Add Me Veg - an 'Add Me' community aimed at vegetarian and vegan friends on livejournal!

I love my omnivore friends, but sometimes its nice to have a few fellow veg*ns on one's friends' list, swap recipes, discuss dinner ideas, and share ideals about animal welfare and animal protection
Not to mention, not have to explain yourself about your dietary choices (unless you wish to). ;)


Promises to be a drama free, non-snarky, fun space!

Looking forward to seeing you over there!!

Hi so Ive been a vegetablearian now for about a year, it all started when I was watching shipwrecked!? dunno if anybody's heard of it, its a UK thing I think mainly, but anyways, they made freinds with chops the pig and I was so devestated when they killed her I cried and swore never to eat meat again... so here I am a year or so later :)  It was the fact that she was so intelligent, she knew what they were going to do to her, URGH I had to switch the channel over it made me feel so sick to the stomach.

Anyways...I have joined this community in the hopes to find some different, healthier recipes I could make in the house for my mam and myself, she still eats meat, but when she does, she only cooks for herself leaving me hungry, so I'd love it if somebody got back to me with some nice, nutritious meals I can make please? =)

I'm trying to loose wieght at the moment, so it would be even better if the fat in them didn't make me fat but burned it all up instead!! lol  Ok so maybe that's never gonna happen, but a girl can dream right!? lol

thank you and please say hi, maybe we could have a chat :)

 Hi all!

 

I would like to share an article that I wrote on losing weight, with the emphasis on doing this healthfully so...

and I hope this may help some of you out there :)

 

Love, health & of course Happy Holidays to you all!

 

Many of us are looking to lose ten pounds fast, and many diet gurus claim to have the answer. The question is, how much do you want those ten pounds tostay gone? Wouldn't the ideal scenario be to be beach-ready at all times without feeling the need to follow starvation diets that are draining to mind and body both?

 

There is an answer, and it will seem like such a no-brainer, but so many of us out there have still not applied it in our own lives, that it deserves a mention...

Is there such a thing as vegetarian smoked salmon (like a soya protein or GM fungi or something?)

So many great diet recipes include smoked salmon I wonder how calorific a veggie version would be!¬ Thanks, cross posted

Okay so I came back from this weekend at my dad's house and...I ate...a lot of...meat.
I literally got so sick I threw up and felt like crap for the last two days.  Now my throat is scratchy and I need to get better!

First of all, I feel awful because I know all the crap they put into meat and how they filter it down on what to sell to who and who gets the best of the worst.  I told my dad I was pesca-veg for the past year and he cooked me up some fish WHICH WAS AWESEOME.  He has all my respect and stuff but I felt bad because...well he's my dad and he's always cooked me flank steaks and bacon and meat and meat. 

How can I really get a hold of myself and not do this sort of thing again?  I've been so healthy eating and *sorry* pooping right that my body really likes this life change.  After this weekend I was so bloated with hormones that I actaully got cramps.  My period was 2 WEEKS AGO.  More proof never to do this again or eat meat evar.

Any ideas on detox?  I know teas and stuff but I'm tired of hot liquids and want some realy vegan food.  Ahn tofu my lover I'm sorry I've wronged you.

Hope to hear from you guys!

My name is Cecily. I've been a vegetarian for 7 years. I'm a college student (luckily, my college makes veg options super easy to find), and  I love to cook.  I'm a dance major, usually this constitutes my exercise (although lately  -- the past 1 1/2 months) I have been going to the gym.

Anyway,  I'm 5'2''(1.57 meters) and weigh 119 (53.97 kg) as of this morning. My goal is to get to 105 by the summer (date I've set is June 7th, 'cause that's my  birthday).  I've tried to lose weight before but I have had no support -- my  hope is that by joining a community I can give/get the support I need to make my dream a reality.

It's been a long time since I was on LJ. It's good to be back :)

Hi there, I've been a partial-vegetarian for a number of years...until recently I still continued to eat chicken... but ever since I started living in my own place(away from my parents' house), I haven't felt the need to eat it anymore- one, because I don't like looking at, seeing, touching, smelling raw meat; two, because I want to force myself to learn how to prepare good meals properly without the use of meat(chicken I pretty much only ate because of my parents and so I wouldn't feel bad for turning what they made everyone else down); and three, I feel better eating a vegetarian diet and wish to still lose weight like I did during the summer(when I did eat quite a bit of chicken since I'd eat no other meat). Anyway, now I've gotten to the point where I need to learn about how to make protein-filled foods that are low in fat and calories. I tired of being hungry all the time and overeating to compensate.

I've come here for support and for any questions I can think of that maybe some of you might know the answers to. I'm terrible at cooking things but I'm determined to learn and become better at it. I wish to lose 40lbs(my long-term weight loss goal) and will accomplish that in however long it takes me to do it. Sooner is obviously better, but I'm not going to go crazy, lose a whole bunch at once and then gain it right back. I'm in this for the long haul. Also veggies and stir-frys are my favourite things ;)

Nice to meet you all!

I didn't see anything specific on the userinfo about promoting communities, sorry if I'm breaking any rules.

juicingjamboree -community for people who juice and are interested in learning about juicing, just started and needs members, etc.

Anyone can join, even if they've never heard of juicing and just want to figure out what it is. :)

I have a question. Little silly. Do any of you know of any multi-vitamins that the pills aren't huge? I don't really like large pills for the obvious choke scares. Anyway, let me know I'd really appreciate it!
