I did a google search for boulder vegans! Glad I did.
Over the last couple years, I have been dealing with several health issues as have those closest to me. In one years time, my grandma was diagnosed with a brain tumor and my mom with ovarian cancer. Ironically, being diagnosed with cancer wasn't enough to make my mom change her diet, but it was enough to make me change mine. Over the course of my journey, though I started out by seeking health, my ethical attachment to not eating animals has increased profoundly, as has my sense of environmental stewardship.
Mostly, just meeting up for food or having potlucks. Perhaps, meeting up for cool veg inspired movies and other events.
Mostly, I'm looking for a sense of community and others of like mind. At this point, I'm the only vegan I know in Boulder. It sucks being alone. Sometimes, I feel like an alien. I'm hoping to change that.
Hey! My name is Danielle Gardner. I'm a relatively new vegan. I started transitioning about a year and a half ago, and at this point have been 100% for a few months.
