I just wanted to jump in and say "hi"! I'm new to the forum and have been a vegetarian for a short while(2 years). Living in Louisiana, it is hard to explain to people why you don't eat seafood or barbeque of any kind. They just give you a 'blank" look. I do have to say that finally many of the restaurants here are trying to be sure they offer meals that don't include meat.



It is certainly nice to find a place where there will be no "blank" looks!

Welcome to the VeggieBoards!



I understand about the BBQ thing! I'm in the central Mississippi area & get the same blank looks.



I just say it is for my HEALTH and let it go at that.

Welcome to VB.

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

Hi Terry! Where do you live? I grew up in Lake Charles and fought my way out of there, including with my food choices. Welcome!

The Big Bad.
