Hello from kentucky
Hey, I've been getting recipes off here for quite awhile and decided to join because non of my friends are veg*n so sometimes it's nice to talk to other people that don't eat meat :P
I'm vegetarian but leaning toward veganism. I generally only eat eggs/dariy if it's a biproduct in something I buy, but I definitely have a weakness for cheese (which I'm trying to work on) and the occasional yogurt. So I'm getting there just not sure if/when I'll take the plunge
I've been vegetarian for about 8 months. I had been considering it for awhile because I'm a nutrition major and know that animal products definitely aren't necessary and a veg diet can be really beneficial. Then I watched the "Meet your Meat" video then "Earthlings" and cried my eyes out and decided to go on and give up meat, so basically it happened overnight. I think getting a cat had something to do with it to b/c I don't see her different than any other animal and I certainly wouldn't eat her (yuck just typing that made me cringe haha).
So yea, that's me in a nutshell. And I live in Kentucky and it kinda sucks. Vegetarianism is getting a little more prevalent but it's still rare to find someone that is, and I've NEVER met a vegan in person. If it wasn't for the internet I'd wonder if they actually exist, I think it's more likely I'd run into a unicorn lol Which would be pretty sweet
lol you're funny ;D welcome! good luck on trying to take the vegan "plunge"
The only vegans I know are my internet firends....nice to meet you!!!
We have another user in kentucky.
also, i went vegan when i was a nutrition major, too! and consequently started really hating the major. niiice.
Where are you???????? I'm in Berea.
Vegans don't actually exist. We are a figment of your imagination
one thing that is nice about having a nutrition degree is no one questions me about if what i eat is healthy. (like where do you get your protein, etc.)
I live in Louisville, too! But I live over in Louisville, not Lexington. We only have 1 vegetarian restaurant, and no vegan ones around here. :'( But so many are veg-friendly (like Dakshin Indian Cuisine, they mark all vegan items)! Anyway, nice to know other vegans actually exist here in KY.
Lexington has a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. It's called Alfalfa. I've not been there, but I here it's great food, not so great service.
I've been to Lexington before and ate at Alfalfa and it was delicious! Do you ever travel up to Chicago? Not too far and amazing vegan eats, right? Or maybe it is far...my sense of geography is loose at best! Le sigh.
Anyway, welcome to VegWeb! I know you'll have fun!
I know what you mean that vegetarians and vegans are rare in the south, I live in Mississippi.
I have personally only seen another vegan in passing, I was too shocked to even talk to them.
Yes, someday! And eat at Chicago Diner when you're there, it'll knock your socks off! And by knock your socks off, I mean make you so full you'll want to explode. It's wonderful!
