Hi everyone. I've been browsing the boards for a few days now, but today is my first official day as a vegan. I've been cutting down on meat for awhile now, but am going straight from omni to vegan. I've never been a fan of dairy and egg anyway. My main motivation is love of animals, I can no longer bring myself to use them to satisfy my dietary needs. I've already learnt so much and am eagerly anticipating more, especially building up a recipe collection. See you all out there on the forum!

Congrats I cut out cheese and eggs a week or so ago. It's easier than the first time I tried.

Thanks, congrats to you too! Cheese and eggs have never been among my favourites.

Congrats on the vegan thing. I have enjoyed it. The most challenging thing is hanging out at non-vegan houses as none of my friends are not vegans.

Welcome to VB and congratulations on doing the right thing.



I'm sure you will find many great recipes on here and in my opinion, lentils are vastly under-rated. They are gorgeous.



Kind Regards,



Gary

Hey, welcome! I went from omni to vegan too. I can be challenging and don't beat yourself up if you make some mistakes along the way. Veganism is a journey.

Hello and thank you. I feel good about making the decision. Lentils happen to be one of my favourite sources of protein.

Hi there! Thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying my hardest not to let mistakes throw me completely off the wagon. I know I need to forgive myself and get back on track ASAP. Veganism is not about perfection, but striving to do the best we can at any given time.
