    Hello, Annie here from South Australia. Hoping to connect with others to learn more about living a plant-based lifestyle.

    I'm often asked why I no longer choose animal products, and the short answer is "because there is no need to". The long answer is that is better for my own health, better for the animals who are tortured and slaughtered, and better for the Earth.

    I am sure you will agree with me.

    I'm looking forward to future interactions with like-minded people.

    It's great to meet you all!

    I'm Alicia from Illinois, USA.

    This new year, I'm determined to make a vegan friend and go on many adventures together to speak up for animals. Or just chat, I'm up for anything :)

    Hello l am Dianne from Rowley Regis in the West Midlands UK I have been vegan 24yrs befor that I was veggie 14yrs. I went vegan when l realised that dairy also contributes to animals suffering. As well as being vegan l am also a Christian. To me being both makes perfect sense and show love for all creation. Christians are supposed to love people but l do not see how l can do that if l cause people to go hungry by my food choices.

    Hi everyone, I'm Nathan from Florida. I've been a vegetarian since I was nice. In that time, I've learned to cook all sorts of new dishes, and really gotten serious about being healthy. In fact, I recently lost 68lbs. I now run my own blog, , where I share all the exciting recipes and info I've come across. And I hope to be able to do the same thing here on Happy Cow.

    Hi everyone! My name is Maitland and I live outside of a little town called Grangeville, ID. I’ve been vegan for a full month and 1/2 now and to be hones, its been hard. Not a lot of people here support the idea of no animal or by-animal products. They barely even have a healthy foods section in the grocery store! Well anyway, I joined this site to basically meet others like me...

    Hello everyone! I am Jenia from Russia! I don’t eat animal food for almost a year and I am happy about that ! My friends and most relatives judge me for my idea to change my food culture. That’s why I am here to find people who support the idea of good and healthy food.

    Hi there... I'm completely new to the idea of adopting a vegetarian/vegan diet and I have no idea where to start. I would love to get some advice from anyone who is willing to help a girl with a bunch of food intolerances out!

    My name is Aditi, and I am originally from India but am currently studying in New York City :)

    Hey! I'm Gabi from Portland, OR. I went to university in London England, and I've been vegan for about 3 years. While all of my friends are supportive of my lifestyle choices, I don't have a single friend that is 100% vegan (yet!) I love the fact that veganism is slowly becoming more mainstream- hopefully it'll lead me to meeting some more like-minded people!

    Sorry for the late response. My name is Mara and although I'm not vegetarian (yet) I eat very little meat. I'm also looking for a way to reduce my diary consume. I'm observing food trends like low carb that demand for high meat consumption.
    I live in Austria and my favourite country is Spain. This page can help me funding vegetarian options in a country where you will still find quite a lot of meat on the menus.

    Hello! My name is Jess and I have been living a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle for the past 3 months now. I am now working more towards vegan as I found that I feel so much better not only ethically but physically. I am in my late 20s and I live with my husband and two other roommates. They are supportive but not vegan.

    I live in the mid-eastern part of the US, where we are slowly but surely getting vegan options but right now you do have to do research before going out to eat to find vegan friendly options.
