I was just chatting with my husband about how nice it would be to meet some other vegans and thought I'd run a google search.
In August 2011, I started cutting out meat because I had shockingly high cholesterol for a 20 year old - 204. My doctor sent me to a short class on ways to lower cholesterol and while I was in the waiting room before the class, Food, Inc. (documentary) was playing. I was disgusted and started doing more research, which left me appalled. I tried to go vegan immediately but failed many times - cheese and fried rice were awful addictions. I was finally successful in May 2013 when my husband also decided he didn't want to support the animal product industry.
I'm just joining to see what everyone else is doing! I still feel pretty new to this game.
Hello! I'm a 22 years old and I just moved back to the Denver area after a few years away. I will be starting college next semester (Spring 2014) so I can change careers - turns out that IT work isn't my thing.
