Hi everyone. As you’ve guessed I’m new and so I’m just doing the rounds and introducing myself.
My name is Helen, I’m 22 and a student living in Suffolk, England. I’ve been a lacto-vegetarian for about 2 months (I decided to “come out” after realising I wasn’t eating meat anymore – and for other ethical reasons which I’m sure you’re all familiar with).
Anyway, I do have a dilemma as I am allergic to eggs (which is cool - as you know the egg industry is a vile place and the damn things taste ing to boot). I’m also allergic to mushrooms (which rules a whole lotta nice veggie food out).
I think I might be lacking in protein (although I have been forcing Quorn down my throat), but I don’t like eating meat substitutes, as I hate the taste of meat anyway! But I don’t want to be lacking in anything so I take supplements to make sure.
Well I’ll stop ranting on now…If anyone has any tips or would like a chat please get in touch!
