Welcome, Karl, you'll find lots of support here, along with excellent advice and all the recipes you'll ever need. You might want to check out the New Veggies board if you need ideas for what to cook, I personally love Bryanna's recipes, they're just so good. I went to her cooking vacation last July and got to meet her, also met some vegans from England, Florida, southern California. It was really fun!

People do make fun of vegetarianism but that doesn't bother me, I just chalk it up to their own ignorance and it's their problem, not mine. At this point, it's been so long since I ate meat that it really is a whole different mindset, while they're making fun of me and eating their various dead animals, I'm happily cooking fresh healthy and delicious veggie food in my kitchen. Even my husband is beginning to like a lot of "my" food and he has always been a really picky eater who eats no vegetables or anything other than animal stuff. But now I serve him spinach salad with orange "bacon" dressing, or Caesar's Salad, chili and cornbread, Italian dishes, things he even is starting to request! You just have to get into the cooking thing because it's hard to find vegan food in restaurants.

Good luck with your journey, and do check in here often, you won't feel so all alone and you will more easily "stay on track" because there are always new foods to try out and you can get so many ideas here!
