How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

For my friends and family, I found that cooking a vegan meal is the best way to open the conversation to veganism. I think its true that a way to a person's heart is through their stomach!

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

I would love to meet more vegans in the San Diego area.

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

If I ever feel like it would just be "easier" to eat dairy (I've never had the urge for meat), I look at my two dogs and immediately remember why I am vegan.

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

I went from one side of the spectrum (SAD) to the other (vegan) overnight in October of 2011.

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?

My number one reason for going vegan was animal rights. I also believe that a vegan lifestyle is the healthiest diet for our planet.


I think the best way to get to know me is to know what I love: my vegan husband, my two rescues, organic red wine, juicing, yoga, vegan yummies, everything organic, Pittsburgh sports, Hawaii, traveling, and learning every day about something new.
