I have been a vegetarian since i was 12 years old. Far too many people write off vegetarian food as being boring or restrictive. In reality it is the healthiest diet for all of us, and for the planet. I would like more meat eaters to give the veggie options a chance once in a while; in my experience they often feel they have been missing out

More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

Since i've been a child i have never felt comfortable with the idea of eating something that has been killed for my consumption. As i've grown up and learned more about healthy eating and nutrition i have found that not only it is unnecessary to eat meat as a protein source, but there are much healthier options without the unnecessary associated cruelty

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

Over the past few years i have travelled quite a bit, both in the east and the west of the world. I checked out Happy Cow a few times during and my trips and i thought it was an awesome idea. It is such an extensive listing of places to eat and i hope that it continues to grow and that i am able to contribute

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

I'm a big fan of dishes containing beans, pulses, lentils etc but spicy food is my favourite so i enjoy Indian / Thai / Chinese foods very much. I also enjoy tofu and other soy based meat alternatives; there are so many options with these types of foods

Here are some books, movies, magazines, and my favorites that I would recommend to other HappyCow members:
