Why are you interested in a vegan lifestyle?

I try to live a plant based, organic lifestyle. It's all about energy and responsible energy usage. We are all connected, as with our choices, everything is linked. Our food not only gives us calories to live but shapes who we are in other arenas. I cannot support the irresponsible meat industry or the big oil companies by choice anymore. Once you know the truth it's hard to "un-see" it. I'm hopeful there are many who understand this point.

Do you have a favorite vegan restaurant in the Puget Sound area or elsewhere?

Quickie too is pretty amazing.

Are you a new vegan, long-time vegan, or vegan-curious?
