How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Thru a Google search I found SDV. Helping others learn about the results of their eating is challenging bc how can one be the teacher until the student appears & "asks the key questions?" Even my closest friends don't "ask" & I'm talking about the last 19 yrs...gotta respect their boundaries.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

My goal is to meet like-minded people...they're golden, not to mention in the minority.

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

Initially it was about my it's a lifestyle...therefore, there's no will power needed to discipline myself to eat as a vegan...I'm humbled & full of gratitude.

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

Went vegetarian in 1994 & vegan in 1997.

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?

when one looks @ the acid-alkaline balance, for just one example, how could the traditional western diet ever create brimming health? It was a no-brainer for me.


Born in MI, SDSU grad, beach runs, tennis, hiking, baseball, football, music-dancing-concer­ts, travel, mountains-beach; Investor Advocate; healthy food, I have lotsa heart & am looking for the same; always up for a good time, Let’s have some fun..Jim
