My name is Melinda. I have been transitioning my family to vegetarianism since last summer. I was inspired by my oldest daughter (who is 24) after she started the Eat to Live program for health reasons. She is now vegan and I hope to follow. Even before this we ate mostly veggie meals.<br><br><br><br>
My husband is very much on board. My 21 year old still lives at home while attending school and she is not so supportive. I also have an 11 year old boy and he eats his vegetables.<br><br><br><br>
I work in special education. I love to cook and we have a large garden and fruit trees. We live in Southern California.<br><br><br><br>
This looks like a great place to come to for inspiration and information!

Welcome!<br><br>
I wish my family were as supportive to my vegetarianism as you seem to be =)<br><br>
Good luck in transitioning! VB is a great place for veg*ans to feel "normal" and understood. (Veg*ans stands for vegans and vegetarians btw.)
