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

I'm a vegan - only eat nuts, legumes, beans, fruits, veggies and no animal products. Started last August 2008.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I watched disgusting animal slaughters and brutality on PETA-TV and said no more to animal consumption - hello fruits and veggies and I've been having a great time discovering new foods and new taste sensations.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

I'm still in the stage of discovering recipes myself and have been trying out vegan restaurants (Native Foods) and many vegan Indian restaurants, so I have nothing to offer at the moment.

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

Why not educate children in public schools about the atrocities of animal slaughter so they have a choice not to kill animals? Actually, I'm just discovering the vegan and animal events myself and will attend the upcoming veggie parade - yipee!

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

I'm still discovering websites myself.


I love animals, want to be a voice for them & educate people. I saw horrors on PETA-TV & instantly became a vegan. I started getting involved in animal rights last summer by protesting, writing letters, volunteering at Animal Acres & Kitten Rescue.
