How did you learn about Vegan Long Island—did you find us through Via Facebook? Through a friend? Did you hear about us at an event? Maybe you spotted a VEGAN button on a friendly stranger, and you struck up a conversation!

I was at the Whole Foods Market in Lake Grove and spotted people wearing name takes that said Vegan Long Island a few years back.

What's your present diet like? (We appreciate that today you may be just vegan-curious, and we're happy to have you sign up—because every vegan meal is a positive step! We ask our members to be open to new things & treat one another with kindness.)

It is a whole food plant based diet high in both micro nutrients and nutrients. It's very high in fiber and just the right amount of protein. It is based on Joel Fuhrman's dietary lifestyle from the book "Eat to Live. He has labeled it the "Nutritarian Diet".

If you need compassionate support, VLI can help. Are you having trouble going or staying vegan for any reason? If so, reply "yes" here, or send us a private message—a member of the leadership team will contact you. If you're doing fine, that's great!

I'm doing great!

About participation: it's totally fine to be relatively inactive. But if you want to get involved right away, great! Do you know of a good venue for a potluck? Got time or money for projects? If so, let us know. If not, you can reply "Not right now."

I will think on this.

We love hearing your top reason(s) for choosing vegan food/vegan living:

Health, compassion, healing the earth, it's the right thing to do. It's good for the body and soul.


I am 56 years old. I have been a nutritarian for about 2.5 years. I also eat 98 percent vegan. Lost over 30 pounds eating right. Enjoy music, art, history, philosophy and comedy.

What Roy E. is saying about this Meetup Group

I am glad more and more people are beginning to get vegan on Long Island. I hope more and more will decide to incorporate healthy choices in their decisions.
