Are you currently a vegetarian/vegan?

After swearing off meat as an "at-home-vegan" and "dining-out-vegetarian" for a few months, I completed the transition to veganism in 2012. It's been an eye-opening experience--I had no idea that I liked vegetables so much!

How long have you been interested in the veg lifestyle?

I've been interested in vegetarianism since college, but I waited until I was finished with all of my schooling to start the process in a focused, healthy way that I could sustain long-term. I have been vegan since April 2012.

What types of activities are you interested in doing with this group?

Potlucks and other food-related activities, educational activities (like movie nights about vegetarianism or animals), and getting introduced to some kind of animal rescue activity. But non-vegan activities like bowling would be fun, too!


I'm a twenty-something living in the 'burbs, and would love to meet some more vegans in the area.

What Fran is saying about this Meetup Group

A warm group of people who are welcoming, fun, and interesting to talk to.
