Are you vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, ...?

I recently became vegan (November 2012), mainly for health reasons. I have been vegetarian since 2006 for moral reasons.

How/why/when did you become veg*n?

As a kid, I never felt good about eating meat. I have always struggled with a deep sense of guilt in many areas of my life, and becoming vegetarian/vegan was one way I could control the guilt I felt for eating meat as a kid.

What interests or issues are important to you?

Animal rights, human rights, environmental issues, education and awareness...

How did you find out about VegKC and/or this meetup group?

I ran into somebody who told me her brother was vegan, and was apart of a meetup group in Kansas City, so I googled it, and voila!


I became vegetarian in 2006 for moral reasons, and recently decided to go vegan, mainly for health reasons.
