What's your favorite food or dish?

Can't say I have one favorite, depends on my mood. My short list includes: reuben sandwich(Native Cafe is the best), pasta with marinara and Field Roast Italian sausage, broccoli (I am a broccoli fiend).

How old are you?

I will be 62 in April.

How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I've been vegan for about 3 years, been vegetarian for 6 (plus a few years in 20s). My spiritual path led to adopting a vegetarian diet. I was okay with milk, cheese and eggs cause they weren't killed for food right? But eventually I learned the horrible truth about the dairy and egg industry and started down the road to being vegan. Now I'm passionate about our mother the Earth and all her children.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Read, walk, talk, eat, meet like minded people, hang out with family and friends.
