I'm new! My name is Lucinda and I live in Twin Falls, Idaho. I've been vegan for all of two weeks. I went vegan over the summer then gave it up for a couple of months. I read Alicia's book and I re-committed to vegan living. I felt so icky as a carnivore. My overall health and attitude improved 100 percent when I switched back. I live in a small, very carnivorous area where I get attitude everytime I say I'm vegan so I look forward to talking amongst fellow vegans.
