HELP!! NEW TO VEGANISM
I have been a vegetarian on and off for the last few years but finally decided to become a vegan after studying for my diploma in animal care and seeing the abuse animals suffer for human greed.
Did anyone else find the transition from vegetarian to vegan difficult?

Vegetarian in the military
I am planning on joining the Military after college. I have heard it is hard to be a vegetarian in the military depending on where you are stationed.
I was wondering if anyone had some advise or wisdom they can pass on. Yes I understand I can talk to a it recruiter about I plan to. I just like to have a little background knowledge. Thank you ?

Portland Vegan seeking living space
I hope that this little note of mine finds you happy and healthy.
I'm a long time Portland resident (since 2005) with a steady job (I've been there over 7 years) who is seeking a new living space and/or the right person to find a space with.
House-sitting or similar arrangements are also of interest to me.
Right now I live in NE Portland with housemates that I get along well with. They can be personal / rental references for me. I've let them and our landlord know that I'm looking for a new place. I want to move as I'm transferring to a different position within my company at a work site downtown.
A regular bedroom isn't at all essential for me. I don't need much space and will consider pretty much anywhere that is safe, private, clean and keeps the weather outside.
Tiny houses, Vans, large closets, RVs, sheds, garages and similar arrangements could all work well!
I'm fairly flexible but prefer to be fairly close to inner SE Portland. I want to be close to 1 or more TriMet routes and the 15 or 20 bus lines work best.
I prefer informal arrangements though signing a lease if needed is not a problem. I'm looking to pay $500 or less each month, with all utilities, etc included in that price. I pay my rent on time.
I've been Vegan for over 20 years and strongly prefer to live with other Vegans or at least to be in a meat free house. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs of any sort and prefer to live with folks who share these choices, at least while at home. I'm also Dad to three wonderful kids who I want to feel comfortable and safe when they visit. To be clear, my kids live with their mother - I am only looking for a space for myself.
I'm a great housemate for someone who mostly wants their own space as I'm not usually home except to sleep, shower and such. When I am around, I enjoy socializing with my housemate/s if they're so inclined. I like to have occasional guests but won't be throwing any rowdy parties.
If I sound like someone you might enjoy living with, let's grab a beverage and chat!

Anybody from Dubai? Fancy a challenge?
In case anybody else is hanging out in Dubai in June, how about a Happy Cow challenge?
I've gone through the restaurant listings for Dubai on Happy Cow and found that many places have rather vague info attached and now reviews. To make things better for veggies in Dubai and visitors to the city, I'm planning to visit as many of the listed outlets this summer to try their nomz, update the Happy Cow listings, and add some reviews.
Fancy joining? Send me a PM here or email [email protected]

Hi! Am I allowed here?
Hello everyone! I am a huge animal lover and mother to 2 furry babies - Buster (English Mastiff) and Norah (Mixed Breed Cat). I am just making the transition to shopping 100% cruelty-free, I avoid all land-animal byproducts, however, I am a pescetarian and my husband still eats meat. Am I welcome here? I've been kicked off any other sites I've tried and I noticed your TOS weren't 100% on it so I thought I'd give it a try!
If so, hi! And if not.. have a wonderful day!

Vegans in Finland?
Hi! I am Teresa from Spain and I came to Finland a week ago. I would like to meet some vegans here and I tried in animal shelters but they don't need more volunteers and the rights animal associations don't have upcoming events.

New from Oregon
Just wanted to introduce myself - I have been mostly Vegan for about 5 years now. I'm 51 years old and trying to stay in the best health so I can enjoy my grandchildren. Right now my 20 mo old grandson keeps me pretty busy!
I see so many people my age who are taking some kind of medication or another, or who have some kind of chronic illness. Most of them ignore what I do and continue eating themselves sicker - which is sad. But i have guided a couple of friends at work into the Vegan World - and they are happy and losing weight.
Anyway - thanks for having me and I look forward to chatting with you all soon.

Introducing myself from Oshkosh, WI
Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kayla and I live in Oshkosh, WI. I was curious if there were any others from the area on here. I am a Vegan and have been since January of 2013. There are definitely not a lot of Vegans or very many Vegan friendly places around here. Hopefully as time progresses there will be more demand for Vegan options everywhere as more and more people are becoming aware everyday.

Need advice on nutrition for a runner
I'm a brand new vegetarian (4th day today). I've done a lot of research on food balance and nutrition when switching and finally decided to make the switch this week.
I am very focused on living healthy and have recently started running. Tomorrow I will do my first outdoors 5km run. Very excited!
My question is this: how do I eat around my training to make sure I have the right amount of protein and carbs for the session. 5km is only 30minutes to me, but in a normal training schedule I do 60minutes of cardio and muscle training and suspect I need to eat "smarter".
If anyone can suggest a book or website or have personal knowledge to share, I would much appreciate it :-)

Veg*ns in Clarksville, TN?
Hi. I just arrived in Clarksville, TN (after a long time away). I've noticed some restaurants and grocery stores offer vegan and vegetarian items, indicating that there are, well, vegans and vegetarians in the area.
When I went to Which Wich, and an employee there said they get many vegans coming to their location. And, Silke is very vegan friendly (their employees are very responsive to vegans!).
So...I figure there are other vegans and vegetarians in the area...but they are...not visible to me.
Please let me know if you are in the area! Thanks!
