I'm in Denton at UNT. Parents live in Allen. Got kin in Ft. Worth. So michael we could meet up at Spiral diner sometime maybe or there is a tamale place i believe close by Hot Damn Tamales, they actually make a vegan one. Hotdamntamales.com i think is their site. Also I know a person that goes to spiral frequently so if i get a group organized we can have a vegan eating party or something like that.

CollegeB,

You know, I remember enjoying the food at Spiral Diner when it was in the heart of downtown Ft. Worth. They've moved to a new location and I need to check them out sometime. They make a great vegan burger there. They're on the web at spiraldiner.com

Ronnie,

Thanks for the response too, as well as the link to Los Dos Laredos. I've never made it farther south than Houston in the 9 years I've been in Texas, but plan to one day.

Gorilla,

Another vegan rower out there--great! Do you use an indoor rower currently? I think that for simultaneously toning muscles and improving both flexibility and cardio fitness, rowing is just about the best. Welcome to the forum by the way.

I'm glad to see that you are savvy on hemp products. The best source is galaxyglobaleatery.com, a restaurant in NYC. I purchase 5 lbs. for $25.00 before shipping and this is the best price I've come across. I asked them how is it that you sell at half the price of other outlets? They informed me that the restaurant (decidely hemp based menu) is their main business--selling the shelled seed just above their cost is their way of getting the word out.

Cheers,

Michael

Hey Michael,
Yes I like to use the indoor rower as part of my cardio regime.

Thanks so much for the link. I've been paying way too much for my hemp seeds, methinks. Like 4 times more than that!

What an amazing restaurant!

Cheers,
James :D

Hey Michael, welcome abroad!

I'm also new but I can tell straight away that people here are fantastic!
Just a question, if I may, is your kid already a vegan/vegetarian? Or is it something that you're introducing gradually? Wow, I wish I had had parents like you!

Good luck with your business idea, it sounds promising!

Hello Christian,

Thanks for the nice welcome. You are correct, people here are exceptional in every way--warm and friendly to be sure.

My son is not fully vegetarian/vegan, but is at least eating far less meat (and no dairy save for some occasional cheese) than the average child. He has a strong awareness already of animal agribusiness through my teachings and has a compassionate soul. What I'm also proud of is the fact that he is in the 95th percentile for height/weight for his age group-- his gym teacher informed us that he is showing exceptional athletic prowess. I can tell you that at 4, I was already pitching balls to him overhand and he was hitting line drives over my head! Yes, a nearly vegan diet has served him well.
