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

I've been a vegan for just about 3 years after reading the book "Skinny Bitch". It changed my total outlook on animals and food and soon I was obsessed. I've been certified in Plant Based Nutrition through eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation. I'm currently enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and soon will a certified Health Coach.

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

Mostly I'm just interested in meeting new people with common ideas and theories around food and lifestyle.

What is your favorite local veg-friendly restaurant?

Basil Leaf and Bamboo Bistro on St Pete Beach. They're both really close to home and very inexpensive. They're great about making sure they keep the fish sauce away from my noodles and always give me extra veggies!

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

Nutrition, Yoga and Children
