Yes it has been one year since I officially decided that I was going to be a vegetarian and started on this journey. I dont know the exact date, I just know it was at the end of October, possibly between the 21st and the 27th....<br><br>
Anyway it is strange looking back. What I can remember is my absolute determination to make it work. I bought a ton of vegetarian/vegan cookbooks in a fit of paranoia... I then started to obsessively peruse those books and try and cook a new vegetarian dish every few nights...<br><br>
I ate lots of eggs and cheese at first but after a while I realised I was quite happy with my meals being made up of vegetables, anyway I became a lot less reliant on them than I thought I would be, I have so many quiche recipes but I ended up only cooking one once...<br><br>
I am in a little bit of a rut right now, am looking to expand my repetoire even further, I did cook with tofu for the first time last week though...<br><br>
Anyway it has been fun, and that was not what I was expecting, I was expecting it to be hard but it so wasnt!!!!<br><br>
I did put a deal of hard work into it though.<br><br>
But anyway I want to thank you guys for helping me throughout my first year, this board has been pretty valuable.... : )<br><br>

Congrats, I am not sure when my one year one will be because I had a few setbacks since I joined because of stress and family related crap but,I am just picking my feel up off the ground and moving on and not worrying. Again congrats on your first year.

Cool. I was excited after I hit my one year mark too. It made me feel like I was "really" a vegetarian.<br><br>
So congratulations!<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/f/f8/f8d66ca0_vbattach16971.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/f/f8/525x525px-LL-f8d66ca0_vbattach16971.jpeg" style="width:308px;height:425px;"></a>

Thanks for the lovely song, Tom... : )<br><br>
Thanks Spoonerism. I guess in many ways I feel like a real vegetarian. It still feels kind of unreal though... I guess the point where I started to feel like a real vegetarian was when I bought my first vegan cookbook. That was about April.
