Hi there everyone. Been a long time lurker of VB
, thought I had better finally say hello.
OK, I admit it, I'm just posting because I want to get rid of Michael's face above the forums. Don't get me wrong Michael, you're a handsome guy and all that, but I feel we are getting too familiar and you haven't even bought me a drink yet. Slow down man.
So, er.. about me. I had always been an ignorant omni until my two little boys were born and I reflected more on my morals and how I affected the world around me. Became a strict vegetarian for moral and ethical reasons in Jan 2011, and after reaping the incredible health benefits, and realising the terrible cost to the world of the inefficient, wasteful, polluting, largely inhumane and unethical meat industry, am now working towards being completely animal free.
It's not an easy journey but very rewarding in every way. Alongside the support of my wonderful "veggie-but-reluctant-to-commit-to-using-the-label" wife, VB
has helped me a lot over the past few months, even if I have been hiding in the shadows, so thank you to all the very knowledgeable people on here.
I'll miss you, Michael's face.
edit: He's gone but 20 seconds... and I already feel the emptiness...
