What diet/lifestyle do you follow? For how long? Why?

I follow what I call a "Whole Foods" vegan lifestyle which I define as only eating fruits, vegetables, beans (1st dried, not canned), grains, and a little bit of nuts, dried fruit, and seeds. I also try to incorporate a lot of raw into my eating but I'm definitely not 100% raw. I've been vegan for a little over a year and vegetarian for 3 years before that...so cruelty free for a little over 4 years! My reasoning mostly goes back to me caring for the animals, my health, and our earth. I really disagree with factory farming so thats the major reason.

What types of activities are you interested in for this meetup?

Any that you guys plan! I'm pretty open to everything!

What is your favorite local veg-friendly restaurant?

I really like Conciousness Blossoms in Palm Harbor but I don't really have much to compare to that because I really like to home make EVERYTHING so I don't eat out much at all.

Besides veg*nism, what three issues are you most passionate about?

Helping the homeless and hungry is one of the biggest issues that I'm passionate about. I don't really have a third that I would say I'm extremely passionate about.

Introduction

I've been vegan for a little over a year and vegetarian for 3 years before that! I'm just looking to meet some like-minded people. :)
