Hey everyone! I am sooo super excited to finally be a member of "The Kind Life" website. Plus, I'm a fan of Alicia Silverstone's movies. I have been a vegetarian for 2 1/2 years now & counting & I feel fantastic! My fiance started 6 months earlier & I just felt like we weren't in sync. I went cold turkey on the start of New Years 2010 & have just kept going. People ask how I do it & I tell them strong will, determination, & love for myself & the environment. People ask what do I eat & I say everything you do minus the meat. I love sharing and spreading information about living life as a vegetarian. I have started my own organic garden, compost, worm farm & made rain barrels. Becoming a vegan is my work in progress, but I know I will get there. I'm so proud of myself for getting this far & hope that I can spread the "vegi-itist" to everyone around me. Smooches!
Congrats to you!!! I have found since turning vegan 2 yrs ago (I was mostly vegetarian for 15 years) I no longer crave cheese (in fact don't like the smell of any kind of milk products). I have more energy, think clearer & feel so light inside. My cholestrol which had been steadily going up is finally back down to 150. And I love that I am trying new foods that I would've never thought of trying before, like seitan, tempeh & quinoa. My one bad outcome is that I can't stop buying vegan cookbooks....I have quite a collection now! :)
