how did you hear about the boulder vegan meetup?

I searched vegetarian groups on meetup

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

I've been borderline for years, not daring to think to closely about the meat I ate because it already troubled me. A year ago I was asked to sign a petition against Walmart since they use a pork supplier that uses gestation crates and I watched the video because I didn't know why that was an issue. I couldn't stand seeing animals being treated so horribly and I vowed not to contribute to the suffering of animals by eating meat. Now I am looking at removing dairy and eggs which will be more of an adjustment.

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

I'm open most anything but a vegan/vegetarian 101 would be an awesome way for established people to share their knowledge and skills with newbies like me and my sons.

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

I certainly haven't mastered tofu nor have I found any tools that help me make sure I am providing proper nutrition on a daily basis. I've search for an online tool but they all fall short; I am hoping I missed something that someone in the group has found.

Introduction

I've became a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet for nearly a year ago and my son and I are going vegan. I enjoy connecting with others with similar ideas for fun and sharing ideas.

What Susan T is saying about this Meetup Group

I am a vegetarian and at the pot luck everyone I spoke to was very kind, open and accepting so overall it was a positive night.
