Not only am I totally convicted it was the right thing to do, surprisingly, my decision and conviction has also been influencing my husband to re-think his decisions as well (he's still omni but we eat veggie at home exclusively - he's very open-minded and supportive!).

Other than my sister, who lives pretty far away, I don't have any other vegetarian friends or family so I thought it would be smart to try and connect with some like-minded people

Thank you! Funny, I actually did this the other day, and there are indeed a couple in the closest city to me, which is a bit of a journey as I take transit, but I'm considering joining one that doesn't require a consistent attendance ^_^

Thank you so much, David, I definitely will check out those sites! Technically I'm lacto-ovo right now, but it's minimal, as my goal is to aim more towards a vegan diet, so I'm definitely paying attention to nutrients, knowing dairy/eggs will not be a big part of my diet I very much appreciate the pointers; the healthier I can be, the better an example I can set for the omnis in my life! ^_^
