hello all! i am brand spanking new here....and i can no longer ignore the gnawing in my brain that has been telling me to cut out meat from my and my family's diet....the PETA KFC video just pushed me over the edge and i found myself in tears and yelling at everyone about poor chickens...i think they all thought i was crazy, but my hubbie is supportive of this decision and my kids are eager..as always LOL<br><br><br><br>
we've been trying to bypass all the nasty stuff in the world that is out there for our consumption...we've cut out fast food, sodas, sweets....man, that was hard. but i honestly didn't think it was enough and have not been able to focus on much since deciding to take the plunge. i have so many questions and this move to 'veggie' has really consumed me lately.<br><br><br><br>
i just wanna say thank you to those who have helped me out so far. i really appreciate it!!! i'm excited about getting to know more about you all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

hey!<br><br><br><br>
good luck with your new path- my fiance is vegan and allergic to most of what he doesnt eat, so i have been getting used to cutting things like eggs and dairy from my baking, breakfasts, and snacking- it's a bit of a shift, but since i have been vegetarian since i was born, it hasnt been to hard!<br><br><br><br>
let me know if i can help- i am very good at finding alternatives to certain ingredients and identifying hidden animal sources in foods, thanks to joshua's influence!<br><br><br><br>
love-<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:">
