Do you rock as a vegetarian, vegan, veg-cuisine enthusiast or veg-hmmm?

I rock as a Vegan.

Can you tell us what rocks you (motivates you) to live consciously?

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.

What are Hoboken and Jersey City restaurants or organizations doing that rocks? What could they do better?

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.

What would you like to get out of V Rock! The Hoboken + Jersey City Vegetarian + Vegan Meetup?

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.

Introduction

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
