Are you vegan or vegetarian? If so why did you go veg?

There was no specific "catalyst" other than a spiritual nudge...last September I just decided that I wasn't going to eat beef or pork anymore and I haven't looked back. Now, I no longer eat poultry and my diet consist of about 10% seafood (and I'm transitioning away from that). I feel so much healthier since I've started living this healthier lifestyle (I also try to avoid processed foods, dairy, GMOs, and other checmically treated/enhanced foods).

What type of meetup events would you most enjoy?

I'd definitely love "kid friendly" events, I have a 2 year old that I'm guiding toward this path as well. Any events where there is good whole food and likeminded people is great for me!

Are you interested in hosting events or becoming an organizer?

Hi, I'm Nicole and have been transitioning into a vegetarian lifestyle. My current goal is to transition into veganism and then possibly a raw food diet for my child and I. I look forward to the opportunity to learn and grow with everyone!
