"Atlanta area veg heads are not very social"


Let me preface this by saying, we here at VeglifeAtl are the most social veg heads we know. So clearly this person was referring to all of you other vegetarians/vegans in Atlanta. That being said, we had the fortunate/unfortunate opportunity (depending on how you look at it) to speak with a fellow Atlanta vegetarian this past week and a few revelations came from that conversation.

Part 1 of which we are sharing with you today.

"Veg heads in Atlanta are not very social. Nor do they interact very well with one another."

We'll give details of what prompted this person to make this bold statement in our next post.

Really? Could it be true?

What say you?

Guess who's coming to town?!!!

Tony is coming to Atlanta!!!! We're so excited!


The Falcons have acquired Tony Gonzales from the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday for a draft pick next year. He is one of the true pros of the league! He's a professional, he's productive and he's vegan!! How awesome is that?!


What a valuable, special trade!


From Tony...


"With Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White and now myself, we have the chance to be in the top five in the league in offense every year," Gonzalez said. "How could I not be excited to join that team?"


How could we not be excited he's on his way! In fact, he'll be here tomorrow, Friday!

We've all become vegetarian/vegan for various reasons. The point is, we are all here and happy about it! But we're curious over here at VegLife Atlanta, when and how would you approach this topic (going veg)with your friends that happen to eat meat?





(hmmm great article idea if you're looking for something to write about!)
