Hello everyone, I recently became a vegetarian, (4 - 4 - 03) and I'm loving it!! I started doing lots of research and discovered I needed meat like I needed (another) hole in my head! I hadn't been eating much meat lately anyway, so I gave it up overnight, no problem. I've always loved animals, and the last thing I want is for the critters to suffer for NO reason at all, not to mention the environmental reasons behind my decision.... But I guess I'm preaching to the converted. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Anyway, I did some veg surfing and came across these boards, and just HAD to join, because it's really hard to find people I can relate to, you know? I've had quite a hard time meeting anyone who believes a fish is a animal. LOL. Go figure.<br><br><br><br>
I look forward to getting to know all of you!!<br><br><br><br>
See ya!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

hello grain _girl! I've been a vegetarian for about 18 years and a vegan for almost 13. i complete understand the need to be around others who "get it". me: i'm a vegan which means i'm a vegatarian that doesn't consume milk or eggs, etc. them: so do you eat fish? so annoying.<br><br><br><br>
welcome.

Hi grain-girl, I'm still a relative newbie to the veg world... about 4 months. It is much easier once you find like-minded people...

But fish *is* a vegetable, silly girl.<br><br><br><br>
Ahem. Yes, it is nice to be amongst those who can tell the difference between plants and animals. Glad you passed the entrance exam.<br><br><br><br>
Have fun posting!<br><br><br><br>

Thanks for your welcomes guys! It's nice to find people I can relate to! You mean there is a difference between a fish and a carrot? What a concept! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Hi grain_girl <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Personally, I tend to like multigrain foods. All unrefined grains are good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yep! The only male in my life is orange and furry, and for some reason, I just don't think that counts. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I think half the time I go out to a restaurant and ask about their vegetarian selection, they ask me if I eat fish - which is particularly horrible to me since I'm very allergic!<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, welcome grain_girl <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

i've been veggie for 2 years now. Best thing i ever did. looking back i don't know how i ever ate flesh, i guess i was just conditioned to eat it from childhood. Finally i got the message though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Even if you do miss meat there are so many meat substitutes out there that there is really no excuse.<br><br>
Save the animals and save your health!
