Hi,<br>
My name is Lauren, Im 24. I just joined but I have been a vegetarian for quite some time. I am pregnant and my fiance and I are raising our family vegetarian and organic but this has brought some friction up on my side of the family. And considering I don't know any other vegetarians besides my fiance im trying to search out some support from my fellow veggies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Any advice on how to get my family (especially my grandparents) to understand?

You are doing it right! You're lucky your fiance is with you on that! I wish I had been veg when my kids were little.<br>
Look up the Relationships and Family for more help.<br>
Good you're here!

Well, you just ran into more veg*n than you can shake a stick at, although I'm not sure why you would want to shake a stick at us, or if that would even occur to you. Anyway, hello and welcome the forum.

Thank you Silva! I am very fortunate that he is, luckily when we meet he was a vegetarian and I decided on it after trying vegan and vegetarian food. Do you have troubles getting your kids to eat vegetarian or vegan meals now?

Thank you new england vegan! And I would never dream of treating vegans like pinatas lol! Though the thought occurs often around family that thinks chicken is a vegetable....*sigh of disappointment*
