What we're about

About Us:

“So Easy~So Good” is a vegan/wannabe group and as such all our events are ALWAYS VEGAN/Plant-Based, meaning that we will NOT use any animal products such as meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, fish and other animal derived ingredients at potlucks or any other outings

At potlucks and at any other events, such as eating out at a restaurant, we ask you kindly not to bring or order any animal derived foods!

If in doubt about what that means, please ask us. We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have!

The goal of this group is to support people who want to change to a healthy plant-based diet in any way we can. Like any change it will take a few weeks to get used to eating this way, but then it is very easy.

So Easy-So Good is an inclusive group of all people on their journey to living a more mindful life. We do not exclude anyone no matter which eating level they are at as long as they are doing the best they can at this particular time in their lives. Remember, few of us were brought up vegan. It took me 57 years before I became vegetarian and another year after that to go vegan. Thanks Kathy Haynes President and Founder of So Easy-So Good So Easy to be Vegetarian/Vegan So Good for Health, Environment and All Living Beings.

At restaurant outings:

You will learn with the help and support from us and our members how to order plant food at any restaurant. Please ask if you are unsure about what to order! All of us are not born vegan and we understand that there is confusion sometimes about the ingredients in the food.

We hope you enjoy our meetups as much as we do and you make new friends!
