How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

From Meetup.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Looking to meet more people who share similar values.

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

The environment

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

Went vegan for real at the end of 2010. Toyed around with it a bunch before that but always seemed to fall for cheese. I got cheese beat now though. Doesn't even really tempt me unless I haven't been sleeping, working out and eating junk. Otherwise the temptation is gone.

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?

So many reasons. The health of our planet, the health of our bodies, the ethics of forcing the birth of livestock animals and feeding them copious amounts of food while actual human beings starve to death everyday and animal rights.


Vegan for what started out as ethical reasons but now eat healthier whole foods and really, really like the way it feels as well. So what exactly is the downside to being plant strong/vegan ?

What Dave E. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group really fun like minded people ! Awesome !
