 1. Tempeh is a traditional Asian food made from soybeans. You can find tempeh at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, or anywhere natural foods are sold.
 2. You might try Follow Your Heart's Vegenaise, or even whip up some at home.
 3. Nutritional yeast is a tasty, cheesy-tasting yeast (nothing at all like brewer's yeast) available at health-food stores.
