At our monthly meetings, you can receive support while transitioning to a plant-based diet to improve your health and wellness. For more about Carnivores Anonymous, visit We're so excited to hear Elysabeth's inspirational vegan story at our October meeting! Elysabeth is a veteran journalist and published author. After conducting intimate and in-depth interviews since 2010 with celebrities and influencers for PBS, NPR, WGN Radio, The Chicago Sun-Times, Huff Post, and L’Etudiant, she decided to start her own podcast/vlog to promote veganism. A long-time animal lover and advocate, Elysabeth refused to eat meat as a child and was constantly punished. Since going vegan in 2015, she has focused her main efforts on her podcast and vlog, Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano for the WGN Radio podcast series, Vegan Magazine, iTunes and YouTube. Combining her years of experience bridging the gap between celebs and the public with her interest in creating awareness and ease around being Vegan, on Awesome Vegans, Elysabeth interviews the vegan superheroes who are changing the world for animals, people and the planet…showing us just how easy, accessible and awesome veganism can be. Moby, Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch, Beyond Meat founder, Ethan Brown, author/philosopher, Peter Singer, and activist James Aspey are just some of the people she has interviewed on her podcast/vlog. Elysabeth now lives in LA with her boyfriend and cat, and is excited to speak at Carnivores Anonymous!

What we're about

The intent of this group is to keep people informed about the roaming "No Meat & Mingle" vegan potlucks and sometimes other vegan gathering in or near Los Angeles county.

The "No Meat & Mingle" vegan potlucks are a great place for open hearted people to come together in community and share conversation and great vegan food, and to learn about veganism. All people who are respectful to other people are encouraged to attend (you need not be vegan). The "No Meat & Mingle" potlucks are raw friendly which means that both cooked and raw dishes are acceptable but raw dishes are kept in a designated place. We are always looking for new hosts, so if you would like to host an event, please contact the Meetup organizer.

Please keep in mind that as a community we endeavor to be mindful of our impact on the environment and on the hosts/hostesses of our event. To that end we ask that all attendees always bring their own reusable plate/bowl, cup, eating utensils and serving utensils to each party so that there is neither paper/plastic waste nor a dish washing burden for the host or hostess. Please consider making bringing your own eating ware with you be a habit for any potluck or other event you attend where disposable items might otherwise be used.
