Do you have any Companion Animals?

No? I don't have any pets, if that's what you mean.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I am a green smoothies junkie. Health nut. And I want to start something here in Dallas. I'm starting really slow. Hopefully, I meet someone through this network who shares my ambition.

How do you define your lifestyle? (eg. vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, etc.)

I am an omnivore. I do believe that organ meats (heart, lungs, brain, etc) have INCREDIBLE health benefits. But I am trying to transition to be 70% raw vegan. It's going to take more research for me to 100% give up my organ meats... I'm learning. And I'm not opposed to eating non-factory farmed animals. I'm learning.

What interests you in a vegan diet?

Its not so much the vegan DIET that interests me... but vegans seem to be the only people I can talk to about green smoothies and juices! They're the only ones who don't go "Huh??" when I talk about being raw. And they are more open to using HEALTHIER ingredients for everyday dishes (you don't need eggs and shitty milk to make bomb dot com cookies). Its the... open mindedness of the community. And the adventurous personality of the community that interests me. I need to make some connections. Even if I were to go to a paleo community... they eat meat and they are supposed to be open minded, but a lot of them are not. A lot of them think paleo is about eating brown rice and steak and its not. Vegan community "gets it" more.

Introduction

I want to open a green juice bar, so I need to network.
