Hey there! I'm Jennie from Denver, Colorado. I first became a vegetarian when I was in high school. I was vegan for 3 months then became vegetarian for 9 months after. I defiantly didn't do it the right way. I moved from chicken nuggets to chips. I didn't eat healthy at all!<br><br>
I've decided to do it right this time! I'm eating fresh veggies and fruit, I try to make things from scratch with better ingredients. I decided to become a vegetarian again because of my health. I feel so much better without meat (although I have the occasional fish) and with little dairy. I have struggled with eating disorders in the past and hope to curb that by eating healthy.<br><br>
I'm getting married in less than 2 months. My fiance doesn't like me being a vegetarian because it "makes things harder for him". My fiance and I have lived together for 2 years now. He is a carnivore and loves to cook for me. He finds it hard that he has to make two meals (which is not true, just 2 proteins). I love him to death, but it's hard when he's not willing to accept it.<br><br>
I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you.

Hi, welcome to veggieboards, and thanks for the introduction.<br><br>
It must be difficult for you sometimes, living with someone who eats meat. Many members of the board have the same issues - fortunately I don't. Perhaps you can introduce him to veggie versions of meat - e.g veggie sausages, soya mince etc, and you can both enjoy the same meal together?<br><br>
You'll get plenty of advice on these forums, anyway! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
