What's your favorite food or dish?

I love carby things - bread, pasta, burritos etc. I also love capers and red seedless grapes. Moroccan, Indian, Ethiopian, Lebanese, Mediterranean and Thai food are some of my favorite cuisines.

How old are you?


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

Became pescotarian in 2003, vegan in 2007. The mad cowboy by Howard Lyman got me on this veg path. I wanted a new level in my eating lifestyle and chose to go vegan. The environment, humans, the animals, and my health are all worth it.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Outdoor activities, volunteering, planning events, hearing live music, going out to eat, performing arts, film, traveling and thinking about the next place I want to go, art and learning new skills.


I love meeting people in the Portland area who like to eat and have similar interests as myself.

What deanna is saying about this Meetup Group

We're a bunch of people who like to eat and get out and do stuff. We have lived in Portland for different lengths of time and are either veterans to the vegan lifestyle or are just exploring this compassionate way of living. We are really all about fun- plain and simple!
