I used to think that animal slaughter was done quickly and humanely until I saw the Humane Society's undercover footage of the abuse of dairy cows a few years ago. At that point I decided I did not want to be part of that market. I phased out red meat, then seafood, then dairy. I have recently committed to completely avoid dairy, even in restaurants and the homes of others. My cholesterol dropped 35 points just going vegetarian. Now that I am completely off dairy, I am losing more weight. I would be willing to host a meetup gathering. I would be interested in helping to plan the Veggie Fest.
My name is Michele Johnson and I live in Slidell. Aside from 1 co-worker, I am the only vegan or vegetarian amongst my immediate family and friends. So I am looking forward to meeting others of a like mind, trying out veg friendly eateries & recipes.
I like it.
