Do you consider yourself a vegan or a vegetarian? How long have you been one?

I have been a vegetarian for about 5 years.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I came to realize that since my dogs are so emotional and affectionate and intelligent, then other animals, including farm animals, must also have awareness and feelings such as love, and joy as well as fear. Obviously those animals have alot to fear and I can't even imagine how much they suffer emotionally and even physically while they are alive, being prepared for slaughter.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

It was a challenge for me to give up meat, but I did learn alot of non meat recipes. I have always enjoyed cooking, and now I realize that its not difficult to make tasty,high protein meals withought meat !

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

Hiking and House parties

Are there any great vegan resources/websites that we may have missed on our other page?

No answer yet


I live in Venice and I have my own business taking care of plants. I also have two beautiful dogs that I rescued. I spend alot of time walking and hiking with my dogs. I also love yoga and tennis and music. Want to meet people who care about animals.

What jeff is saying about this Meetup Group

Good group of intelligent people who have a conscience. But on Sat. night, a lot of people just want to have fun , so you might get more people willing to watch and think about such a serious issue on a different night, like Sunday maybe? However, I am willing to volunteer again even if its on Sat night.
