Are you vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, ...?

Vegetarian for nearly 4 years, interested in becoming vegan one day, but I don't do well with soy and I require quite a bit of protein :(

How/why/when did you become veg*n?

I've explored vegetarianism several times. As a child and college student I regularly tested my will power by giving up certain foods including ice cream and chocolate, in college I decided to go without meat and it lasted 4 months. Maybe a year and a half to two years later I studied abroad in India for 5 months and decided I shouldn't eat sketchy meat over there. However, one of my first meals back in the states was chicken :( . Two years later I was eating some pasta with chicken in it and was randomly and overwhelmingly repulsed by it. It was two days later I became a vegetarian and haven't looked back (except a few times in my dreams ha-ha). I realized if I couldn't kill an animal myself, I shouldn't eat it. It's for environmental reasons, humanitarian, spiritual, and many more.

What interests or issues are important to you?

Many (will come back)

How did you find out about VegKC and/or this meetup group?

A friend :)
