Hello! I recently became a vegetarian (eat dairy but nothing with rennet, no fish/eggs) after about 15yrs eating meat. Before that I was born and raised a vegetarian until I branched out my freshmen year of high school. So, I'm coming back to the lifestyle as I feel it's healthier and respectful of the little animals
There are some spiritual reasons as well (sant mat anyone?) But just wanted to say hi to everyone and look forward to good conversations and exchanging of new ideas, recipes, and whatever else!

-Forrest

p.s. I'm in the Durham NC area

Welcome!



I was going to ask if you were lacto veg for Spiritual reasons or something else as soon as I read that you were.

You can imagine all the 'run Forrest run' I got since Forrest Gump came out! I even went so far as to put 'Gump #1' on my license plate :p

Ohhhh nooooo! :) I guess you do get some cool points for working at Duke Hospital. Ironic that you live in Durham and are a UNC fan and I lived in Charlotte and am a Duke fan.
I lived in Gastonia and Fort Mill, S.C. (basically suburbs of Charlotte).

Welcome! I live in Central Georgia, so I can understand where the South is not the easiest place to be veg, so this board has been awesome for helping me to keep my sanity so far.

I know you are, but what am I? A garbage man! I know you are, but what am I? Are we really degenerating into this?
