didn't know there was a vegetarian mommies board until today.
my name is maria, i live in colorado. i've been vegetarian going on 14 years.
i just had my first baby on march 31st, a boy, named carlos. my husband is 95% vegetarian because that's how we eat at home. he will eat meat when we go out to eat tho.
anyway, i want to raise our son vegetarian and my husband has no objections. i talked to the pediatrician about it before i even had the baby and she was very supportive. says some of her healthier patients eat vegetarian or mostly vegetarian diets.
anyway, just wanted to introduce myself!

Welcome! I know you from the other board i host, the breastfeeding board I am raising my DD vegetarian. My DH is not vegetarian and only recently has DD been wondering what is on DH's plate, etc. So in her world, DH eats a lot of "yucky" things, LOL!!!

yeah, i noticed you were here! now we can exchange recipes it's nice to see someone who is raising their child that way and it's good to know you haven't had any issues with her health from it. some people dont know how to get protein in their diet without eating meat.

when my husband's parents visit his stomach gets upset and he starts to feel sick from all the meat they eat and he eats while they're here. that's the only time animal is cooked in this house. he always says he's so glad to go back to eating vegetarian when they're gone because he feels so much better. he realizes that the diet will be better for our soon too, so i dont get any objections. he does worry that if later our son wants to try meat it's going to make him really sick.

Welcome. I've been veg since 98 and my family is similar to yours. My dh doesn't eat meat at home but will out and about. My ped is also supportive of raising my kids veg. Totally lucked out there. My husband has no problem raising them veg. Now if only I can get my fil to realize that it's not funny to offer dd hamburger...

those look really good! i bookmarked it. i'm going to give them a try. my 10 year old nephew is visiting this week so maybe i'll do this with him. tho i doubt he'll eat them. that kid only eats bread and cheese. i'm not even sure how he grows
