Glad to join a vegetarain forum were i assume yall love animals almost as much as me(almost lol) I have been thinking quite a lot about going vegan. It seems so hard though. i knew one girl who out of the whole thanksgiveing dinner all she could eat was a yam with cinnimin. so being that is the only one ive ever known im a bit wary of diveing in. I hope yall can give me some good advice on the topic.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> Welcome to VB! I went vegan cold tofurky and if I had it to do over again, I probably would have taken it a bit slower. I would suggest sticking around here, browsing the different threads and doing some research first. It's one thing to say, ok, I'm not going to have any more dairy/eggs, etc. But I found out there are a lot of hidden ingredients in things that I knew nothing about. Once you become familiar with everything it's quite easy. You will get to know what you can and can't have. Good luck! And welcome again!

Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
Eating vegetarian or even vegan isn't too difficult if you stick mostly to whole foods such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and nut butters and beans. I strongly suggest you read this thread: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=50249&page=8" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...t=50249&page=8</a><br><br><br><br>
It's amazingly useful and helpful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I only have two cats, at the moment, since my mouse died recently. My fiance has a dog and a cat. But hopefully, one day I too shall have a laundry list of animals sharing my home.<br><br><br><br>
I'm glad to see that somebody else is as transfixed by the dancing produce as I am. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/pibo.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":pibo:">

Welcome! I used to have fish too! The plecos were one of my favs in the fish tank. I only have a dog and a turtle now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
It always makes me glad to see so many young people who are vegetarian! I believe it makes a difference. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"> See you around the boards! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:">
