How long have you been (or trying to be?) vegan, vegetarian, etc.?

Recently it's been a process of about 10 years now but it's been a lifetime of growth. I grew up around vegetarianism, my grandparents were vegetarian, not vegan. So I grew up with a mixture of the 2 and my household has never been one where we ate a lot of meat. I grew up in a faith that promotes vegetarianism and ulitmately a complete plant based diet, but they emphasized the health benefits. The morals around it, if discussed, were more about our responsibility to God and the treatment of our bodies and not so much about our moral responsibility to the beings whose lives we take to satisfy appetite. I moved to a plant based diet about 25 years ago, even had a vegand pregnancy and birth... The clincher for me came about 5 years ago with watching an undercover PETA video; I was in tears, disgusted and heartbroken. From that moment it's just been constant change a growth; myself, my husband and 2 kids have all adopted a vegan lifestyle and it's been nothing but a blessing..

Why are you joining Veg Meetup Vancouver?

To eat good vegan food and meet people of with similiar values and ethics.

Which restaurants are your favourite?

Overall, Plum Bistro in Seattle, but there's this amazing little diner in Honolulu - Downbeat Diner - that, while not a vegetarian restaurant, offers everything on their menu 'veganized'. It is just amazing yummy diner food. In Vancouver, I like too many places for different reasons to name just one...but Rhizome on E Broadway is definitely a big favorite.
