So I thought I'd just post a little inspirational thing on here I guess to new veggies and old ones. I've been a veg*n for about a year now (I'm lacto-ovo.. I know, I know... we're working on it. haha) I am incredibly happy with my life choice and feel I really am making a small difference in our world. Since I went vegetarian one of my best friends did as well and another cut down to only chicken. I have a guy I've been seeing for almost 6 months now. When I met him he had never even tried broccoli. He lived off meat and hot sauce. haha I'm slowly introducing him to new foods everyday. He had his first broccoli the other day haha as well as his first bowl of chili (veg chili of course haha). We're working on peas next haha I also cook with fake meat when he's with me and he actually likes it. He even buys it on his own to make tacos and stuff when we're not together. He doesn't think vegetarianism is weird anymore and I think I've opened up a lot of peoples minds. My mother has bought about 3 vegetarian cookbooks since I went veg and even my father will make me food and leave little notes saying "Don't worry! It's meat free" I made my own recipe for AMAZING gravy thats meat free, I'll have to post it sometime on here. Everyone at Thanksgiving loved it.



I guess my post is just to update on how awesome everything has been since I went veg and I really owe a lot of it to this site. I had so many questions and they were all answered here and talking to like minded people really solidified my decision to go veg which in turn has inspired others.



So I guess I'm just saying thanks to everyone



peace & <3

There are so many posts about anti-veg'ism and so few great ones like this. You must be a really awesome person to have such a positive effect on so many people! Keep it up. :-)

that is awesome heather! Don't preach but rather attract,when people ask me how i lost 30 lbs i tell them veggie lifestyle change and exercise, people says i got my color back an I look healthy

You know who turned me on to being a vegetarian was sir paul mccartney, he is 67 and looks great. I also look at some celebrities who are vegetarians and see how they look good

great note,kep it up Mike
