Plant-based Whole Foods (no free oils, no salt, no sugar, vegan), a la "Dr. T. Colin Campbell's definition in his great book, "Whole: Towards a New Science of Nutriton.""
20 years vegetarian, then 14 years vegan (8 of those "plant-strong," no free oils).
On and off many many moons... Worked at Goddard Spaceflight Center (2 NASA satellite missions), high-level gov't consulting in DC proper (would fly up frequently until eventually officing across from the Mall). Recently spent several years in PA, care-taking a farm-like property and building/maintaining a 1,500+ sq. ft. organic vegetable/fruit/flower garden.

After my first meet-up with them, I'm very encouraged and so far, appears to be a very friendly, enjoyable, and interesting group of people.
