Vegan, but not militant. Read 'How Vegan?: Ingredients vs. Activism,' by Matt Ball: http://www.veganoutreach.org/howvegan.html It's a great article that describes exactly "how" I'm a vegan. :-)
Ethical vegetarian since I was kid. Became an ethical, environmental, and health-minded semi-vegan when I was a sophomore in college (over 10 years ago). Gradually went completely vegan. Next step: More raw food. :-)
I'm a big animal rights advocate. Factory farming, in particular, and sow gestation crates REALLY bother me. :-( I'm also all about meeting other veggie people; my veg friends help me keep my sanity--sort of. :-D
I helped develop the VegKC.com site. If you have comments or suggestions, please let us know--email us at info @ VegKC.com. We're working to make it database-driven, so look for some big changes in the future. :-D
Nerdy veg-head looking to enjoy KC's awesome veg-friendly restaurants and to make new friends.
