It's so true that no matter how much explanation you give about the vegan diet, it still doesn't register with some people. I recently retired from teaching. An assistant principal wanted to take me to lunch and asked where I wanted to eat (in an area that's not familiar to me). I then went through my vegan explanation to which he replied, "Well, what about shrimp?" I laughed and told him that if it once lived and breathed, I don't eat it or anything that came from it (which can sometime be dangerous because it's not on people's consciousness that cream, eggs, cheese, milk, etc. all come from animals.) Anyway, the AP looked at me like he had never heard of such! It all ended well, though. He was unable to go on the day that we agreed so I didn't have to go through the same thing with a server. Nice to meet you!

Welcome, Cellomarm! This is a great site and we are a great Team! We have a lot in common: I'm 58 and became vegan in March 2009, so I'm coming up on a year and love it! I don't love the hardship I have eating in certain restaurants, but I can handle it. Case in point: we went to Cracker Barrel today in NJ because we overshot the exit with the Qdoba and Panera, and here's what happened: I order the vegetable plate and with the server's help (telling her I don't eat foods with meat ingredients or dairy) ordered a baked potato with margarine for it, green beans, fried okra and a green salad with oil and vinegar on the side. I got green beans with an oily sheen and hammy taste, a baked potato coated with something oily and then sprinkled with salt and spices of some kind (I suspect it was rubbed with bacon grease or butter) and reading the fine print on the Promise discovered it had "whey (from milk)" in it. The fried okra was disgusting (I should have known!) and had a faint fishy taste, probably due to the fact that Friday is Fish Fry Day at Cracker Barrel. DH wasn't thrilled with his order either, and as we walked back to the car we said farewell to Cracker Barrel.

Hi,

Just want to introduce myself. I'm a very devoted 60 year old vegan and have been for a year. For 12 years before going all the way to the vegan way of life, I was a vegetarian. Glad to be a part of this team!
