Hello -- My name is Rebecca Burke. I am 43 and ready to give the Vegan life a try. I just finished reading the book after seeing Alicia on Oprah and I am inspired like I have never been inspired before. I am very excited to get started. I am going to get a meal plan all in order and get myself to the store to get started. I just went shopping a couple days before the show so I need to use up the ingredients I bought then and then I can get started. I already eat very little meat and dairy so it should not be so hard. I really do not like red meat all that much, but chicken might be hard to give up. But I am willing to do it for my health. My two boys are giving me a little bit of grief over this, but I think they will survive. My husband will be fine about it. If he wants something other then what I cook, he will get it for himself.
Good luck Rebecca! My husband thinks I'm crazy but I hope he will see some significant improvements and will get curious for himself. I also just bought the book after seeing Alicia on Oprah and am almost finished. It's fascinating! And I just found out that we have a farmer's market right in my small city so I can't wait to go and see what I can find in there. I wish you the best on your new journey!!!

Thanks so much. Hey you are in Concord, I am in Keene. How cool. We also have a farmer's market right here as well. I also signed up for a share in a CSA a couple of weeks ago so I should have a wide variety of veggies this summer. I am so excited to get started. Keep me posted on your progress. I am not sure how to do the friend thing, but I am hoping to be friends with lots of people on here to stay focused.
