My interest in a Vegan lifestyle is firmly based in the health benefits it offers. The medical community confirms it, statistics consistently show it, and I am personally convinced that a plant-based, whole foods diet is the healthiest for us and can not only protect us from a myriad of degenerative and diseases, but can reverse damage done by these conditions.
I'm interested in potlucks, recipe exchanges, and just any kind of social event that allows like-minded people to relax, enjoy each others' company and get motivated and inspired by the stories and experiences of others.
7.5. I am not a lifelong Vegan. I only adopted this lifestyle a couple years ago, so I feel that I still have areas in which I could gain knowledge, experience, and expertise. One of my goals in starting this Meetup is also to expand my own boundaries by learning from people.
Over the past several years I've slowly transitioned to a whole-foods (Vegan) diet. I love exploring cooking, new recipes, new ingredients, and find vegan cooking can be incredible dynamic and complex, but also super-simple, depending on my mood.
I had a really good time. It's a shame that more people weren't able to attend. Perhaps next time... :-)
