Vegetarian or a vegan? Why?

Vegetarian. I'm not sure I could ever kick my love of cheese haha :) I was born into a vegetarian family and although I wasn't very thankful at the time, I am very much so now. I'd bring these 'weird' lunches of tabouli, or tofu sandwiches, and other oddities while my buddies had cookies, ham sandwiches, lunchables and myriad other items that I would pine for. Eventually it got to me and in high school I began eating meat, and did so for almost 15yrs. There was always this nagging voice in my mind, saying "stop eating meat dummie!" So finally I listened! And I feel greeeat!

If yes, how long have you been a vegetarian/vegan?

Well if you count my early years, it's been about 14 yrs, but I just recently made the switch in April of 2011, so not quite a year now.

What would you like to do with/get from this group?

All my close friends are avid meat eaters, which makes it a bit tricky when we go out for dinner or they have people over for a cookout. I'm hoping to meet like-minded people and exchange food ideas, restaurant knowledge, recipes and maybe even a veggie date!
