Re: In need of advice/support

Thank you a lot guys, this really helps me a lot. It's so strange, because I do tell myself it's not about being 100% vegan. I know no one is able to do it. The simple fact that I own a car and a computer alone makes it impossible. I guess I just have a tendency to get carried away and be very hard ...

In need of advice/support

Hello my wonderful veggies. I started my vegan transition at the end of October. I was already vegetarian, and the dairy and eggs were sworn off overnight. No issue. I have since been getting stricter and more mindful, such as no more honey, alcohol must be vegan, refined sugars are no-nos, looking ...

Re: Have You Been Criticized For Being Vegan?

I just recently began being vegan, so I have yet to deal with this. I don't talk about it much, though. If someone offers me something, I just say "no, thank you" rather then "no, I'm vegan." I'm certainly not ashamed, but I find it best to wait until someone asks me about it, su...

Re: If a child refuses to eat fruit or veg

It is a horrible idea to never have them available to try again! That sends the message that they are actually yucky and not very fun to eat. I really credit my mother for my love of veggies. I didn't like them as a kid very much, but she always had them. At every meal. Always. She never forced me t...

Re: Defining Terms

I see more non-veggies (vegan or vegetarian) use the term 'carnivore' to define themselves more than anyone in the community. Even the other day on Facebook one of my friend's liked a group called "I love being a carnivore" which is ridiculous. None of them are carnivores! At least I hope ...

Re: 8 Reasons You Should Stop Drinking Milk Now

Milk has never been very appealing to me, but once I started learning/thinking more about it, milk is totally unnecessary. Plus, most of the milk alternatives taste much better. And it doesn't make me feel like I'm drinking fat. :( I know so many people who think they can't possibly give up cheese, ...

Re: Thinking About Going Vegan But Need Help

This is something I have been struggling with as well! I have only recently started the transition to veganism, but I somehow feel like I'm spending MORE on groceries, which can't be right! I figured I have to be doing something wrong. Maybe it's just because I've needed to restock everything. I lov...

Re: Oohhhhh my God I slipped up so badly....and now I'm payi

Don't give up!! I have never relapsed, but I have only been vegetarian for 6 months, and vegan for only a week. But honestly, don't beat yourself up. Things happen. Just use this as a learning experience. You may feel addicted to the bad stuff, but are you addicted to the breakouts, guilt, etc? I do...

Re: How did you find this forum?

I Googled "Vegan community" today at work, and began reading like crazy all through lunch. As soon as I got home, I signed up. And here we are. :)

Brand new! :)

Hello, everyone. I am brand new to this forum, as well as the world of veganism. I do not have vegan friends, although my fiance is an incredibly supporting omni. I started being vegetarian only 6 months ago, however, the more I thought about being a lacto-ovo-vegetarian, the less and less it made s...
