Hi Everyone!

I'm Kitty, I'm 26 and I'm from Cheshire, UK.

I'd always wanted to be Vegetarian when I was little but never had control over what I was eating, When I eventually moved out and got a house of our own with Karl, My husband, I decided that I'd eventually go Veggie but didnt get around to it until now.

I've been Veggie since 8th December last year, so not long, nearly 2 months.

I'm finding it ok to begin with and I know how to check ingredients and packaging to see what is Veggie friendly and what isnt. I'll miss jelly beans I must admit! But for me, Being a Vegetarian is worth so much more than being able to eat jelly beans!

I had my first Vegetarian Christmas last year and was fine, didnt have any meat and made my own Vegetarian gravy too! I really didsnt miss having turkey or beef so was really proud of myself :)

I decided to join to get to know all of you lovely people and to share recipes and tips on food etc so really looking forward to chatting with you all :)

I would eventually like to give up all dairy products. Is it true that for the Milk industry to obtain Milk that they kill Calves? Thats what I heard anyway and thats why i would eventually like to give up all dairy products too, i just dont know what I'd replace cheese and yoghurts with etc? I know about Alpro Soya Yoghurts and Soya Milk etc, Is there a cheese alternative though?

Sorry for the essay! Just wanted to say Hello and i always tend to just ramble lol

Hi there Kitty. :)

Oh wow I'm from Cheshire too and I'm also a new vegetarian (although I started my new lifestyle in August). ^^ And yes I have heard of cheese alternatives but I have no idea where you'd be able to find them. I'm going to take a guess at health food shops as I've seen them sell tofu, substitute eggs, soya, etc.

Congrats on turning vegetarian, that is wonderful. You are making one of the best decisions you'll ever make- at least that's what most people say :) For me, it certainly was. There were a lot of foods I missed too, but then I came to realize that veggie replacements are SOOOO awesome, that I could find a vegan version of EVERYTHING I used to love! xo! Now you'll hear food  snobs try and condemn you for this, but you do whatever makes your journey easier, it's about the animals, not the ego. I wish you loads of luck, can't wait to see more of you around here xo
