Googling for local vegan groups.
Looking to explore this lifestyle beyond my own experience, expand my own knowledge, and make some like-minded friends.
Well, I guess without the planet none of these other things will exist anyway!
I was vegetarian in my teens and early 20s (and vegan for some of that time), but then fell out of it for several years before going veg again in early 2012 and then vegan in early 2013.
Reading Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman started me on this path, and listening to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's podcast (and reading books like Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer) created a solid mental shift for me.
I have eaten a plant-based whole foods diet since 2012. I've been in SoCal since 2002 including an 8-year stint in LA, am originally from Massachusetts, and I work in content/video and am also a musician.
