Hi everyone! I found this board last week and was pretty excited about it.....just wanted to introduce myself, as I hope to make some new friends here.
After years of thinking about it and loving the idea but thinking I could never do it, I finally stopped eating meat last week. So far, it has been pretty easy.......which is amazing, because I was raised eating lots of meat and very few veggies, so I don't like many of them. I am trying to keep an open mind and try all kinds of new things.
So far the toughtest part has been that I live in the boonies of western Maryland and it is difficult to find alot of vegetarian items. I discovered there is a great food co-op in Morgantown, WV, about an hour away, so I guess I'll be going there alot!
I would love to hear from anyone else who is a new vegetarian, or anyone with more experience who has tips and advice!
