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

I gave up meat in 2007 and went "mostly vegan." Went 100% vegan in January of 2012.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I read the book "Skinny Bitch" and went vegan right away, but fell off the wagon with cheese for a couple of years during 2010 and 2011. It took meeting a vegan in person for me to realize I had no good reason to consume any animal products.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

Pineapple cashew quinoa stir fry is pretty great-- I think it's in the cookbook "Veganomicon."

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

Let me get back to you....

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

The book "Vegan Freak" was just what I needed when I first went totally vegan. I recommend it.


I'm a busy schoolteacher looking to make time for activism and vegan outreach.
