Hola everyone!!!!

I am another longtime lurker on VB. I had another screenname and forgot it sometime ago and rarely used it so here I am again back for good. I'm a vegetarian again after giving it up a couple months. I was a vegetarian that went cold turkey for a year and now I'm back to do things the right way. I'd like to thank all the posters you all post alot of informative stuff that can help people. Thanks and see you around!

Welcome to VB! (officially)

Steve (beforewisdom), our nutritional welcome-wagon volunteer, is unable to be here at this time; however, I have his permission to take over his duties whenever necessary. Here is what he tells our newbies:

Vegan Outreach has a stellar starter kit.

Please do not let the word "vegan" in it scare you.

The information applies just as much to vegetarians as

vegans. Just add milk and eggs if that is what you are into.

Vegan Outreach will mail you a very nice printed copy for

free. You can also download a pdf version for free or read

it on the web for free.

The kit includes unique and thoughtful essays by

Vegan Outreach founder Matt Ball that will help you

make vegetarianism a rewarding and lasting commitment.

It has a better recipe section than most starter kits that

I have seen. Best of all it also has an up to date,

complete, easy to understand, and brief nutrition section by

Jack Norris, a vegan Registered Dietician.

Assuming you have a solid reason for starting veg*nism

the two best things you can do to make your commitment to it

last are to learn good nutrition and to learn to cook a small

set of recipes you really like.

Here is the URL:


Vegan Outreach also hosts a web site of health articles

for people on plant based diets:


Be careful of whom you take nutrition advice from on the web.

There are a number of web mavens who sound as if they know what

they are talking about and they really don't.

Learn to ask people how they know what they know.

Animal Rights sites, even some of the more well known names are known for

giving out of date or incomplete information on vegetarian nutrition.

If you are interested in more information I have articles and descriptions

of books by well known, well respected, and well credentialed authorities

on my web site at:
