I rock as a Vegan.
Since I made the decision to eat a plant-based diet, it has gone far beyond my initial concern which was inhumanity to animals - a very harsh education that came quickly. Then it moved on to health as I learned more and more about what a plant-based diet meant for me and now it has spilled over into every part of my life from the things I wear and buy and read about to the people I want to be connected to. I really want to have a community of fellow Vegans/Vegetarians to talk to and share thoughts and stories and recipes and fun and the joy of life with.
I'm in Jersey City and there isn't much that I know of yet in terms of restaurants. I believe Marco and Pepe now has a few Vegan dishes on its menu. And Subia's is an organic Vegan food store that carries Vegan/Vegetarian food which is fantastic. I'd love to see more Vegan restaurants opening sometime soon. I'd love to see a Whole Foods store in downtown Jersey City. Or a Trader Joe.
I hope to meet people who have a similar mindset and just having a conversation with a group who believes in a lot of the same things would be a wonderful starting point to the stars..... who knows what can come of it.
Hello. I became a Vegan 4-1/2+ years ago - changed my life! I would dearly enjoy meeting other local Vegans and Vegetarians and your group sounds inspiring. Hope to meet all of you soon. Barbara
I love V Rock - can't wait for the tee shirts! Barbara
