Talking Hello from the United Kingdom! <3


I live in Maidenhead, England and in the last month I've decided to go from regular meat-eater to as close to vegan as possible.

The transition was triggered after seeing all the animal welfare videos on YouTube, including the "glass walls" video. I know it's going to be a tough journey for me, especially since I still live with my family, all of whom are very keen carnivores.

I've always been a huge lover of animals and my mum's always been saying this decision was only a matter of time!

I'm looking forwards to meeting some like-minded people, and enjoying the community and support on this forum!

Hi FennecFox,

Mercy For Animals has a beautifully-illustrated Vegetarian (actually vegan) Starter Guide. It summarizes vegan nutrition on page 7, and it shows very easy vegan meal ideas on pages 11-13: http://www.mercyforanimals.org/files/VSG.pdf

There are a couple of vegan social groups near you:




“Under the twinkling trees was a table covered with Guatemalan fabric, roses in juice jars, wax rose candles from Tijuana and plates of food — Weetzie's Vegetable Love-Rice, My Secret Agent Lover Man's guacamole, Dirk's homemade pizza, Duck's fig and berry salad and Surfer Surprise Protein Punch, Brandy-Lynn's pink macaroni, Coyote's cornmeal cakes, Ping's mushu plum crepes and Valentine's Jamaican plantain pie."

from Witch Baby, Francesca Lia Block, 1991

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
