How long have you been vegetarian/vegan?

Less than 1 year

If you weren't a lifer, what prompted your decision to become vegetarian/vegan?

I have been more and more distressed about eating animals in the past few years, and finally last summer I had a major dental surgery that had me only eating soft foods for almost a month. It was the turning point in my diet. I decided not to "go back" to my previous menu. I only added back the food items I wanted to put in my body. I started pescetarian, but then saw crabs gasping for life in Decatur farmers market and said THAT'S IT, I just can't do it any more!! No more animals. I'm vegetarian now but am striving to become more and more vegan.


Hi all! I just went vegetarian last summer and am now striving towards veganism. I won't be perfect but I want to try my best. It's nice to have veggie friends and a support group, especially for new ideas, so I wanted to join this meetup.
