Hello to everyone on VeggieBoards, it is nice to meet you *shakes hands*. My name is Meghann and I am a vegetarian/vegan with some health issues and questions that maybe you can help me with in later posts.
I'm a stay at home jewelry-maker as I got too sick to work outside my home 4-1/2 years ago and figured, well, if I have to stay at home, I might as well be productive as my health allows. I started out with a gift of vintage pearls, but after finding out how they get to be in our hands, I'm trying not to use them and only use faux pearls and NO other animal components (like leather, ew) in my pieces. I like the challenge and rewards of knowing I'm not hurting anything in the process. Plus, I get to stay at home with my dog, who is very happy about the whole situation, thank you very much
I am looking to try and find new ways to cook old favorites so that my husband (who is not so keen on the veggie/vegan thing) will LOVE meals without meat so I don't even have to look at that section in the grocery store *shudder* Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, how to make sure I'm getting enough iron, as my doctor says I'm anemic and I *have* to eat meat. I say NO! I don't want to, so if you could help me out with that, I'd love you forever
I live in the middle of a HUGE forest in Merrickville, Ontario, Canada, and love to see all of the different birds flying around, the deer walk through my backyard, and the occasional fox or wild turkey try to slink by without anyone seeing them. I try to grow as much of our own organic veggies and fruits as I can, but I am currently fighting the battle of a lifetime with some seriously invasive weeds. Still, I got 3 whole strawberries this year (from new plants) and they were the best I've ever tasted.
I really look forward to meeting you all and talking food, fun and love and respect for animals and the environment
