How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Searched Meetup.com on my own.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

To find out about local vegan events and veg*-friendly places

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

The fact that I am maintaining my health while saving the lives of animals and minimizing my ecological footprint.

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

Whole-Foods Plant-Based (WFPB), 99+% vegan since 2012, have been a (not always WFPB) vegetarian for much longer.

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?

Animal rights, environmental issues, long-term health concerns.

Introduction

Vegetarian since 1991, 99% vegan since 2012. My focus is on a low-fat, high-fiber, starch-based WFPB diet, with a consciousness about how this lifestyle not only promotes human health, but has a positive impact for animals and the environment.
