Hey Everyone! I'm just curious how long all of you have been vegetarians/vegans/raw foodists... What are your primary reasons for your diet choice?



I've been vegetarian for 1 year and 2 months

Vegan for the last 4 months



Anyone else?

I've been veg*n for four years.



Here's a little poll I started once asking people why they were veg*n.

Vegetarian about 5 or 6 years except for a time when I was hospitalised. Vegan for 8 months! (I was surprised, I thought I had been vegan for only a few months, but it is closer to nine - jeez I've been hanging around here a long time now!)

Wow, some of you have been veg*n a long time!



I think it will be so cool when my son can say that he has been vegan his whole life! That is...crossing my fingers he'll still want to be one when he is older!!

Well, I decided to become vegetarian at age 9 but I like to say that's when I started my journey rather than when I became vegetarian because I can't really remember if I had any slip ups or not. But going by that age, anyway, I've been vegetarian for 9 years, vegan for nearly 1.

I was veg*n in 1984 due to living in commune situations in college and the pass the hat for groceries method was never very fruitful. Can't buy meat can't eat meat....just got used to it. When my daughter was 2, 1990, she asked what meat was...I told her and she decided right there and then not to eat it. for the most part she has stuck to her guns for 13 years. I had a meat eatin' fiance.. .no longer.... and when he moved out 2 years ago I was overjoyed to resume my complete veggie ways of cooking and go further into vegan. I'm not fully vegan...I will eat fish and REALLY good cheese in small amounts. But, I realize that lifestyle as a slow transformation usually sticks better than the "cold turkey" method...pun intended.

What's really funny is that my mom 58 and sisters 34 and 35 have also chosen to move towards vegan eating and we all just sortof did it at the same time without much conversation or "conspiring" cool huh?

I really do think it's growing in measures you can't imagine....yippee

Am I the Q*ueen of runnon sentences or is someone out there more proficient?

C-sta
