Please share with us what motivated you to transition to a healthier, plant-based diet and lifestyle .

I am on a life quest to be better to myself and my surroundings. I want to eat foods that are better for me. I want to stop mentally judging myself. I want to leave a smaller waist footprint. I want to be an advocate for those who can't speak.

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?

My go to comfort food is a homemade stuffed bean burrito. I am always looking for ways to transform non-vegan food into vegan. My best revision yet was french toast.

Are you vegan? Vegetarian? Veg-curious?

I would say 50 vegan/50 vegetarian. I have been vegetarian on and off for the past 15-20 years now. I finally feel comfortable with being more vegan than vegetarian. I find it easy being vegan at home, but hard for going out and at family events.

If you are not vegan just yet, how is your transition going and how can we help?

My transition is going well. I just need to be more direct and ask specific questions when I go out to eat. Found out the hard way when I recently went to Happy Dog and they gave me a real hotdog by mistake. I would love to recipe share with members that have been vegan for a long time. I like being versatile in my food choices and while I really like ethnic foods like Indian or Chinese, I do not like to eat them all the time.


I am always on the optimistic side, adore fluffy animals and dream in color.
