How did you hear about this group?

I started it.

What's your favourite vegetarian restaurant in Greater Vancouver?

Among my favourites are Graze, Indigo Food, Nut Tree Café and Chau Veggiexpress.

What's your favourite non-veg restaurant that has veg options?

My favourites are Grub, Axum, East is East, Nuba, and Noodle Box.

WHICH diet do you follow: vegetarian, vegan, pescaterian (fish but no meat), flexitarian (usually veg, but not always), raw foodist or omnivore?

99% vegan, not working towards 100%.

Are you also a member of Earthsave Canada (www.earthsave.ca), the charity that promotes the plant based diet?

No longer on the Board of Directors but still a member. It's a worthwhile charity to support, since no other charities seem to be educating us about the impacts of food choices on the environment.

Introduction

I love meeting people with great stories to share. Love sharing tips on restaurants and recipes. I don't have a smart phone so do not see last minute event messages. I have a problem with my right hand, so prefer not to shake hands.

What Nancy is saying about this Meetup Group

Hard to generalize once a group gets above a thousand people! I especially like that this group is welcoming to non-vegetarians. We all have an awareness that our food choices impact the planet and wanting to shift to more plant based foods more often unites us. New people have sometimes felt uncomfortable seeing that the people who attend our events are all long time good friends when in fact the people they were seeing were mostly strangers! It's just that kind of group--people make friends fast because we tend to have a lot in common.
