My wife discovered this group while we were considering our Thanksgiving options and the Thanksgiving event was an impressive introduction to the group.
I went straight from omnivorous diet to a vegan diet immediately upon randomly discovering a very small slice of the vegan literature on the internet in college 13 years ago. I literally became vegan on the day that I was introduced to the term "vegan" and it is one of the best decisions I've made and one I am proud of. At the time, I didn't know any other vegans or vegetarians so I got a lot of experience early being hassled by family and friends and I think that process helped me solidify and clarify my motivations for being vegan. There are so many reasons to go vegan and it is so much easier to discover well-articulated arguments for it now. I am excited about the future of veganism.
Our children are very active and any activities that provide an outlet for squirmy energy are wonderful :)
Hello, my name is Jason and I've been a vegan for 13 years. I have a lot of respect for the choice to go vegan and I'm interested in being part of the vegan community along with my wife, Vicki, and kids, Ben and Adelle, who are all vegan as well!
