My name is Suzy and I'm an alcoholic.
Oh sorry... wrong forum. ;)
Isn't it great to see so many new veggies? It gives me hope and I know I'm not alone, even when it feels like I am.
I'm a new vegan, kinda old vegetarian.
I'm a California native hoping to move somewhere's close to the beach in the next year.
My family founded a non-profit dog rescue www.safeanimalrescue.com for dogs with special needs. Those dogs are just one of the reasons why I went veg.
My daughter volunteers are a farm animal sanctuary as well. When I saw the pigs 'sit' and 'rollover' on command, I couldn't keep the blindfold on any longer.
I have since read every book I can get my hands on about vegetarians, vegans, vegetarian politics, envirnomental studies, health studies, etc.
No way I could ever turn back. But I gotta say, I'm having a helluva time kicking cheese.
mmmmm...cheeeese... I'm living on Daiya shreds these days.
I'm hoping to meet some great vegetarians with a great outlook on life to share your wisdom and friendship.
I was the biggest cheese addict ever! You can do it.
Nice to meet you Suzy....I wish we had Daiya cheese here..............Welcome!
Your family founded a dog rescue? That's like, the coolest thing I've heard in a LONG time. I also live for daiya. I have been known to put it on general tso's chicken!
Have fun on VegWeb and let me know if you have any questions or need anything! Except more daiya, I am hoarding mine!
Ohh I so know what you mean about the cheese!! I love cheese and so does my daughter But i recently just converted to being a vegan my daughter walks around the house eating those damn cheese cubes haha she is only 3 1/2 I don't know if she would be happy but we will have to try our other options!! Good Luck!
I used to love cheese, but was able to break the habit.
Daiya is good, you should check out The Uncheese Cookbook, its totally dedicated to cheese-like recipes, yummy!
Thats so cute about the pigs sitting and rolling over on command. I used to love seeing the wild-pigs in Kauai, they are not that tame, but super cute, (hairy and warthoggy!!!)
Good luck on your vegan journey!
