I just read the book "Skinny Bitch" and it confirmed it for me that I DO want to be a vegetarian and work my way to be a vegan. I am not experienced at all on what to eat, what I can make, where I can find the food.
I would like to befriend someone who is very knowledgable in this area and has time to show me where online I can find recipes and how to guide my way into. I have never been one to eat any meat so that part is not difficult.
Also, I have a 14 month old daughter and would like to know how to ween her in that direction as well without sacrificing her diet.
I am VERY VERY interested in this and would love some guidance and help.
Thanks so much!

I have been vegetarian since I was a teen, and my 14 year old have been vegetarian since conception. Feel free to ask me anything!
Here are some of my favorite links: http://vegkitchen.com/kid-friendly-recipes/vegetarian-advantages.htm http://vegkitchen.com/kid-friendly-recipes/nourishing-toddlers.htm
I also strongly recommend the book China Study by T. Colin Campbell; it make a strong nutritional argument for being vegetarian.
