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

A vegan, 15yrs

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I read an article in Peta times while at college and finally woke up to what I had known all along but just never consciously admitted-I needed to be a vegetarian if I really cared about animals and people.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

The smoothies at vegan glory are quite tasty. I don't know how to make them, but I'll see what I can do to get the recipe

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

I don't know what type of meet-ups you prefer. Because we deal with such horrific issues I find that it helps to just have fun sometimes. Still one of the greatest demos I was ever at was at the farmer john plant in Vernon on Oct 2 (Ghandi's B-day). It was a silent candlelight vigil. About 100 of us stretched around the bldg. You could hear the pigs cries behind the walls. It was so moving, and emotionally draining.

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

The animalsvoice.com has a great list of sites. Allcreatures.org is getting pretty good as well.
