Wonderful resource. Thank you for taking the time! Also, I was wondering if you could add a link to sites that help follow what you are eating and calculate everything out for you? I was coming here this morning to post and ask for a link to something like that. I know I saw someone post a link but for the life of me cannot remember where.

i've stuck this, cos it seems like a very handy resource. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Cali Girl: fitday might be the sorta thing you mean? <a href="http://www.fitday.com/" target="_blank">http://www.fitday.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
... i think ethical stuff would be fine- some things don't apply to everyone, but you can always take it or leave it (for example, i'd skip the religion stuff myself).<br><br><br><br>
as well as links to product lines, maybe links to bodies that certify them- like the leaping bunny, caring consumer.. that kinda thing might be good too.

AWESOME IT'S BEEN STICKIED! (That's not a word, is it? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">)<br><br>
Thanks for the feedback, guys. ^_^<br><br><br><br>
Ah alrighty. I was all over-worried about that stuff, since there are differences with vegans and vegetarians, and I'm pretty passive and usually the peacekeeper with things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
I originally didn't think about including religion-related links (since I'm not religious, that just goes over my head), but on another website I visit, there were quite a few questions about veg*nism and religion. There were also teenagers asking if it's ok, since their parents think it might be against it (Christian/Jewish) for whatever reason. So I figured I might as well add them since a fair amount of veg*ns and future veg*ns are religious. So if I have that stuff, I might as well add ethical links. (Makes sense)<br><br><br><br>
Yes yes, those would be good to add. I'll get them all on there in the morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Wonderful links, thank you. I'm going back to the basics and doing my research all over again to get me back on track and away from processed veg*n foods and this is exactly what I was looking for, links!
