Why did you go veg?

Health reasons. I'd been semi-vegetarian for most of my adult life, but I swore off all food with a face after reading what doctors are saying about how excess protein contributes to heart disease, kidney disease and osteoporosis. If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure...And I'm sure it's only coincidence, but the last time I ate meat, I also had a wicked case of food poisoning. So, good-bye and good riddance.

What type of meetup events would you enjoy?

Potlucks, restaurant gatherings, etc.

Are you interested in hosting events or becoming an organizer?

No answer yet


I went vegetarian on New Year's Day 2011 and vegan on New Year's Day 2012. I enjoy Mediterranean and Indian foods but will try anything once.
