Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default Becoming a vegan?

For every vegan there are at least 10 people who know they should be a
vegan. I'm one of these poor saps. I figure I just won't buy anything from
the supermarket that contains meat products. So I can be a vegan at home.
The only problem is when I'm out, burger king, taco bell, (not McDonald's),
and other fast food get the best of me. Then I go to dear old mom's house
every other day for that good old fashion meat dinner. I'm weak, any
subjections besides sticking my head in the toilet.

We've all been there. Even if you can't be 100% vegan you make a
positive contribution by consuming animal products.

When you are ready you can pack lunches, keep snacks where you work, and
learn to make tasty meals that will make you forget the fast food
restaurants.

There are all also books and web sites that give tips on how to deal
with relatives.

Volunteering for local vegetarian or AR groups can help too. You can
make friends and get peer support in a positive direction.

In the meantime take things at your pace, eat what you want to eat, and
don't worry about labels.

Realize that 25% of the people reducing meat consumption has a bigger
effect than one hard and true vegan.
