My dd can be a little aggressive about anything that is not "grown from the ground", I try to explain to her that it is just as irritating as ex-smokers and is not the way to win friends and influence people. I think she would find more converts if they didn't think she was so high strung.
There is a great article in last months Vegetarian Times about vegetarian etiquette.

Someone in the vegetarian forum asked if there were any pescatarians in the group since she thought she might have to add fish for nutrition reasons, then proceeded to say how much the thought of eating a fish disgusted her...I did not speak up.
I've put in a request to be made team leader. May take a couple of days, but it shouldn't be a problem. Once I get that, I can send out a team wide message to see if there is really any interest. Also mention it on a couple of the close-but-not-quite food groups. We'll see what happens from there.
I'd like to see it go on, so we could have a place to talk about fish as well as veggie recipes.

To answer my own questions, I'd love to see a more active team with recipe exchanges and eating tips.
I'm NOT interested in a DIET team -- my own 50 some years journey has proven to me diets do not work, nor do programs that say that then go on and proscribe a diet. So I'm not into the idea of food journaling or challenges/topics that beat people up for having too much ice cream one night.
I would like to swap recipes and product discoveries in an atmosphere that is open to the idea of eating fish/seafood versus no-meat or any-meat-just-some-times.
Our team leader is gone. This team is dead in the water participation-wise, but I'd love to see it take off.
I'm leader of another team, but have never done one alone or checked out how to get "appointed" a leader of a dead team, but I'm willing to do that or to simply start a new one, but I'd like some feedback to find out if:
1) How many of you are interested in an active team 2) What you'd like to see the team do for you 3) Is it better to simply start a new one?
