From going to the Boulder And Beyond Meet-ups
I was vegetarian off and on for years, ( giving up cows, pigs and sheep 29 years ago, but hanging on to birds and fish, dairy and eggs...) and the light finally dawned after listening to numerous podcasts by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau , and realizing that the cow's dairy and eggs were some of the worst of the worst :) I thought about how I had nursed my own babies and how insulted i was that we are expected to hide our nursing while in public, yet, dairy cows are exploited and even ridiculed for their milk production and udders. I am still embarrassed that it took me soooo long to make the connection that we do not need milk from a cow, and enslaving them for it seemed criminal.
I like potlucks and cooking demos.
My husband and i moved to Boulder in June of 2011 from northern Va. We LOVE it here ! Great hiking, birding and SO many more vegans ! I've been vegan for 7 years. I teach vegan cooking to groups and private instruction. Frontrangevegan.org
