Hi, my name is Julie. I'm 20 years old and live in Spokane, Washington (ugh).<br><br>
A couple of months ago, I decided to become vegan after being vegetarian for quite some time. I'm very happy that I did, as it seems completely natural to me, and I wonder why I waited so long. I'm happy to find this board for information and idea sharing, etc.<br><br>
I have one (silly) question: is there any significance in using "veg*n" as opposed to "vegan" ? It doesn't seem so, but I just wanted to be sure.<br><br>
Anyway, hi to everyone!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Huh?<br><br><br><br>
Veg*n includes vegans and vegetarians. For instance - "Veg*ns don't eat meat."<br><br><br><br>
