Do you have any Companion Animals?

I just adopted a kitten! I named her Jelly. She's crazy and fun. Would love a dog once I am more settled in here.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I just moved to Dallas from Northern CA in July. I came out here with work last year and liked it so I decided to move here! :) I'm excited to get to know the area better, and meet some awesome people.

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

I went vegan in March of 2012 after watching "Forks Over Knives." I've read any and everything that's crossed my path in relation to nutrition since, and I feel like I've made the best choice for myself and my pursuit of a long, happy and healthy life. :)

What interests you in a vegan diet?

I love how natural and easy it feels to be vegan. It sounds totally cornball to say it, but I find something amazing about feeding my body simple, clean foods that nourish and protect without harmful side effects. I feel like I'm fueling myself the way nature intended. Plus, I've always been grossed out by various facets of an "omni diet," even when I partook in one. Jiggly bits of meat and veins and things snapping out when you take a bite...never been a big fan. (blech!) Veggies never try to bite you back ;)
