What's your favorite food or dish?

Oh so many! Right now I'm really craving a portobello gyro from Paradox and they are now closed for the evening...bummer.

How old are you?

32 and hardly an adult.

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

I am not vegan and do not currently have any plans to be strictly vegan. I prefer restricting my consumption of non-vegan products to sources that are managed in a way that I find acceptable. Allowing animals to have enjoyable lives in an environmentally-friendly manner costs more and requires conscientious consumers to moderate animal product consumption. With few exceptions, I enjoy all food. I love fresh, organic, locally produced fruits and vegetables in wild variety. I have found that the most creative preparers of food to be vegans. I am particularly interested in the ways in which vegans supply themselves with adequate proteins while maintaining a vegan diet. I want to discover more alterernatives to animal products and want to share them in a way that doesn't scare off my most carnivorous friends. To learn and to share, that's why I'm here.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Pretty much up for anything. I'm not great at anything but I've done a lot of things at least once.


I attempt to be cognizant of the economic behaviors in which I participate. I find factory farming deplorable, never hunt nor fish, and routinely rescue small animals from certain death. So please don't hate me because I'm not exactly vegan.
