What's your favorite food or dish?

There are so many. I like trying different ethnic foods. I make a zucchini & corn enchilada that is pretty tasty. But I like eating from a varity of ethnic cuisines.

How old are you?


How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I have been vegetarian since 1979. I became vegetarian because of my concern for animal welfare & the cruelty of farming practices, especially industrial farming. I considered vegan but in the 1970's, it required doing all sorts of matching amino acids & was too complicated for my working life. I am now retired, they now say the complicated matching isn't required & I need to work in improving my not very good health.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Right now, I am doing stuff around the house I did not have time to do when I worked. I put in raised beds this year & am getting back into gardening. I enjoy trying new recipes. And i like going to the movies & eating out. I participate in Big Brother/ Big Sister. As time permits, I will expand my volunteer work. I anticipate that will probably include something with one of the animal shelters.


I am working on moving from being vegetarian (since 1979) to a low fat vegan. I hope to meet others who share my preferred life style
