How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Lead by example. Live happy, healthy and people want to know your secret.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

I see this meet up as an opportunity to gather with people who are as passionate about food and health as I am.

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

I am motivated by the active lifestyle I am capable of because I am healthy. With my choice of food, I know I’ve done my best for me and my environment. That makes me incredibly grateful for it. As I age, I hope to be serve as an example to others, who are considering this lifestyle, of what healthy living can do for you. I will always be motivated to spread the word:)

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

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?

My decision to omit animal protein from my diet changed my eating habits forever. For me it began with a quest to slow the aging process by becoming healthier. Turns out, it works! The China Study by T Colin Campbell and Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About by Kevin Trudeau were some of the books I read that were inspirational in my decision to be vegan.
