How long have you been veg?

Was vegetarian through a good chunk of the '90s and am coming back to this way of life. Eating very little meat now over the last three months and want to eliminate it from my way of eating 100% by summer's end.

Why are you vegetarian?

Combination of the nutritional (health) and ethical reasons. Heavily influenced yrs ago by the writings of Frances Moore Lappe and John Robbins.

What's your favorite veg food?

The yummy Walnut-Oatmeat "burgers" from Laurel's Kitchen, any hummus that is not plain and well-made Tabouli. And any baked eggplant dish is hard-to-beat. Being Italian, I do love pasta, but you've got to watch the portions.

Are you vegetarian or vegan?

Vegetarian. I do consume limited amts of egg and diary products.


Musician and writer and long-time Orlando resident. Mostly make my living working for a large company in the Recruiting and Training field.
