Link to nutritional label
I was just looking for a similar recipe this morning. I guess if the Nutritional Yeast Seasoning is not OK, I could just use olive oil, salt and perhaps white vinegar.
make sure you look at canned items make sure they are labeled no salt added. I can't help you with Korean food. but... I can find a few things for you to look at
there is no salt in this recipe
Garlic powder and fresh garlic have no sodium but can make foods taste more salty
fresh onion and onion powder can give a sweet effect to savory foods too.
Nutritional yeast can give a salty effect and has only 3.2mg sodium per serving
Bragg brand has a nutritional yeast seasoning that you sprinkle onto foods that has 10mg per tablespoon, so keep it down to 1 teaspoon you might bee good
Mrs. Dash has loads of salt free seasoning blends.
Fiesta Lime tastes like taco seasoning
Caribbean Citrus tastes great on seafood and has an old bay hint
loads of great ones out there.
If you're just looking for the flavor, wouldn't nutritional yeast do the job?
Used in lots of vegan recipes, especially "cheezy" or savory flavored things
You could also add some Nutritional Yeast! It will make it taste like white cheddar popcorn.

Not sure which grocery chains might have it but I'm sure some do. I get it from Amazon!
