How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Living it.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Vegan food lovers getting together to share and grow together

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

The way I feel

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

In 2008. To up my level of health from a high protein, gym diet to a clean organic vegan diet

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?

I was looking for that next step to health, I found it in plants


I am Chef Matthew Purnell and I enjoy creating amazing raw dishes as well as consciously cooked no tofu vegan foods. Making veggies pop is my ambition! I would enjoy to have potlucks, classes, and meet people to feed! I like being fed too
