Hello all,<br><br><br><br>
I am new to the board and vegetarianism. Actually this is my first week in this lifestyle. I have always had a secret suspicion that man was meant to be vegetarian, even as I ate meat. I guess I just ignored what my body knew to be true. Another reason I have chosen to do this is because of weight issues. I have struggled with weight since I was a little girl. Probably the result of being brought up in an African America home where pork is considered a spice. Anyway, I am looking forward to soaking in all the information that can be found on this board. I can use all the help I can get. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/afro.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":afro:">

Welcome aboard - don't be shy here!<br><br><br><br>
Your line about pork being a spice made me chuckle - my grandmother in Tennessee cooked everything with a little bacon grease! I never knew what green beans tasted like until I cooked my own!

Welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> Congrats on making the switch to a veg diet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
About soaking it all in: You can start by checking the New to Vegetarianism forum - if you haven't done so already - especially the Tip of the Day Thread. The woman who started the thread has done an amazing amount of research and has put all that research together into a thread with a ton of good information on how to manage a vegetarian diet. Have fun reading! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

Welcome to VB. You're really getting into this, I didn't talk to any other veges for ages after I decided to stop eating meat. You'll find heaps of support here. Good luck!
