I happened upon this site while googling something. Yeah! I've been a vegetarian for 17 years now. My two kiddos are being raised vegetarian as well. Now if only I could get my hubby on board. He was raised with two food groups, mostly. Meat and Potatoes....maybe one day he'll come around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"> I use to live in Austin where if people weren't vegetarian, they often wanted to be. Now I live where the word is almost foreign. Not fun! So it's nice to meet you all and to have a community of vegetarians again.

Hi, I've seen you around these boards - good luck with it all! Sounds potentially hectic! How does your hubby feel about raising veg kids?

He was first reluctant, but then realized that there was no fighting me! That was with our first, a girl. Now with our boy he made a comment that he would eat meat when he got older, once again, that subject has been dropped. My husband is a wonderful cook (and fortunately for me doesn't mind making me vegetarian meals.) He used to think that who ever did the cooking could decide on what the kids would eat. I just don't see it that way. And since he really doesn't care what he eats, it only makes sense that we do it my way since I do. I wouldn't put something in my kid's mouth that I wouldn't put in my own. And after 1o years of marriage, he's learned that I'm very passionate about being vegetarian and it just really isn't worth a fight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Welcome! I'm originally from Houston, now stuck in Mississippi. I have a vegetarian 5 yr old son and omni husband. My husband is good about eating what I prepare, not complaining, and he really likes veg food! I wish he would become vegetarian, but I know he never will. My son is the only vegetarian I know. Veggieboards is great for me to have some comaraderie with other vegetarians. Glad to have you!
