So I'm not huge into the internet thing, but I figured this was a good way to get to know people who share my interests!<br><br><br><br>
I am a 20 year old female college student who has been a vegetarian for about 4 years now. I have just recently (and by recently I mean 3 weeks) become a vegan and I absolutely LOVE it! I wish that I could have other people feel how great I feel just so they know how beneficial veganism is! Anyway, because I'm fairly new to this and the more and more I get into it, the more and more curious I am as to foods to eat, recipes to try, and interesting facts, I need people I can learn from....insert this forum. I don't really know how to use it exactly, so any advice or how-tos would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
Start by reading the New to Vegetarianism thread, especially the Tip of the Day Thread. There's a ton of useful information about managing a vegan diet in that thread.<br><br><br><br>
Have fun reading! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

Welcome to VB.<br><br>
I wasn't real keen on forums either but turns out I can't find any other veges in person. You'll love it.<br><br>
Here's something I didn't figure out for ages. If you want to look back at the places you've posted recently to see if anyone's replied to anything you've said just click on your avatar and lots of helpful options will pop up.

Hi there, Welcome to VB!<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I feel exactly the same way!<br><br>
A couple people I know truly believe that I must be so unhappy living a vegan lifestyle and think I'm depriving myself (yeah, because besides animal products, there are no other sources of food!) and believe I'm making myself very unhealthy. Its frustraiting to no end when people who know absolutly nothing about your diet make these claims, and I just wish they could see how well I eat and take care of myself so they would realize that veganism is not at all extreme!<br><br>
Telling them how healthy I eat just hasn't got me anywhere, they are both eldery and seem to believe they know best <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wall.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wall:"><br><br><br><br>
See ya around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
