Newbie Here. :)

#1 Postby Metalbabe » Thu Mar 16, 2006 12:26 am

Hi guys! I'm a newer vegan (been a vegan for a little less than a year now and a vegetarian about 2 years before that). Anyway, I just started lifting about two months ago and I love it! I came on here earlier tonight to find out what vegan protein shakes are the best and bought 2 lbs of hemp protein and 2 lbs of pea protein. Anyway, I hope to learn some more things on here. This is a very interesting forum. :D

Welcome!

I love shakes, too! Also try flax and don`t forget to put some berries or fruits into it to inhance the flavor :wink:

Welcome Metalbabe!

I think you'll notice that a lot of people on here, besides being vegans and athletes, are also full-fledged, headbanging, metalheads! :supz:

Are you going to join us for our Vegan Vacation in L.A. this summer?

Check out the sticky in the General Discussion for more info. It would be cool to see you there.

We have 5-10 forum members from L.A. although a few of them haven't posted on here in months. Maybe they'll come back soon.

If you know other vegans in L.A. or Orange County or nearby, please let them know about our event.....even better, have them join us here.

-Rob
