Going vegan!
This is a group to make it easier for vegetarians to convert to veganism. To help and answer questions on what eat, how to shop and sharing information with others about eating more compassionately. Veganism may seem hard or extreme but it is becomes easy and very satisfying with the help of others.

I apologize for not being as active as I should have, so it would be nice to see a fresh new moderator if anyone is willing.
