Yeah, there are quite a few vegan restaurants over here & also veggie restaurants with many vegan choices! Sadly they tend to be confined to the big cities, like London (i'm out in the sticks) - I checked out a great vegan chinese "all you can eat for a fiver" buffet restaurant just before xmas....

Dolly, I read your post and it seems that if you would have to choose a dating partner now, it would not be an omni.. Am I right? That is a tough one dodic! I would definately be guided by my heart, i know that much for sure! I suppose that it would depend how i intended on meeting a new guy - you ...

Cool story, thanks Andy!

Do you still practice martial arts?

I practice Jiu Jitsu - used to kickbox but had to "retire" because of a severe elbow injury (dislocation).

Hey everyone! I've kinda done it the wrong way round (posting in the other forums before introducing myself) <<== I wasn't being rude intentionally! :D Anywho.. I was veggie for nearly five years then made the switch to veganism just over a year ago. I found the transition really easy & didn't m...

I'm vegan & my fiance is omni. When we met i was omni, but turned veggie @ 18, overnight (after being shown a factory farming video in my animal welfare lecture). I was veggie for just under 5 years, when i started researching the dairy & egg industry - i was horrified with what i found! It ...

I know i feel extremely sef concious when an omni asks me the question "so, why are you vegan?" (when it's someone who's blatantly not interested, or they are waiting to pick apart my reasons) ..
I say my piece & wait for the ==> :roll:

Ditto! It is still flesh - which is not vegetarian!

Why does your friend feel the need to eat crab meat? There is so much variety out there without the need to harm/cause distress to animals!

Take care!

You discover so many new foods too - a few years back i wouldn't have known what Quinoa was, the joys of tabasco sauce, or the benefits of yeast extract!

I've also found that my taste buds are far more sensitive now that i'm vegan (so no need for any extra salt put on my food!)
