Welcome Zumbanerd....I love good vegetarian cooking (and have not eaten meat in over 20 years). .... Have fun with it -:)

It's not too late. I will find out who I am and try to be true to myself.

I've been strict vegetarian for about 2 weeks now. I became this way after getting very ill from trying the Atkins diet that my doctor recommended for me to try. It did get me to lose 8 lbs in 10 days, but I got so sick that I now have a taste aversion to all meat. It just sickens me.

Since I've been on it, I've been trying new recipes and got two new cookbooks. I've got my energy back and I can see even a difference already in my resting bpm (have a fitbit). I'm regularly hungry, but not overly and I'm satisfied with my meals very quickly. I'm slowly losing weight without having to track anything (which is good because I'm horrible at tracking).

I call myself a strict vegetarian because that's really the best that I can be at this point in my life. I found out so much about how eating this way allows me to stave off dementia, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes (which all run in my family). I find it also has helped me with my fibromyalgia which is amazing. I'm much more upbeat again, too!

I look forward to chatting with everyone on this SparkTeam :) I only hope people can be positive to each other :)
