Hello!<br><br>
New member here. My name is Alex and I've been a vegetarian for almost a year. This week I just made the next big step: becoming vegan!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

I've heard that it is difficult to be vegan in Romania? Would you agree?

Absolutely not. It's very easy. Regarding the availability of products it's just like in the UK or any country in the western Europe. I buy my food offline, fruits, vegetables, soy milk, tofu cheese and so on but I found it easier to buy house cleaning and personal care products online (vegan stuff is kinda hard to find in regular shops, although you can easily find a lot of bio/organic products). Dining out can be as easy or as difficult as in other countries, it depends on the place you go. A big bonus is the period in which people fast for religious reasons (orthodox christians) - sometimes for weeks - and the market gets flooded with vegan food. :)

Welcome to VB! I'm not sure if you are interested in connecting with other local vegetarians in Romania, but there's a branch of the Vegetarian Society in your country. A friend of mine from several years ago organized a group and created a website. He lives in the capital, and his name is Marius Cristian Vasilescu... I think. We've been out of contact for awhile.

Thank you! I'm not that much into connecting but I follow their activities online, I even got - through them - a good deal on a book when I became vegetarian.
