Hi, I'm enjoying meeting more vegans, feel free to say hello.
I was vegetarian for 22 years until Jan '11 when I became vegan. Don't know what took me so long! Still working my way through my backlog of toiletries and slowly replacing with cruelty free stuff.
Since becoming vegan I've become a really decent cook although I still think you can't beat a brilliant salad with everything on - try a drizzle of balsamic reduction and a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds on top - brilliant. Oh, and I love toast - sometimes the simple things are the best.
Pogo Cafe, Hackney - best coffee, cakes, milkshakes, burgers and roast dinner in London!
The most annoying is when people ask, "So, what DO you eat?" and "Why?!" and then don't listen when I reply, Godsake. My parents are supportive, though, now they're over the shock.
Try some vegan restaurants, have a forum to discuss veganism, make some vegan friends. Be around people on a similar wavelength.
What a thoroughly terrific bunch of people - friendly, fascinating and diverse. :o)
Hope you enjoyed yesterday, it was too noisy for me!, but it was fun checking out the venue before hand with you.
Gyan has asked me to come tomorrow to help with lights etc. Hope thats ok
