Not a veggie but may stop eating all but fish.
I guess what I meant to say is that I have'nt seen or heard of any vegan friendly places around here but I live in a secluded area.
Cloudcroft: you'll be about 25 miles from where I am. Hope your husband gets the job. Stop by the NM forum if you haven't already. I like Cloudcroft.
There's an apple festival going on this weekend. It's in High Rolls but that's down the road about 5 miles from Cloudcroft. Nice people in this area too.
Xpat- there are tons of hiking trails here and skiing too.

Yes, I have already badgered the NM forum a bit. We went camping there this summer to check it out. I had driven through it while moving here in February, and my husband spent a week there in late April for training. The housing prices are so good in Timberon, but I couldn't imagine my boys riding 45 minutes on the school bus (well, someone from the area said it was about a 45 minute ride). I wish there was a coop in Alamogordo. Well, we stopped in at the natural food/bulk store quickly on our way home. Have you shopped there? Are the prices decent? What about the local grocery stores in Alamogordo--do they have much for veggies (tofu, boca, organic produce, etc.)? I think I want to start ordering all my grains in bulk, and hopefully we will stop moving and I can really get a good garden going.

Alamogordo is where you'll be shopping most of the time.
CC has a small store as does Timberon but for regular shopping days, Alamo is the place to go.
It has a Walmart and a Lowes grocer.
If you or your husband can use the commissary, that would be a plus as they've got all types of foods.
Las Cruces has a farmers market, I believe it's every Sunday.
Natures Pantry is the health food store in Alamo and they have tofu. They also order any items you need and they don't have.
If I were you though, I would stock up on the grains just so you'll have them when you get here.
When are you moving? You can DM me if you want.

For me it's a way of life. I hardly ever get cravings for meat and the odd time that I have one I just visualize the process that goes into getting meat to the supermarket. I'm lucky that I live in Vancouver, one of the most veg friendly cities in North America. I don't usually have a problem when I eat out, although when I lived in the suburbs it was a little more tricky although even Denny's has a veggie burger. The issue I face is that most of the veg restaurants here are not the most kid friendly places, lots of hipsters and D.I.N.K.S. My kids are very well behaved so we go these places anyway even though I know some wish we weren't there.
