Hello! I was a veggie for around 5 years, then vegan for one year. I was growing, and became grossly anemic because I wasn't doing it the right way. So, I started to eat meat/dairy again. I ended up almost doubling my size because of the nasty hormones in our foods. Just recently I have decided to become veggie again [with some vegan tendancies], and I'm doing it much more healthily; the right vitamins, the right balance of nutrients, not just cutting out animal products. I have gobs of recipes around here, that I will be sharing as I find them! :Þ

Thanks for having this community here. So far it seems very nice & accepting, and I like that. Yay!

Hello fellow veggie girls! I've a struggling vegetarian, but determined to become a fully fledge vegetarian and lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. My reasons for becoming a vegetarian, are several.

1). I hate the smell of meat, the look of meat, the texture of meat.
2). The fat and unhealthiness of fatty meats.
3). The "cruelty" of killing animals, I know its so easy to go to the supermarket and pick up a chicken breast or whatever. But IF I had to kill the animal myself, I wouldn't do it, and therefore I think I should be a vegetarian.
4). There are so many wonderful vegetables out there to eat and celebrate.
5). I am not a fan of meat substitutes, especially as they make me ill, TVP, tofu...
6). I guess I am more vegan than vegetarian, as I am beginning to have severe intolerance to milk products that are making me quite ill.

This community is here to celebrate the highs and lows of being or trying to be a vegetarian, links and recipes are also certainly welcome.

I am not here to condemn anyone who is meat eater, that's your choice not mine. I don't like to force my views on other people.
