how did you hear about the boulder vegan meetup?

on the chalkboard @ atlas purveyors :)

what made you decide to go Vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

from an early age, i remember thinking that eating a burger was not just food but also a dead cow. this devastated me, and so began my veg journey. when i started following a vegetarian lifestyle, there was no other reason than compassion and sadness for the mistreatment of animals. that is still my guiding principle, but as i have grown older and been able to get more information, i developed into a vegan and began to recognize the severe environmental impacts of eating and using animal products, the human rights issues -- including hunger -- and also realized that it was okay to embrace the fact that eating veg is also a physically healthy choice for my body.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

potlucks, hikes, yoga, dancing!, cycling, music, general adventures!

on your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with
