Are you currently a vegetarian/vegan?

After swearing off meat as an "at-home-vegan" and "dining-out-vegetarian" for a few months, I completed the transition to veganism in 2012. It's been an eye-opening experience--I had no idea that I liked vegetables so much!

How long have you been interested in the veg lifestyle?

I've been interested in vegetarianism since college, but I waited until I was finished with all of my schooling to start the process in a focused, healthy way that I could sustain long-term. I have been vegan since April 2012.

What types of activities are you interested in doing with this group?

Potlucks and other food-related activities, educational activities (like movie nights about vegetarianism or animals), and getting introduced to some kind of animal rescue activity. But non-vegan activities like bowling would be fun, too!


Living in the 'burbs and would love to meet some more vegans in the area.

What Fran is saying about this Meetup Group

A warm group of people who are welcoming, fun, and interesting to talk to.
