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

I've been vegetarian since birth and vegan for the past four months. It's the most amazing feeling in the world to be vegan.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I watched a few documentaries (such as Fowl Play) and read a few books about the food production industry in America and the animal cruelty associated with it. That one week of intensity made me quit eating dairy products instantly.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

Well, a lot of chocolate cake/brownie packages don't have milk products in them - so just replace each egg with 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and a little bit of baking powder and it turns out great! I can't live without brownies :)

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

Well, I'm new to meetup.com, but I think there is a lot of impact when there are showings of documentaries exposing animal cruelty.

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

Not that I know of - but if I find any, I'll definitely bring it up!

Introduction

Hi! I am currently a student at UCLA. I've been vegetarian all my life and vegan for the past four months and still going strong! I really want to get more involved in the animal rights community, and it seems like this group has it all! Thanks!
