I’ve kinda done it the wrong way round (posting in the other forums before introducing myself) <<== I wasn’t being rude intentionally!
Anywho… I was veggie for nearly five years then made the switch to veganism just over a year ago. I found the transition really easy & didn’t miss much (even chocolate! ). It’s not too hard being vegan in the UK, there are plenty of vegan products to get you by & a lot of restaurants are happy to accommodate (90% of the time you do have to explain to them what a vegan actually is - but they get maximum points for effort!). I suppose it also helps that i love cooking - made a really nice “shephards pie” the other night!
90% of time?
Really? I thought UK should be more advanced in this sense. In Dubai I had to explain it in 100% of cases. And there were big problems because people working there not always spoke good English.
Do you have vegan restaurants over there?
Yeah, there are quite a few vegan restaurants over here & also veggie restaurants with many vegan choices!
Sadly they tend to be confined to the big cities, like London (i’m out in the sticks) - I checked out a great vegan chinese “all you can eat for a fiver” buffet restaurant just before xmas… It was great! … very nearly had to undo the top button on my jeans - I was THAT full!
I have to admit I’ve never visited a pure vegan restaurant in my life. I haven’t even seen one.
Dolly, did you notice how funny our avatars are combined?
Hey i am ruchika from India. I have been a vegetarian since birth. Currently i am living in New York and i find it kind of easy to get vegetarian food here. I already did post in a few forums before i found this one(sorry about that) Well its nice to see that there are plently of like minded people in this world.

Ruchika is my name, it means longing or desire and it also means beautiful(well i am not beautiful)
