Hello & Welcome! :D

Much & maybe most of the best vegan food I've ever eaten was home prepared.

Hi guys,
Thanks for all your replies.

The reason why I decided to become a vegan is pretty easy. My mom has been a vegetarian for most of my life. I used to eat meat but being a vegetarian wasn’t weird to me. A friend of my husband is a vegan and really impressed me. He is a cool person and I admire him for being a vegan. I decided to try it out and he gave me some help (went shopping with me etc), this was around 2 years ago. Honestly I wasn’t ready yet and did not stick to it. 7 months ago I read “diet for a new America” and became a vegan after eating pretty much everything the next day. It was and sometimes still isn’t that easy, but I know now why I want to be a vegan. This might sound kind of stupid but before informing myself I didn’t know how bad the meat industry is (I’m glad I’m smarter now ). My husband is also a vegan and we enjoy exploring new recipes.
Okay enough about my reasons.
I ‘m almost 25 from Germany (husband is American). Currently I’m studying online and it really sucks. In the summer we will move and I will attend a university on campus. When I don’t study I work as a teacher which is okay to make some money.
I’m a member at a gym and enjoy pretty much anything from classes to weights. I’m planning in getting into marshal arts. I also like to read, meet friends and party (well I’m a German so I guess it’s my job to party ;-).
Okay don’t know what else to say,
Michele

Thanks for the more detailed introduction Michele! :) Any particular martial arts that interest you? Also, what is your motivation/interest in getting into martial arts?

I think kick boxing would be pretty interesting to really feel like you worked out. I did some tai chi in the past and enjoyed it to just relaxe and feel the body.

How do you guys get vitamin D? I know that vegans can get it when being outside in the sun. Do you guys still use suncreen? What about cancer. How much sun does a vegan need to have enough vitamin D? Does anybody take
vitamins?
Thanks,
Michele
