Vegetarian and Vegan members
 
I've been vegan for almost a year and I was wondering if there are any other vegetarian or vegan members.

I'm a vegetarian! :D

Vegetarian for about 7 years.

*raises hand* I'm a vegetarian, I have been on for 3 years (not very long) but the kids at school sometimes give me crap about it...and sometimes I almost buckle and give in to the meat they shove at my face, but I haven't yet and am not planning to. I have thought about going vegan but then I brought some chicken...working on getting a cow and some sheep so I know where the eggs and everything come from so I decided not to go vegan, and I get organic whenever I can. Nice to see there are some other vegies out here :)

I'm not, but have always been interested (and I'm NOT having a go at vegetarians, this is just a question :smile:) as to how you get iron and other things that come from meat? I've always wondered that.

It's cool. I personally eat a lot of Legumes, Grains, Nuts and Seeds and vegetables (duh) I eat a lot of tofu (legumes) and mushrooms, even though I don't like them that much. If I think i'm lacking iron or anything else important i'll take a iron pill :)

I'm a vegetarian! My parents have always been, and they raised me and my brother as vegetarians. When we were old enough, they explained why people eat meat, and why we do not. I never remember it being their decision, I always made my own choice to refuse meat based on what I had been told about animals. My partner eats meat and I hate it, I have always made it clear that when we live together, there will be NO meat in my house!!

A question I would like to ask is - why are you vegetarian or vegan?

Personal interest.

If he/she has always eaten meat, you can't expect them not to just because you don't. It will be their house too, and they'll have as much say about what food is brought in as you.

I predict this relationship is doomed unless you can learn to bend a little and realize that if you're sharing your life with someone you have to accept who they are, not try to change them to your ideal.

I have no quarrel with vegetarians/vegans/ovo-lactos or the like. As long as you respect my choices, I'll respect yours.
