An opportunity to meet like-minded people for ourselves and our daughter, to share recipes/ideas, to grow a vegan and/or vegetarian community in Frederick and broaden its awareness and appeal both physically and emotionally. Perhaps even to help demystify both of them and show that there actually exists an amazing amount of 'plate appeal' to a vegan diet.
While my husband finds running to be more of a chore than anything else (he takes amazing photos, but alas, that is not considered an exercise), I run four to five days a week and am working on gaining confidence enough to run a half marathon.
My husband and I are both vegan and our daughter is a vegetarian who is learning to be more mindful of what is on her plate. I also have celiac sprue so our home is almost primarily gluten free. We were thrilled to learn about this local group!
Everyone we met from the group were just very open, welcoming, and truly friendly.
