How did you hear about this group?

From a Taste of Health flyer posted on a Choices bulletin board several years ago.

What's your favourite vegetarian restaurant in Greater Vancouver?

Hands down it's Indigo Age Cafe ( by Gastown. I take all my friends there and enjoy the responses that I get from the presentation, the creativeness, the tastes and textures, and the energy that comes from potent, raw food.

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

Nuba! The atmosphere scores big.

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

Mostly raw food vegan with a focus on nutrient density. The book "Becoming Raw" by nutritional researcher Vesanto Melina was key for me.

Are you also a member of Earthsave Canada (, the charity that promotes the plant based diet?

Yes, ma'am.


Retired monk, computer doctor, and meditation teacher in search of the best vegan cheesecake. Super duper passionate about the joys of a plant-based diet.

What Michael is saying about this Meetup Group

The people are friendly, the food is all about new tastes and textures, and you get to discover more of the city while filling your belly.
