How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

I love to cook, and am always baking cakes, cookies and pies for my neighbors and friends. Once they discover that all treats are vegan, they begin to re-think their butter, cream and milk habits. I took a baking course and brought in my vegan versions of recipes we made in class--seemed to change many minds (even my instructor's!) about how delicious vegan food is. : )

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Since becoming vegan I've realized that I have very few friends who see the world the way I do--that animals were not put here for our amusement or ingestion, and that we have failed miserably at protecting them from harm. So I'm seeking new friends for friendship and even dating who are following the same path, who have come to some of the same conclusions. Let's do some potlucks and spread the love! : )

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

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

Four years ago I attended a lecture by a vegan author and was appalled by the endemic cruelty in the dairy industry. Before that I stubbornly hung on to the idea that cheese wasn't "that bad" for cows and that since I was a vegetarian I was already preventing loads of animal cruelty and death. But once my eyes were opened of course I couldn't turn back and am so happy I went vegan.

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?

Introduction

I was a vegetarian for 25 years, and vegan for the last 7. Would love to meet like-minded souls for good food, conversation and fun. : )
