What's your favorite food or dish?

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

Vegan for five years. I read Skinny Bitch and that was that. I truly, absolutely, positively LOVE being vegan. I am not a fan of the stereotypes and ridiculing that goes along with this life-style, but I am so thrilled that more and more people are not only respecting vegans, they are becoming vegan themselves! I've found that so many non-vegans only struggle with their own will-power, and wish they could refrain from participating in animal cruelty but just don't know how to stick with it, find the motivation, and keep the connection with their intentions. My boyfriend was my first conversion, and he went from double-pastrami sandwiches every night, to going vegan cold-turkey (hehe). I didn't push it on him... he simply saw through me how EASY and rewarding it was to be vegan... and how fun it can be!

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to play music, hike, read, work out, do yoga, cook, bake, spend time with the boyfriend, our two chihuahuas and our cat, watch movies, watch my favorite TV shows, geek out and play World of Warcraft... I like to enjoy my free time. :)

Introduction

I have been vegetarian for twelve years, vegan for the last five years, and on/off raw vegan for the last two years! I am new to Portland and look forward to interacting with other like-minded individuals.
