Hello, am steveo from scotland.
Just decided to go vegan, so going to get first food shop and get rid of the junk. Not sure of all drinks and foods that are vegan but will be good finding out.
Into sports - soccer, golf, badminton - and also training at local gym.

Hey man, welcome to VF :)

Good luck with that - might be worth heading to your local coop for the first food shop. They label all their own-brand stuff as vegan so takes all the thinking out of it.

I dont think they label whether something is junk or not though :wink:

Only the big Co-ops are any good - my local one has virtually no vegan own-brand products (certainly no dairy-free margarine), and charges £1.50 for the most basic brand of soya milk :shock:

solid decision mate, welcome to the forum!

If any problems, feel free to ask, folks here can be pretty helpful and (shock and horror) knowledgeable. Thats what the new vegan section is for.

Do you train at the Infamous Templehall Gym? Great strong guys coming from there, and a decent rower.

Thanks everyone.

First shop was okay, quite a lot of foods seem to be fine but only say vegetarian on them.
