Vegan--have been for a year and a half. Have been vegetarian most of my adult life.
Eating together, sharing information, and working together to spread the word about the benefits for everyone of eating a plant based diet. Our carnism is a major sociological characteristic of our species which doesn't make sense for us or the animals and is so hard to get people to even think about it.
I'm currently reading The World Peace Diet; and Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows. I would like to help my church look at the values we have of peace and compassion and how we might follow those values with our food choices.
I'm a long-time vegetarian and vegan for about a year and a half. I love it. I feel great AND I have a growing mission to convert everyone to a plant-based diet. I don't know how anyone can avoid thinking about their food and the anmals.
