Hi, also just joined the Denver group. I'm honored to be here. Been a vegetarian for over 25 years, almost vegan, slowly going in that directions.
I saw Ann, one of the organizers of this and the Denver vegan group, at Nepal Cuisine in Boulder every Monday when they have a vegan lunch buffet. I finally asked her if she belonged to a meetup group and she told me about this one and the Denver group.
I grew up in South Dakota eating a meat and potatoes diet. Hunting and fishing was also a common activity. I gave up the hunting and fishing during High School, killing animals no longer made any sense to me. While I was in college my father died of a heart attack and that is when I started the process of switching to a vegetarian diet. I am still vegetarian, not quite vegan but slowly moving towards a vegan diet.
Potlucks, restaurants, cooking parties, cooking classes and demonstrations, lectures, speakers, meetups for fun like games (board and card).
