Hi, Rose,

I created this team just about a year ago because I found that some members of the Calling All Veg'ns team seemed less than accepting of members whose primary motivation was different from theirs. I also wanted a team where the focus was whole foods, non-dairy, versus straight ovo-lacto veg.

Even so, I am still a member there, and sometime find information that's helpful.

I'm glad you've found us. Please let us know if there's something in particular that you would like us to discuss or explore.

Hi Rose, Glad you're here. I'm with you... eating whole foods and eating a larger percentage of fruits and vegies, etc. is about good nutrition (not animal welfare) for me too.

The focus of that group must have changed. Since I have been a member, there is a big focus on finding ways of incorporating a vegetable diet into your life, healthy ways to replace plants with the meats in your life.

I agree that hearing discussions about cruetly free life would get annoying. Consider revisiting the group, or at least go look at some of the more recent posts. I have not seen a focus on the cruelty free dialogue.

I was a member of that group for a little while. It wasn't really good for me. It geared a lot of its conversation toward living a cruelty free life and for me going plant based has very little to do with the animals. For me its about treading lightly on our enviroment and doing whats best for my health.

Good Morning Everyone! I'm SilnyWilk which is Strong Wolf in Polish. My real name is Rose. I'm 22 years old and from NJ. I'm really struggling to make my life mean something and I feel that one of the most important changes I need to make is my health. I want to transition to a plant based diet.
If my life is going to mean as much as I want it to, my body has to become a temple.
