Are you trying to go vegan? I agree its a bit hard! I have been off staight eggs for at least a year, i dont use them in cooking either, but the dairy is hard, i am to the point where it is just in prepared foods, ( like some of the morningstar farms stuff i buy), same with egg whites are usually in some of these products, or when i eat out, you will get lots of good advice from people here though, hang in there, like everyone here says every little bit helps and counts!

i mean that it is hard to see/meet another vegan<br><br>
i don't know any and whenever i think someone might possibly be even vegetarian i then see them eating meat and just feel a little bit disappointed<br><br><br><br>
nevermind

I've never met a vegan in person. I have a vegan friend on another message board that I chat with from time to time.<br><br><br><br>
I've met several vegetarians in real life.

Oh, is that all. It's really very easy. Vegans are the dead sexy good looking people scrutinizing the ingredient lists of various products in grocery stores. Next time you see one go up and say hi. Don't be shy. Everyone knows vegans don't bite. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Me too. Or so I thought. I found out later they both ate fish. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"><br><br><br><br>
I think we should invent a secret vegan handshake. Just 'cuz that's cool.<br><br><br><br>

Diet/food is the last thing you should worry about to accomodate your lifestyle.<br><br><br><br>
You'll meet someone who is vegan eventually.. join a meetup or something.

*chuckle* When I lived in Whole Foods territory, I would sometimes wonder about the veganicity of my fellow customers when waiting in line. I mean, when someone has a basket of fruits/veggies, fake tuna salad, some SoyDelicious and VegNews magazine...you wonder. I never took the chance to ask though. :p

Go to a health food store like Whole Foods (if there's one around you). I've been there twice, and the first time I saw a couple people who I was pretty sure were vegans (a man with a bunch of Edensoy and fruits & veggies, a lady skimming the ingredients in these chips who had some vegan cheese), and the second time I saw a couple eating some tofu and grabbing some vegan cheese off the shelf. I was too shy to talk to them, and they were a bit older than me.<br><br><br><br>
Find vegan restaurants/bakeries/etc. near you. You're bound to meet someone there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I always thought it was taking 5 minutes to read the ingredients in every single item we put in our carts.<br><br><br><br>
Hey! Shes reading ingredients! "Are you a vegan? do you like hommus? huh? want to get married and have lots of vegan babies?????"

I know lots of vegans and vegetarians. My sister is a vegan, my mom is a vegetarian, my doctor is a vegetarian, my sister in law is a vegetarian, my husband is a vegetarian, my sister's boyfriend is a vegan. There are some others, but you get the point.

Can't you get a t-shirt or a button or something that says 'Shout if you're vegan - i want friends' Kind of like a bumper sticker. You could wear it when you walk around the supermarket and hope someone stops you.<br><br><br><br>
I know a few vegans. Cant say many of them are my favorite people on earth though. I personally dont see the point of wanting exclucive vegan friends. It seems pretty dull to me, you're potentially ruling some great people out of your life, just for the sake of their lifestyle choice being different to yours.

I work in an all natural organic food store, and I always pay attention to what people are buying to figure out whos vegan. I work in checkout so its pretty easy. theres really not a lot though, theres a lot of people who will buy soy milk and earth balance, and then pull yogurt or eggs or something from the cart. I always want to ask them why they arent vegan when there shopping lists are sooo close. I cant hate them too bad though because the only dairy and meat we sell is free range, grass fed, local organic stuff (I live in Vermont, theres tons of little organic dairy farms). I guess if you insist on eating it its a slightly better way to go.

I don't think that's what the OP was intending, just that it's hard to spot a vegan. We're sort of like cylons in that way.

Frankly, I like my disquise. Middle-aged, reading glasses, with at least one Chihuahua in my fabric purse - nope, I hardly ever get "wow! are you a vegan?!?".

Yes i understand that. It's just a feeling i get from a lot of vegans, that they want only vegan friends because vegans are better etc. Just a small annoyance i have. Sorry.
