Elaine V.


Charleston, SC

Member since:

July 31, 2013

What are your reasons for joining the group?

I had been a vegetarian for almost 10 years before eating poultry again. I want to get back to being a vegetarian if not a vegan, for health reasons.

Are you vegan? vegetarian? veg-curious? How long has it been?

I went vegetarian for health reasons. Then after reading about how animals are treated before being killed for food, I decided to become a vegetarian. Coming to Charleston and being around my son, I began eating meat again. Now I want to go back to vegetarianism. Being around like-minded people will help.

What is your favorite place to dine out, and your favorite meal there?

Osaka, Bean Curd with homestyle vegetables.


I'm Elaine. I moved to the Charleston area over two years ago. I have given up meat (again) to start off the New Year. I am slowly going to give up the other unhealthy foods in my diet.

What Elaine V. is saying about this Meetup Group

The group is very passionate about the animals. They will have me a total vegan by the end of the year.
