It has been a full year since I decided to make the change to become a vegetarian!  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  The one regret I have is that I didn't do it years sooner.I had thought about it and talked about it for years and always thought because of where we live, Rural North Central Iowa, the heart of egg and hog factory farming, it would be too hard.  And, I never thought my husband would agree. Boy, was I wrong, after mentioning it to my husband briefly several…See More

About
Have been transitioning towards vegetarian for a few years and finally have been lacto-ovo vegetarian for about 6 months. Still trying to cut out cheese, ice cream and using fewer and only local farm raised eggs.
I live in a small town in the mid-west, so has been a challenge.

I am married with two grown children and 3 young granddaughters. My husband has not given up meat totally but is supportive and respectful of my decision to not cook or serve meat in our home.

I don't know of any vegetarians or vegans in my area. Am anxious to get advice from and talk to others who are living the veggie life style.
