How long have you been veg?

I became a vegetarian 30 years ago... in 1982.. when my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer. The doctors told her she was eating to much meat... caused cancerous polyps to develop... they removed a lot of her colon... it eventually killed her. I stopped eating meat then for health reasons... then I saw the horrible videos of what happens to the animals... and that did it! I quit eating all flesh.. fish was the last thing I gave up. I feel it is important to educate others about how bad meat is for you... the antibiotics and steroids and junk that are fed to animals.. .and the suffering involved. I have become a huge animal rights activist. The older I get... the more outspoken I become. I want to leave this earth knowing I made a difference! It is refreshing to be around people like me... it gets old being around so many people that eat meat and put me down for my decision and my beliefs! For me now... it is more about the animals then health! I just love, love animals!

What's your favorite veggie food?

I can't pick one... no way! Raw Kale Salad... love pastas and yummy mexican food!

What do you want to get out of this group?

I do NOT eat any flesh at all, and have been working on being completely vegan. I want to learn about how to do that, recipes, be around people that think like me who want to make a difference & love animals.


I am a professional photographer. I had an awesome studio in Colorado for years, but sold it to move here. After taking a break... I am ready to get back into it and specialize in fun, different photography with an emphasis on pets!


I am from Pueblo, Colorado... been here in Sarasota for ten years! I miss the Colorado mountains so much... but I love the beach!


I am thrilled to be a part of this group & am looking forward to learning, teaching & becoming more aware of how to be healthy without eating any animal products. I am an animal rights advocate, rescue any chance I can get. Animals are my passion!

What Susie C. is saying about this Meetup Group

I loved it... it was my first meeting... I look forward to more. I think we can really expand. Thank you for putting it together.... so nice to be around others who think like me. I am so over so called friends bashing me for my animal rights views and the way I eat. Nice to know others feel the same way. I want to surround myself with people who are like me...
