like it but miss the huge variety of things that can be had in NY and the prices here are insane. A manicure in NY costs 6 bucks here it can cost £ 19 with the current exchange rate that is about 40 bucks !!!!
May not be here much longer, my wedding is for the 23rd of May and he wants out of it all. I have not gone yet, I am staying until my Visa expires which is mid June, as I want to take full advantage of those long country walks that I will not be able to have in NY.
Despite my seemingly upbeat attitude ( a few people commented on that today ) I am devastated and feel very sad, which was part of my reason for joining SP. I could use a few nice people in my life right now, I am pretty lonely and isolated.
Good nite.

Hi :
Quorn is huge here in the UK but it is also sold in NY, used it a few times there too. It is made out of mushroom ( fungi ??) and has very high protein so very helpful for vegetarians. It is low fat, pretty tasty and versital, but the downside is that it has egg whites which of course is no good if you are a vegan or want to be a vegan. some are plain fillets, others have a lot of junk in them to doctor up the taste ( eg :Swedish meatballs, crispy fillets....).
Hope this helps you out.

Good Morning all :
I am new, just joined yesterday. You can read my sparkpage for all the details, but I joined this team as I am particularly interested in eating as many whole/organic vegetarian foods as possible. My diet would be considered rather limited by many people's standards, but I am really getting into it.
I have eliminated dairy, and the only animal products in my diet currently are a small amount of free range egg whites in the Quorn I eat for protein. Vegan food is hard to come by in the little villages where I am here in Essex, England, there is no Whole foods here and the health food stores here are nothing like the ones in NY, where I am from. I have eliminated wheat very recently to cope with non-stop digestive complaints ( bloating, gas, swollen tummmy...) and so far am finding it quite helpful, but ......naturally this limits my diet even further as that means seitan is now out, though that said, it is unattainable here in England anyhow. I am mainly eating organic fruit, vegetable, extra virgin olive oil, German rye bread, tofu and Quorn for protein. If I go back to NY which seems likely, then my variety of vegan options will expand 100 fold and can have a larger variety of things to eat.
Glad to be here ! :)
