I want to say hello & introduce myself. I'm a vegetarian with a goal of
eliminating all animal products from my diet. I'm here to gain knowledge & hopefully make friends along the way.

Welcome VirgoKitten!

Thanks for joining our team. There are a few things for certain:

On this forum you will learn a lot about eliminating all animal products from your diet.

and...

You will make friends along the way.

You are in Toronto right? I think there are at least 3 or 4 of you from that city on this forum. Their names are compassionategirl and Animal and maybe others I'm forgetting. So maybe you'll be able to meet someone in person too.

All the best,

Welcome aboard!

-Robert

Welcome VirgoKitten,

It is definitely possible. If milk is your problem, there are a lot of substitutes for that, ice cream, etc. Also the ethical reasons weigh a lot, really sad stuff. Good luck!

Hi VirgoKitten,

It won't be as hard as you might be expecting. You'll quickly find out how easy it is to do without eggs and dairy.

Welcome!!! I did the same thing (veggie to vegan) and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. My cheese and ice cream withdrawals weren't nearly as bad as I thought they'd be (thanks in part to Tofutti).

Welcome! Always cool to meet people who are making the transition. I'm from Toronto as well. There is a lot of vegan activity in this city, including the bi-weekly vegan potlucks followed by animal rights movies or lectures organized by the Toronto Animal Rights Society (TARS). We should get the Toronto contingent from this site together some time to talk veggies and workouts at the potluck or over coffee. If you need localized advice on vegan friendly establishments in the city, or vegan products common to Toronto supermarkets, drop me a line. Do you or compassionategirl attend the potlucks? I haven't been in a while, but I'm planning to go to the next one.
