Vegetarian or a vegan? Why?

I grew up vegetarian (my grandparents raised beef cows and as a child I became fully aware where my hamburgers were coming from!). Then after learning about the health benefits to veganism a year and a half ago, I gave myself a week to try it and have never gone back!

If yes, how long have you been a vegetarian/vegan?

2.5 years vegan, most of my life vegetarian

What would you like to do with/get from this group?

I'd like to meet other people who share my lifestyle in terms of food consciousness, knowledge of local veg*n-friendly places to go, and have lots of awesome potlucks with other veg*ns of all stripes!


I am a 26-year old PhD student who's been vegetarian most of my life and vegan for about 2.5 years.
