You are welcome...but...

Since you are still eating chicken and fish you are not technically a vegetarian. If you are planning to eliminate those from your diet, then that would make you a vegetarian. If not, then I'm afraid you violated the TOS by registering here.

Sorry about that.

Yeah. Don't expect much of a welcome from some people. Unless you are planning on cutting out chicken and fish. Welcome to VB.

The longest time I thought it was OK to eat poultry, and fish. My sister gave me the book:Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, & Inhumane Treatment Inside the U.S. Meat Industry by Gail A. Eisnitz. This book has graphic pictures, and text. The imagery used in this book, really does the trick.

I am a newbie too, welcome to VB!

Welcome to VB! I'm in Alberta.

I'm glad you're choosing to reduce your meat consumption. For alot of people, becoming a vegetarian is a slow process.

Some people here are really picky about labels, so just make sure not to call yourself a vegetarian until you actually stop eating animals.

But please feel welcome. Being here is a great way to learn how to eat an animal free diet! Everytime you choose a meatless meal, you are doing a wonderful thing for yourself, for the environment and, of course, for the animals!
