Hello people of veggieboards!<br><br>
My name is Sarah, and I'm from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. I've been Vegan since the new year of 2011, although I have been slowly transitioning since September 2010. Before that I was vegetarian since a few days before Easter 2010, and I had cut red meat out of my diet for 6 years prior to that.<br><br>
It was a rather easy transition for me, going cold "tofurky" for every transition I made. It's the best way to do it, I think.<br><br>
I have made my choice to go Vegan for moral reasons, basically, but the logic in me also sees how pointless eating meat, dairy and eggs are, when you can acquire the same nutrition in a plant-based diet.<br><br>
Also as someone who loves the natural Earth, I felt good having a more eco-friendly diet. The bonus of course is the health benefits, and hopefully it will help me lose the extra pounds I need to lose (on top of regular exercise of course!).<br><br>
I have already lost 20 pounds since going vegetarian last year, but I also joined a good gym around the same time, so I'm not sure which is working better, but I do feel a lot healthier!<br><br>
I love to read and write and I love watching/reading anything in the science fiction genre, so you could call me a nerd, I guess.<br><br>
I have a veg*n blog that I'm working on, which I would love to share with everyone. It's called <a href="http://theapplerunner.com" target="_blank">AppleRunner</a>. At the moment there are more vegetarian related things than Vegan, because I started it when I was just vegetarian. I hope to add more Vegan related articles soon. I have one up already sharing my favourite vegan blogs, so check it out if you're interested!<br><br>
I love to cook and try out new vegan recipes or products, and I could talk about Veganism all day which is why I joined VB. I am already part of two forums that are somewhat vegetarian-related, but I wanted to be part of an even bigger forum, with more topics and people to talk to. I just can't get enough of Veganism.<br><br>
I look forward to meeting and chatting with all of you!<br><br>
Sarah.
