How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Through MeetUp

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

It's a wonderful way to meet other veggie people, as well as to discover new places to eat.

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

Concern for animals and the environment were the starting point, and those are hard to separate from the welfare of humankind. And as it turns out, going veg is good for our health, too!

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

My husband Dennis and I became vegan in mid 2010.

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?

We had been vegetarian since 1998, but we were troubled by what we learned about the dairy and egg industries. We kept cutting back on those items more and more, until finally we realized we were ready to change for good.

Introduction

I'm looking forward to activities with other vegans and vegetarians.
