How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

I think from Sandra Schrift--I honestly don't remember.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

I am involved with another vegan group, but they meet at the same time I have a standing tennis game, so I was looking for other alternatives.

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

My health

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

90% 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?

I just felt that it was time to treat my internal body as well as I treat my external body. Nourishing myself with live food just made sense to me. I also just read the Paradigm Diet book and they make an incredible case about why plant based diet is better for me and the planet.


Hi--I'm Elizabeth Fried and have been attempting to stay vegan as best as I can, given my lifestyle. I'm enjoying meeting like-minded, health-conscience people.
