My friend just told me that she's been vegetarian for two months! I said, "Wow, why didn't you tell me?" and her response was that she felt like she was experimenting with it and wasn't sure if it would stick. Which I can totally relate to; I didn't tell anyone at first for the same reasons. I didn't want everyone holding their breath for me to fail.

It's funny, I guess I never noticed the change in her diet because I just thought she was putting out special food for me.
Last time we cooked out at her house there was meat there; I just didn't notice that she wasn't one of the people eating it.

Anyway, I told her, "Two months! That's a lot, that's a huge accomplishment." And generally praised her to the moon. I think there's an excellent probability that she'll continue with it, because she's a huge animal lover and one of the few people I know who have long said they "wished they could" do it. If so, it'll be nice to finally have a veg*n friend.

I think I'll cook her a big, fat vegan celebration dinner!

Good for her and good for you.

I have yet to make a veggie friend IRL (the closest I have come is a girlfriend who doesn't eat red meat).

My daughter (the anti-vegan) recently committed to not eating pork - I was floored at her bravery.......

Now I just have to get her to hook up her computer, so she can meet all of you wonderful people! Now that's a support system.

what was it that led her to this (wonderful) decision?
I believe it's her way of taking a baby step for my sake. She's only 15, so I haven't pushed her. I do have Meet Your Meat and A Cow at my Table on order. I want to watch them with her and then discuss. I just don't want to cause any trauma I shouldn't (she might become some psycho - then they'd be talking about the whako veggie mom who brainwashed her kid on 60 minutes....).
