There has to be someone else on VB currently living in Greenville...? I'd love to attend a meetup nearby or at least have lunch with someone? My best friend is veggie, too, so we could make it a group thang.

Yep!  Corn-fed & strong!  Been a vegetarian for a few months.  It was health driven.  Before the change, my blood pressure was 150/91.  I'm 35, it shouldn't be that high.  As of 3 days ago, it's 119/71.  I'm not grossly overweight (well, I could lose 5-6  lbs.), it was age & heredity, the italian curse. (1/2 italian) The women in my family get big, but the guys get the BP.  So, I beat heredity by omitting meat entirely.  I have the occasional omelette, but meat is history.

 

I mean, I'm in the gym 6 days a week, & still had nurses asking if I had a history. The navy docs say it was the best decision I've ever made. I don't miss meat.  I'm too busy concocting new plates for dinner & perfecting my tofu-veggie-pineapple shish-kabob.  We're out there in Greenville!  I'm Jason, taking a semester off from Greenville Tech, working & I drill at the Donaldson Center w. the reserves.  6 yrs active Navy 7 reserve.  5 yrs on submarines, 7 as an expeditionary specialist.  At the age of 35, I'm not on the quest for acceptance or anything.  To old to care, lol.   So now, my health is back to normal, I'm slowly training for my 1st traithlon here in Greenville that's going to be in January.  Just to try it, just to see if I can finish.

Anyhow, good to see there's more in the area.  I understand how important it is to be able to eat similarly with others who eat similarly.  Food is a social thing.  It's meant to be shared.  Tofu shish-kabobs are things that are too good to be kept a secret, lol.  It's also refreshing to swap recipes & be able to sit around the table with people that don't ask, "good gravy, what in the world are you eating?!?"  Besides, had I never become a veg-head, I would have never discovered Moo Shu Vegetables w. hoisin sauce @ the House of Chan. grin.gif
