Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I hate it when some people think that I ONLY eat vegetables because I'm a vegetarian. If you don't eat meat it doesn't mean that you only eat vegetables, there are many other things to eat.
Vegans/vegetarians are often stereotyped as being dumb for caring about the way animals are treated. And for lacking the "common sense" that animal products are a natural part of the human diet. Who's to decide what's "natural" or not? This diet is so healthy for you and gives you so much energy.
People need to stop being so brainwashed by conventions and the media and realize that being a vegan/vegetarian not only helps your health, but the lives of animals, the environment, and not to mention, your finances. You save so much money. There's sooo many benefits!
That vegetarians are skinny and sickly and develop deficiencies. Meh. I've been vegetarian for two years and I'm still alive... And healthy.
But who cares about living proof, right? Ha. :3
"Vegetarian!!?? But then you can never eat at restaurants". Even though this is not true, it made me think, that the number of places I can eat out - and get a proper meal and not just a sidedish - is two (2) in my hometown.
Yes, mostly vitamins. My iron is actually at a higher level than when I ate meat. lol
