Do you have any Companion Animals?

One cat and two gerbils.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I foster for the GAP Rescue. This is a group at Trinity High School who focus is saving animals at the Euless city shelter. I'm a CPA. I feel animals are such a gift and the abuse that goes on towards them disturbs me very much. Our society and our environment is getting sicker and if we would stop eating animals, both these things could be improved dramatically. We are getting sicker and the answer is so clearly what we are putting in our (and our childrens') bodies. Wake up!!

How do you define your lifestyle? (eg. vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, etc.)

Vegan although I do eat eggs from a friend who has a small farm. Her chickens are happy, healthy, and eating what chickens should eat (not GMO cheap corn!)

What interests you in a vegan diet?

Compassion and it just makes sense. There are too many wonderful vegan options out there to eat to justify hurting animals to put food on the table. I've recently discovered a website with lots of wonderful organic high protein grains and am loving it!!

Introduction

I have been a vegetarian since 1990 after reading about downed cows. I was disgusted and stopped eating all meat immediately. I've just learned about the atrosities of the dairy industry and have been vegan since Nov 2013.
