Hello all!<br><br><br><br>
Long time lurker first time poster...just thought I'd introduce myself (finally)!<br><br><br><br>
My real name is Gabe but the screen name sam o nela has been mine since AOL 1.0 lol...<br><br><br><br>
Anyhow....I have been a vegetarian (ovo) for 7 years now. I started at 17 and I love the healthy eating style and great recipes that come along with it! Diabetes and high blood pressure run in my family so hopefully I am doing something to help me avoid that in the future.<br><br><br><br>
I recently married an Omnivore (after dating for 5 years <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> ) and she has become quite accustomed to eating healthy and meatless and loves it as well...I also think she loves the fact that I do 90% of the cooking!<br><br><br><br>
Im so glad there is a board for vegetarians, as (aside from my wife and close family) I have never had much support for my lifestyle choice. Being Hispanic and living in a predominantly Hispanic area, I have always felt "chastised" and "looked down upon" (DARE I say discriminated!?) by my culture and my community.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you all and very nice to meet you!!

Welcome to the boards, Gabe! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> I can only imagine your struggle with culture and community support when it comes to vegetarianism. You don't have to worry about finding support here - there's plenty of it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:">
