Why are you interested in joining the Vegetarian/Vegan Club of the Ozarks?

I've been a practicing vegetarianism for several years now and am always interested in discovering new meals to prepare and learning more about vegan foods.

Which of these best describes you: exploring vegetarianism, almost vegetarian, vegetarian, almost vegan, vegan, or raw vegan.

I would say I'm mostly vegetarian. I eat cheese once in a while and I will eat fish once in a great while. Trying different options is interesting and most of the time tastes great!

What is your primary motivation for eating a more plant-based diet (i.e., health, animal welfare, environment)?

My primary motivation for choosing a vegetarian diet was originally health reasons. I've learned how factory farming treats animals with no regard and makes the food unhealthy. Through factory farming, raising cattle has a huge negative impact on our environment.


I began eating vegetarian for health reasons about 10 years ago. I discovered some great vegetarian recipes. I am also sympathetic towards animal rights. I can see how being vegetarian or vegan can improve the environment.
