hello all!! my husband and i have for many years been almost vegetarian. we have recently chosen to eliminate all flesh, dairy and eggs from our diets. our diet in the past has always made us stand out from friends and family. now making this conversion is only going to contribute to the way they view us. they all would act as if we were abusing our children based on what we werent feeding them!! we are really hoping to connect with other like minded folks. this looks like a good place to do just that!!

I grew up in the Midwest (Nebraska), so I know the mentality you're talking about. Hang in there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> And welcome to the VeggieBoards!

I am from Cleveland. I understand too, the emphasis on fat dripping, melted concoctions of three different kinds of red meat, preferably in sausage form in this region. If you live in the city proper, hopefully there are some likeminded individuals out there.<br><br><br><br>
Welcome!

Talking with like minded people is why I joined as well. I'm located 4 hours south of you in what could be described as a rural community even though technically it's a city (a small one at that). I needed to be influenced by those in the veg community and since my wife and I are the only vegans (to our knowledge) in our town; I decided to post here. Thus far I have enjoyed the experience. On this board we are all aware of the mindset in others we must strive to overcome on a near daily basis.<br><br><br><br>
Fortunately, that mindset doesn't exist here. You are among friends. Enjoy your stay.

Smedley,<br><br>
Congrats on finding a veg refuge! I really like it here. It's such a breath of fresh veg*n air since I know only a very small handful of veg*ns in real life.

Yeah, can you imagine biting into a nice juicey sausage?? No for me I never could. the way that the skin and what ever else would bite you back in the face with its greases, just grossed me our constantly. and to think of "natural casings" just grosses me out as well. natural casings!! come on were are talking pig intestine. and then to think of all the fat grossing into my mouth with every bite of these sausages. PLEASE let me bite into something vegetable.
