I will be going vegan. I'm nervous. I want to make sure my family and myself are getting the proper nutrition. I still want to stay gluten, and wheat free. I was ordering grassfed beef until I relized how even grassfed cows are treated. And poultry.. Forget it.I always thought about going vegetarian. But I watched a movie called "vegucated" and it changed my whole perspective about eating, nutrition, and humanity. So any advice would be great! I have a 2 year old and a husband. I don't want too much soy in our diet. I just really hope I do this right.

Let me know how it goes :) maybe have a blog? Write about your experience shopping for food, trying new dishes and your family's reaction to them.

I'm a vegetarian. I went vegan for 9 months and it was an interesting experience. I had a very hard time eating out, so you should anticipate problems when eating out. Also, you will need to make sure you read a lot of labels. Something might appear to be vegan/vegetarian but then come to find out the stock was made of meat..ect...

Anyway, I've been vegetarian for 11 years. I'm starting to move towards the other direction. I'm now eating more dairy and starting to eat seafood. I couldn't go vegan again.... I missed cheese too much! LOL

Good luck

I would talk to a doctor or nutritionist before making such a huge change so they can give you advice on how to do it properly and healthily.

Sounds like you need to do some more research before making the switch

Yeah, I am. So far I have been making "green smoothies". We still have meat in our freezer..lots of it. I would hate to just toss it. I guess I am slowly easing into it. I may be vegetarian then ease into vegan. But I have been doing much research, and still learning.

Why would you even want to? We are carnivores by nature, just like most other mammals on the planet!
