I love the first and last pictures the most.  I think pictures of buttons will get any craftster excited. Yay buttons!
15  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: what do you wish people told you before you became a vegetarian/vegan on: March 22, 2009 01:34:19 PM
I wish someone would have told me about all those random foods you would never expect to find disgusting meat products in, like frosting, marshmallows, refried beans, pretty much every soup ever, and candy.  There is no reason there has to be connective tissue in gummy bears.  Its weird and I wish I would have found out sooner.

I also wish I would have known that everyone will become instantly worried about my protein intake.  People that would have never cared about what I ate, until I told them I don't eat animal products, now suddenly care.   If I was eating nothing but cake and bacon before, they wouldn't have said anything, but when they find out I'm eating healthy their worried.

Even though it wouldn't have made me change my decision, I would have liked to know that most people will not respect my decision, and people will associate me with PETA.  I'm not part of peta, and I don't support some of the things they do, but when someone finds out about something crazy they did, its suddenly my fault and they expect me to defend them.

It would have been easier to start if I would have known how easy it is, and how much the people that really matter to me, like my best friend, boyfriend, and parents support my decision.  My boyfriend has even become a vegetarian and my mom is slowly getting there. 

Re-fried beans almost always contain lard, especially from fast food and restaurants. 

People who are not vegan/vegetarian are almost always curious, and can be very respectful.  But some of them are pushy and say things like "god put animals here for me to eat" and "I'll eat twice as much meat now that you're not"   I assume this ignorance stems from insecurity, or lack of education on the matter. 

I wish I would have known that since becoming vegan, I've learned to like so many more foods I hated before.  I now eat bananas, cantelope, spinach, broccoli, and quite a few other fruits and veggies that I never liked before.  Its so easy to cook for my self now, and even make things that omnivores will eat as well. 

I also wish I would have known that I actually feel healthy, never get sick, am never tired during the day for no reason, I have more energy, and I'm just plain happier.  I would have changed my eating habits earlier if I knew it would impact my health this much. 


**About the raising vegan/vegetarian kids, I plan on raising mine that way, and I think it would be irresponsible to feed them food that I know would be unhealthy.  Sure, they can have some candy, which is unhealthy, but I'm not feeding my kids rotting flesh laced with hormones, that comes from tortured animals.
