How would you describe your current diet?

I have a rather boring diet because I am a horrible cook with no creativity in the kitchen! I also have to watch my weight, and am trying to be a sugar-free, low carb vegan and it's not easy. My biggest complaint with vegan foods and recipes is the large amount of sugar they often include. I am interested in health, but am vegan for the animals more than anything else. Therefore, I do not fear the artificial sweeteners and have been trying to make baked goods and other foods with extra fiber and very little sugar. I love my steamed veggies and tofu, and I love gluten. What's with the war on gluten? I love it. I love nuts and seeds, pita bread, fruits, etc.

What sorts of Meetups would you like to see us do?

No answer yet

Introduction

I'm an animal lover, and while I have been a vegetarian since I was 12 years old, I finally saw the light this year and have transitioned to veganism. I live with an avid meat eater and have no local friends that are vegan.
