What diet/lifestyle do you follow? For how long? Why?

I became vegetarian when I was 14. For the past two years, I've been vegan; I became vegan when I started working for an organization, PCRM, that has a vegan office policy. It's been the best change I could have made! For so many years, my being a vegetarian was strictly a health issue, but in recent years I've become more invested in the ethics of a vegan diet.

What types of activities are you interested in for this meetup?

I love cooking and baking, so would be interested in meeting for dinner or swapping recipes. I also like eating out and exploring new restaurants, so that would be nice, too.

What is your favorite local veg-friendly restaurant?

I love Vida De Cafe, and their Cayenne Spinach horchata is my favorite thing on the menu. I like the vegan items at Taco Bus, and love Mezze 119. Leafy Greens is another favorite.

Besides veg*nism, what three issues are you most passionate about?

Inequality - in all forms. Empowerment of women and children. Cruelty to animals


Hi, I've just moved back to St. Pete from DC and would love to attend some of your meet-ups. I've been vegan for about two years now and would love to connect to a larger group of people who are concerned about ethics and health.
