Hey, all!!!



I'm new to the board and to committing to a veg/vegan lifestyle! Why turn my back on the McD's drive throughs and bacon and egg breakfasts that have gotten me this far? Basically, I am sick of feeling like crap and eating mindlessly without actually considering the source of what is on my plate? I could never hunt...or even poison a mouse...so how can I justify putting the end result in my mouth. Blech!!!

Yay for you! Here's to your good health.

So you made it through day 1. How many more days do you have to stick with this???

Welcome to VB. It's neat when people make that connection between the killing of animals and the eating of animals. Good on you.

Welcome!



Most people I know aren't vegetarian. They don't give me flak about what I eat, and are actually supportive, but it's nice to have a place where you can dialogue with others who really embrace it.
