What's your favorite veg-friendly restaurant in the Valley?

I really, really like Green... I also like Pita Jungle, but obviously you have to read the menu carefully! I really want to go to more restaurants though, because I'm not familiar with a lot of strictly-veg places.

What is appealing to you about a Veg-friendly lifestyle?

Well, I've always been a vegetarian, and I've always had great energy, pretty great skin, and never had any kind of medical problems. I attribute it to the fact that I do eat so well and I've never poisoned myself with beef, pork, etc. Of the vegetarians I've met, they've always been really cool, welcoming, and not in-your-face, and I hope to meet a community like that here in Phoenix.

Where would you like to see events?

Restaurants would be awesome, but I'm also down for potlucks in people's homes, volunteering with animal events, bowling tournaments (or something like that) to raise money for animal causes... etc. :)


Hi! My name is Melissa H. and I've been a vegetarian my whole life. I'm transitioning into veganism, and I'm excited to participate in the Veg Phoenix community!
