  1. Vegetarian Support Forum
    Hello, I have been vegetarian for a few years, I started when I was a teenager and now I am 20. At the start, I would still accidentally eat products not suitable for vegetarians as I did not realise at that point how careful I'd need to be. For example, I had this bread product a lot when I...
  2. Animal Rights and Welfare
    I went vegan 3 days ago and stopped eating meat almost a week ago. All animals are my baby's no matter how small. So far the change has been easy but my family may give me a hard time sometimes. It is a myth that we need to eat meat. I am an adult who can make my own choice's and my choice;s are...
  3. Vegetarian Support Forum
    Hi there everyone! I'm a pretty peaceful vegetarian and like to keep to myself, meaning I don't push my lifestyle onto others, so I feel like in a way I deserve the same respect. My family, despite knowing I've been a vegetarian for a year now, continue to say and do obliviously rude things and...
  4. Vegan Support Forum
    Hi Veggie Boards, My name is Angus Chen. I'm a reporter with NPR/National Public Radio (you can see a list of recent work at wnyc.org/people/angus-chen). I'm working on a story right now about people, particularly young people, switching to a vegan or vegetarian or another diet (paleo...
  5. Transitioning to Vegan
    Apologies, this is likely to be long. The TL;DR version is, as I say at the very end: How much does one share with others about a decision to transition to veganism? Did you include others in your thought process as you started going vegan, or did you just do it quietly? I'm wondering if just...
  6. Vegetarian Support Forum
    So I am 14 years old and have decided to go vegetarian. Currently, however, I am forced to eat fish by my parents and my doctor. On my next visit to the doctor, I am to decide wether I want to keep eating fish or not. I had decided right away that I wouldn't eat fish, but my mother is really...
  7. Vegan Support Forum
    I'm supposed to go to a dinner with my family and family friends in two weeks, and the dad in the other family made a reservation for a sushi restaurant... They don't know I'm vegan, so it's obviously not their fault, but I'm conflicted on what to do... Sushi restaurants almost always use the...
  8. Vegan Support Forum
    Hi everyone! My fiancé and I recently reached an understanding about our diet, that was basically we will be 100% vegan at home, and I'm not comfortable with any animals products in the house, and he understood that. One of my main reasons is because I don't want those products around my 5 year...
  9. Vegan Support Forum
    So I went vegan about half a year ago (previously vegetarian for 8 years), no slip ups at all, ever since I became aware of the harm that meat and dairy consumption does to our bodies, the animals and the environment. My mother has had breast cancer (it runs in our family) and has survived for 6...
  10. Raising Vegetarian Children
    Hi guys! So I am transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, and my fiancé and my 5 year daughter are transitioning to a plant-based diet. We recently watched Forks over Knives and my which made my fiancé agree to go on the diet. I talked with my daughter and showed her a few videos on YouTube by...
  11. Vegan Support Forum
    After being sick with various illnesses* my entire adult life (23 - 41 years old), and after my Mom's breast cancer diagnosis, I decided to be plant-based (entirely no animal products at all) for health reasons in July of 2015. I have noticed a huge difference in my health and my energy levels...
  12. Vegan Support Forum
    My father is against my decision to be a vegan. He thinks it's fine for me to care about animals, the environment, and my health, but he doesn't think me going strictly vegan in social situations is going to solve any animal rights or environmental issues and he thinks that if it's for health...
  13. Vegan Support Forum
    :eek: My wife tried Veganism for a while but felt like she needed the iron from meat. She feels a strong need to eat animal products (especially cheese) but she's allergic to dairy so she eats Daiya. Any tips to satisfy the iron craving from meat? Any good Vegan substitutes for eggs? I would...
  14. Vegetarian Support Forum
    Hey everyone! I'm on vacation with my fiancees family who all rely pretty heavily on meat at their meals, and don't seem to believe veg*an meals can be brilliant without it. There is 10 of us in total with each household taking turns cooking fancy dinners night by night. It's our turn to cook...
  15. Relationships and Family
    Not sure if this fits here, but tonight I decided to make dinner for my omni husband and father-in-law. I made the Immunity-Boosting Tomato Sauce with Mushrooms from The Oh She Glows Cookbook (recipe online here) with some plain old linguine noodles. It's simple but I thought it would be better...
  16. Relationships and Family
    Well, i have been vegan for almost a year now. Home has pretty much been hell. And i honestly don't know how much more i can take. I have always had issues dealing with my brother, but even more so now. He says the most horrible things about animals. he jokes about eating animals, and it just...
  17. Transitioning to Vegetarian
    Hello, I'm G.J a 13 year old girl who would like to become a vegetarian, I told one of my friends I want to become a vegetarian but she said "Oh really. But your so skinny you need meat" Like i'm very skinny, and small for my age, and everyone is always giving me food and meat but I don't like...
  18. Vegetarian Support Forum
    Hi all Hope I won't get shot down for posting here again, I have posted here about something similar some time ago. I desperately want to be vegetarian for ethical reasons, but never seem to be able to stick to it. I know, that to some of you who may read this, you could think, "well you...

    I notice that the vegan section on this site is PRETTY OUTDATED. The last post to it was in 2013. Maybe this site has perished a bit since I last visited? Either way, the family and I (vegans, ethical) are moving to Portland from Salem on the 1st of July....PLEASE let me know where the good...
  20. Transitioning to Vegetarian
    Hi! So recently, I've started to look into where my meat really comes from. I watched "Earthlings" which was heartbreaking and than decided to read "Eating Animals", which opened my eyes to factory farming. Ultimately, all of my research has led me to the conclusion that I want to become a...
