1) Why did you become a vergetarian? (protest, enviroment, health, culture, family)
I would say it is a mix of everything, but mostly for health and animal-loving reasons.

2) Were you influenced by other vegetarians? (Yes, No)
My brother tried going vegetarian a few years back. It lasted about 6months. I want to prove to him that it can actually be done...

3) To what degree are you a vegetarian?
Vegan (but will eat an egg here or there when I have no other choice)

4) How easy do you find buying vegetarian foods? (Very Easy, Easy, Not very easy, Difficult)
I would say in between. I can find some stuff pretty easily, but others, I have to go on a 40min bus ride to get to Health Tree store to find what I'm looking for

5) Are any of your friends/family vegetarians? (yes, no)
Some friends don't eat red meat. And my DH and DS are vegans too.

6) Do you think vegetarianisim is a healthier option? (Yes No)
Yes

7) Have you had any negative health issues to do with your diet? (Yes, No)
No

8) Do you take an iron supliment (Yes. No)
There is half my daily amount in my multi-vitamin that I take every day... and I get the rest from my food

9) Do you think you get enough protein? (Yes, No)
Well, I do a lot of research online and have calculated that I need in between 60-65gr of protein per day. Now, I eat a lot of beans and grains so I think I can actually achieve that goal pretty easily.

10) Do you know what foods provide protein? (Yes, No)
Yep
