Welcome to the club newstars.......your vegetarian membership card has been mailed out to you. Please learn the secrect handshake.
Vegan Outreach has a stellar starter kit.
Please do not let the word "vegan" in it scare you.
The information applies just as much to vegetarians as
vegans. Just add milk and eggs if that is what you are into.
Vegan Outreach will mail you a very nice printed copy for
free. You can also download a pdf version for free or read
it on the web for free.
The kit includes unique and thoughtful essays by
Vegan Outreach founder Matt Ball that will help you
make vegetarianism a rewarding and lasting committment.
It has a better recipe section than most starter kits that
I have seen. Best of all it also has an up to date,
complete, easy to understand, and brief nutrition section by
Jack Norris, a vegan Registered Dietician.
Assuming you have a solid reason for starting veg*nism
the two best things you can do to make your commitment to it
last is to learn good nutrition and to learn to cook a small
set of recipes you really like.

Vegan Outreach also hosts a web site of health articles
for people on plant based diets:http://www.veganhealth.org
I would ignore the nutrition advice from other veg*n sites
on the web, especially the Animal Rights sites.
Most ( but not all ) of them either have dated, incomplete
or flat out wrong nutrition information.
