What is your current state of veggie-ness? Vegan for a year? Vegetarian for nine? Just had your first week of kale?

I have been vegan for over four years now. While it was not the easiest thing at the start, I think it's one of the best changes I've ever made in my life! I can't imagine life without a good soycurl sandwich or kale chickpea slaw. We are some of the most blessed vegans in the world living in Portland- let's make the most of it!

How long have you lived in Portland?

I have lived in Portland for almost 4 years now. I grew up in St. Louis, MO and went to college at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. I visited Portland for the first time in June 2011 and FELL IN LOVE. Some of my favorite spots are Washington Park, the Bye and Bye, the Waypost, Barista coffee, DC Veg food cart, yeah...the list goes on.
