Hello everyone, just joined today. I'm probably mostly going to be here for the recipes and I see there's a UK section so maybe I'll be able to get tips on sourcing ingredients too but it looks as if there are lots of other things to read while I'm here.


A little about me: I've been vegetarian for 28 years but in general I haven't thought much further than if it isn't dead it's OK. However a couple of months ago I read a newspaper article about Dr Neal Barnard and since then I've been looking at the subject of low fat plant based diets online and I've started to move away from all the dairy, eggs and processed food that was previously the basis for what I was eating. There's still some to be used up but I'm aiming to come up with better alternatives rather than replacing them.


Years ago I always thought of vegan food as being dull and worthy but - hooray - it turns out I was very wrong! I'm really enjoying doing some proper cooking again and the internet is a wonderful thing - how annoying is it that I've been buying quorn mince and sausages for years without knowing that you could make them from a bag of bread flour lol My son (8) is pretty keen on all the new home cooked food but my daughter (6) still needs more convincing. They have always eaten vegetarian food at home so I hope to show them how good plant based foods can be so they will want to choose that path for themselves.

Welcome to Veggieboards. I've been vegetarian for almost 58 years. My wife and children (adult now) are vegetarian too.

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

Hi BH and welcome to VeggieBoards. I feel I should have gone vegan years earlier too, but the main thing is that we got there.:up:
