How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Vegan friends

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

I live in San Diego and I'm vegan, so this is the perfect meetup! My wife, Anita, and I maintain a vegan household. I cook and she (happily) eats and cleans up!

If you had to choose, which of these do you care the most about? Animal welfare, your health, the planet, or humanitarian efforts?

Not hurting animals.

How would you label yourself when it comes to lifestyle and nutrition? (Vegan, vegetarian, plant-based foodie, vegan-curious, omnivore, locavore, etc.)

Vegan since June 1997.

If you've already "Gone Vegan", why'd you do it? If you're considering "Going Vegan", what's inspiring you consider making the decision?

When I (finally!) learned I didn't need to eat animals to be healthy, I could no longer justify them suffering and dying for my dining pleasure.


Ethics, health, environment: No need to hurt animals - Be Vegan!

What Mike W. is saying about this Meetup Group

Having been vegan since 1997 and involved with nearly every animal-rights group in San Diego, I was amazed that I didn't know about this group until the fall of 2013. Who would have thought there were over 1000 vegan/ish people in the area willing to share food and philosophies? Now I'm spreading the word! Kudos to Jared for greatly expanding membership!
