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

Strictly speaking I'm vegetarian. But about 95% of my food is plant-based, and as I wear out shoes, purses, etc. I'm trying to replace them with those from non-animal sources.

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

I always say a little bit of everything, and it's really true. I never liked meat. The idea of eating animals freaked me out, and seemed to go against my Catholic right-to-life upbringing. I felt healthier not eating it. Started at 13 cold turkey

What interests or issues are important to you?

I really come at the activism side from the perspective of the food. I feel like if more people knew all the great choices out there (and if more restaurants offered more of them), more people would be veggie! It's all about expanding choices.

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

I found out about VegKC while doing some googling as I was preparing to move to KC. It was really important to me that I found out where the good restaurants/grocery stores were! Finding the Meetup group was an added bonus.


Vegetarian since age 13, Kansas Citian since 2007!
