hey, I'm Aviva, 19 years old, and I have wanted to be vegetarian for a looong time. Well... when I was up at college I wasn't strong willed enough. But now I know I can be. I've decided it's time to really do it. And I will.
Only other problem is my mother. She's convinced that you can't be vegetarian and get all the nutrients you need. I've told her I can. I've promised I'll eat healthily etc. She won't buy it. Any thoughts on how to convince her to let me do this?
(For starters I will be giving up red meats. Then if I can keep it up, poultry will go. I haven't decided whether or not I want to cut fish eventually but I have a while before I have to think about that. In the meantime... Boca burgers, veggie casseroles, etc. YUM! I'm happy with my decision.
