veg from Salt Lake City, UT

Hi All,

This is Roshni and I live in Salt Lake City, UT. I am a vegetarian. I have a small family of husband and son. I stay at home to take care of my son. I used to work before I had my son.

I love to cook, watch movies (of course on TV now that I have son) and chat.

I would love to have vegetarian/vegan friends. I am not originally from US and almost all of our friends and family are non-veg. It is sometimes a struggle for me to explain my eating habits. I appaluse all the vegans, and there eating habit supports me to be at least vegetarian. I want to raise my son as vegetarian too. But I am worried that he might get left out as he grows up because of his eating habits. So I want to make vegetarian/vegan friends as much as possible. I only have very few vegetarian friends but they are either out of state or out of country. But now, I found this website and I am so so thankful.

Okay, now I am going to check out the recipe section.


Welcome to the site RoshniD! I am new here as well, but have been cruising the recipe section for a bit. I think you will like it here. Good luck meandering through the recipes, there are plenty of them! ;)b


Welcome! There are any parents here that share their stories of raising veggie kiddos!


Hi, Roshni!

I'm new here as well. I grew up as the only vegetarian in my family. For some reason I rejected meat at a very young age. I can promise you that I was never left out in anyway while I was growing up! It really helped me develop my individual beliefs and thoughts. It can be very difficult explaining your personal eating choices to people that do not understand or may not want to accept your way of living. I can say that it will get easier as time goes on.

Take care.


Hi from SLC as well!


Nice to meet you.  Welcome!


Hi Roshni!

Welcome to VegWeb! It sounds like this will be a great hangout spot for you, we've got veg recipes galore and the greatest community on Earth!

I was in Salt Lake City a few years ago and I ate at this coffee shop/art gallery space that was all veg and all delicious, I was so excited to see quite a few veg options in the area! Arg, I wish I could remember the name of that place!

Have fun, and let me know if you have any questions!
