Welcome to Veggie Talks


Welcome to my meat-free web environment.  This is a space for vegetarians, and others who are open-minded and willing to accept a vegetarian perspective, to share with one another their daily dilemmas living among our carnivorous counterparts.  This blog will explore and discuss a number of situations we vegetarians encounter and how we deal with them.  I want to address common misconceptions about vegetarianism and gain feedback from others on these untruths.  I also want to share my greatest frustrations in interacting with meat-eaters and trying to explain my vegetarianism to them, and I would love to hear your stories too.  I want this blog to be a discussion forum where we can all share our experiences, ask questions and learn from one another.  I am really excited about the ideas I have for this blog and I cannot wait to see what you guys think!!

  1. I'm totally an omnivore! But I have tons of veggie-loving friends, I support vegetarianism, and, of course, vegetables are super sexy.

  2. I am really looking forward to reading this, Erin! I've been considering the idea of giving up meat for a while now, but I honestly don't know how I'd live without chicken or fish. Hopefully you inspire me!

    1. It is a hard decision to make! Some people find it easier to slowly decrease the amount of meat they eat and cut things out one at a time. This way its less of a shock to your system and it's easier to adjust to your new diet.

  5. I can't wait to read more Erin! I try to do a 'Meatless Monday' every week and I really enjoy it. I try to be creative with my meat free meals so I don't get bored. There are some really great vegetarian recipes out there. Next on my list: Butternut Squash Dal.

  6. The veggies in your background look very appetizing. After watching films like "Food Inc." and the "Meatrix" (lol), I have also considered becoming a vegetarian. After watching the Food Inc, I was appalled by beef and felt queasy when I so much as looked at it. The intensity of my aversion to beef has passed though, unfortunately. My biggest issue, now, with becoming a vegetarian is getting enough protein. Maybe you have some strategies you can share.
