Do you consider yourself a vegan or a vegetarian? How long have you been one?

Vegetarian since 1984. I actually first started in 1974 but I was just a kid and it took a while for me to make the complete change.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

In 1974, I heard about McDonalds being fined for using cancerous meat in their burgers. That made me start thinking about what I was eating. In[masked] I just felt it was right and couldn't eat animals.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

Lately, I have been eating veggie dogs with rice and tapatio sauce. I love red bell peppers stuffed with rice and beans. I am going to get hungry answering this question...

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

It is difficult to say without knowing how active this group is. I don't know if you are a social group that just dines together and talks about things or if you actually stage protests. There is no shortage of animals that need help. The more people working on it, the more help they get.

Are there any great vegan resources/websites that we may have missed on our other page?

I didn't see a list of resources but am happy to contribute once I read through it.


I have been a vegetarian since 1984 and an animal rescuer and rights activist since before the term Animal Rights Activist was actually used. I would like to join this group because it is wonderful to know and work with others with that share my ki
