I visited Birmingham in 2009 and let's just say I ate at a bunch of very un-veggie places (Jim 'N' Nicks or Dreamland ring a bell?) So I understand that the transition isn't easy since Alabama is not veggie-friendly at all. But you'll find a lot of great support here. ^_^

 

Have you considered associating with a vegetarian/vegan group? Birmingham (and the surrounding area) doesn't have many veggie groups. I conducted a search and this is what I could find:

 

http://www.meetup.com/Birmingham-Vegans/       You'd be able to meet people who have made the switch to meat-free and maybe they have connections to groups that I can't find via internet search.

 

From what I can find,  Birmingham does have a nice list of veg and veg-friendly restaurants: http://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/alabama/birmingham/

 

I'd suggest speaking with the managers of some of these restaurants (like Golden Temple for example) because they may have some connections to the vegetarian community you may not know about.

 

Good luck! If you need any assistance, please feel free to let me know!
