I'm a Greek Cypriot living in Cyprus, 22y.o., 4th year law student. I am taking action in trying to become a vegan (have completely cut out meat from my diet). I started my journey about a month ago but here in Cyprus we have very little vegan products. I even have to import Protein(hemp,pea,brown rice), xanthan gum and nutritional yeast from the UK. The tofu is actually expensive and we do not have tempeh or gluten (hence no ready seitan[have to make it from whole wheat flour which takes a really long time and produces only a small amount], mock meats[maybe there are 1-2 products but super expenssive] etc.). I am trying to stick to peanutbutter, oats, grains, legumes, salad, fruits, nuts, seeds and the other basics. I like lifting weights and hope one day I will be able to prove to others that you can get big without meat/dairy/eggs. Vegans in Cyprus are probably less than 1% although no study has been done on this. Cyprus is the land of Halloumi(probably everyone knows this cheese) and since Cyprus is a Greek island souvlaki is very popular. If anyone else is from Cyprus I would appreciate some tips. If someone else is from Europe I would appreciate sharing websites that deliver in Europe vegan stuff (i.e. vegan yogurt culture, tempeh starter etc.). I hope to be an active member.

Hi welcome to the community here. Maybe try using the search in the upper right hand corner and searching European countries near or similar to Cyprus, find some people and the post to their threads with your questions.
