Why did you go veg?

I went vegetarian in July 2012 and vegan in December 2012. It began as a health decision as part of a weight loss and wellness journey that I have been on for several years. Once I went veg and found this group, I began learning about the vegan lifestyle. The more I learned (especially about the treatment of animals), I could no longer continue to eat animal products or support the companies that produce them.

What type of meetup events would you enjoy?

I would like to hear everyone's tips - things that work for them, recipes, what their journey into vegetarianism was like, how they plan meals, where the best restaurants are, etc. I'm a social person so any type of meetup sounds fun to me!

Are you interested in hosting events or becoming an organizer?

My name is Jenn and I have been Vegetarian since 2012 and went Vegan in January 2013. I am looking for like-minded people to share ideas, recipes, restaurants, etc. So happy I found this group!
