How did you hear about the Boulder & Beyond Vegan Meetup?

It showed up on Meetup's main page

What made you decide to go vegan/ explore a more compassionate lifestyle?

I was never really *into* eating meat, and would frequently be grossed out by inconsistencies in meat textures. Then we watched Earthlings and it was over!

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in?

I love the various activities that are posted as part of your group description. It's perfect!

On your veg journey, do you have specific challenges that you'd like help with?

Finding meat "alternatives" that are gluten free! Sometimes we like to buy veggie burgers or veggie sausages that we can add to other dishes, but most of the time one of their first ingredients is "wheat gluten". I am sure there must be some brands out there that don't use wheat gluten in their veggie sausages, right?


Hi! My husband and I just moved to Boulder and are looking for meetup groups with similar interests. We are *almost* 100% vegan and are looking for a supportive environment for inspiration and meeting new friends :)
