Introduction

Hi, I've been inching toward veganism for years. Then I saw Food Inc and was stunned especially by what chickens are enduring these days. I couldn't participate in that. I love being a vegan, even though it's lonely and frustrating at times.

What Leslie Goldberg is saying about this Meetup Group

Choosing to eat a plant-based diet is radical. It is definitely against the flow and I think it is a powerful way to stand up for animals, the environment and folks in the Third World who often experience great hardship because of first world food choices. Eating a plant-based diet is also a way to take responsibility for our own health. But is is radical and it's good for us vegans to support each other on this path.

    Hi Leslie, I saw your profile on the Bkly Vegan Dinner M'tup. I'm sorry my husband & I won't be at Long Life today, because it sounds like you & I have many interests in common. We're vegan, have 3 dogs, & I'm an artist & author. 2 of my favorite novelists are Austen & Dickens. We live adjacent to El Cerrito. You can find out more about me at my webpages, & send me an email via that site, if you like. Regards, Patricia L

    Cute! He loves dogs that look like him. I think he's actually a blend of the finest chihuahua, corgi, bat, and lemur... Maybe a little bull in there, too. We should have a picnic meetup sometime where the four-leggeds can join in!

    Leslie, I appreciated your comments at book club in March. I don't think you should feel you have to apologize for your perspective. I didn't find it offensive nor did I think others sitting there seemed like they did either. When I was married I experienced much the same thing but mine was not religion-based . . just differences in family upbringing. Your comments resonated with me personally even if for different reasons.
