Hi Little Minnie,
I am new to this site and the message boards. I have a husband and two boys (10 years old, 2 years old). My husband and 2 year old are both vegans (sort of) so it was easier for me to move over into veggie/vegan world. My 10 year old and I still eat chicken and turkey fish. I say sort of with my husband and 2 year old because they do eat fish, but that is it! My family (siblings and mom) that visit are not vegetarians at all and when I host get togethers I always sneak in a meat-free meat (soy) dish and let them know what it is AFTER they begin chowing down. You have to find really tasty alternatives first and then slowly introduce them. For example, I make cornbread/sage stuffing w/Morningstar Sausage Grillers meat-free meat. The taste is soooo flavorful that everyone asked me what was in my stuffing ("Hey, we thought you didn't eat meat!") because they couldn't get enough of it. When I told them they were surprised. My nanny tried some also among other stuff I've made and she is now becoming a vegetarian AND lost 20lbs from eating healthier after being in my household. All that to say, you can do it. Its a gradual change. Little by little and experimenting with recipes, and before you know it...they will love your meat free meals.

Even with that...I'm still a terrible IBS sufferer caused by stress mainly I think. Learning what I can't eat. Broccoli and red onions destroys me. I already limited most dairy from my diet but I would eat cheese occasionally, now that has to go too. I have to be totally dairy free not only for IBS but for Sinusitis. This will be an interesting journey!!
