I thought this might make a few people around here happy to hear...

I am going to try out vegan eating.

I am going to start with being a weekday vegan to avoid awkwardness with weekend activities. We'll see where it goes from there. I am nearing almost a year from the time I started being a vegetarian, so I think now is a fitting time to try vegan-style eating.


Wish me luck. Finding vegetarian foods has become second nature to me over the past year and I'm sure it could be that way for me eventually if I cut out dairy and eggs.

I started easing into a vegan diet after being a vegetarian for about a year as well. I am so glad that I did it!

Good luck!

So true! I was a vegetarian for ages before going vegan, and when I did it I did it really slowly. I tried going cold tofurky a few times at first but that's just not how my brain works, I need to ease into things or I don't stick with it. So then I was a strict vegetarian for about 6 months and ate mostly vegan except for a few cheese binges, and then everything just fell into place. I was getting a lot of support from Veggieboards and I had met some vegan friends in real life and I petted some real live dairy cows, there was no going back at that point, it really does become second nature. Now I' just think: "I really used to eat cheese?"


In the end I don't think there is a right or wrong way to do it, YOU know what works best for you. Congratulations on making such an awesome decision!

OT: The title of this thread reminds me of Burger King's slogan
and I assumed this thread was going to be about Burger King.

It can be a little tedious, but I've always manage to get something. I ask for pasta with a simple tomato/veggie sauce, fries, salad, pizza without cheese, baked potato with veggies. And that's for places that aren't too accomodating to vegans

I usually try to go with pizza without cheese, many places have pizza.

Ethnic restaurants are easy. I try to go for ethnic or vegan when possible, but just about anywhere can make you something. You just have to be a little creative with what's available.
