We recently moved to Alabama from the Northeast and I'm trying to commit more fully to being vegan.

If anyone has any local (Northern Alabama, Southern Tennessee, Atlanta) vegan resources that'd be awesome.

There's a limit to how much you can get online:)

That is a link for Birmingham Restaurants with Vegan and Vegetarian items.


Here a couple of veggie links for Atlanta:

Hope it helps a little.

Yeah, Knoxville has EarthFare, the Food Co-op, Nature's Pantry, and two Fresh Markets (not really vegan, but wonderful gourmet bread ^-~)
We also have some very vegan-friendly restaurants. The Falafel Hut, Sunspot, and (my favorite) the Tomato Head, which does many tofu sandwiches and vegan pizzas. Krogers also usually has a "Nature's Market" section where you can get lots of tofu, egg replacer, flax, soups, meat subs, etc.
Knoxville is pretty good for vegans if you know where to go.

That's too bad, knoxville is actually alright for vegetarians and vegans- but then it is a college town :3

Good luck, Dede. Just being vegetarian when I lived in southern ky about kicked my ass (I had friends that actually quit being veg down there...kinda a cop-out if you ask me, though). I had a friend who was vegan and I know he was able to do it okay.

Do you have Kroger's grocery stores down there? Most of them have a health food section that provides some good vegan basics. Also, just look up any health food stores in the area. If Bowling Green, Ky, had one I'm sure where you're going in Alabama does too.
