How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Via Meetup.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Interested in building relationships with conscious and compassionate people.

If you had to choose, which of these do you care the most about? Animal welfare, your health, the planet, or humanitarian efforts?

The healthier the person, the longer they can care about animals.

How would you label yourself when it comes to lifestyle and nutrition? (Vegan, vegetarian, plant-based foodie, vegan-curious, omnivore, locavore, etc.)

Some would say I went vegan while others might say I simply don't qualify. While I don't intentionally eat animals nor support animal consumption or entertainment, I do own a few older leather shoes and belts and may not always avoid eating honey.

If you've already "Gone Vegan", why'd you do it? If you're considering "Going Vegan", what's inspiring you consider making the decision?

Read "Mad Cowboy" on Valentine's Day in 2007 and immediately stopped eating land animals half way through. 20 months later, I stopped eating fish, eggs and dairy as well. Technically, however, I may not qualify as being vegan to some people.
