Please share with us what motivated you to transition to a healthier, plant-based diet and lifestyle .

I took an ethics course my first year of college in 1999. I reviewed some of the arguments a few months after the course ended and went vegetarian soon after. I went strict vegetarian in 2012 or 'vegan' as people say these days... though originally that term referred to a philosophy of living not just a dietary pattern.

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?

Beans! Fruit: It depends on the condition of the fruit. Just right nectarines I really enjoy, but not so much when they spoil. Red grapes almost always taste good, green grapes when just right, but otherwise I prefer the red ones.

Are you vegan? Vegetarian? Veg-curious?


If you are not vegan just yet, how is your transition going and how can we help?

No answer yet
