Yeah, I agree about eating healthy vegan food. When people find out I'm a vegan they often start asking about what can I eat and assume that my choices are limited. Actually, in my opinion, vegan diets are often much more interesting and I don't feel limited at all.
Glad to meet you. I actually live in Seymour, but I work in Maryville. I dont know how long it has been since you last visited but Maryville has grown quite a bit in the fifteen or so years I have lived here. It seems that everything within a 30 mile radius of Knoxville is just a suburb of the city.
Hi! I've been a vegan since 1996. Before that I was an on again/ off again vegatarian all of my life. As a child, it just seemed wrong to me to eat other beings. But as I had little choices, I ended up reverting several times until college. Once I did more research into the meat & dairy industries, I was convinced that veganism was the way to go.
