How long have you been veg?

I became vegetarian in 1994 after a month in the south pacific. I was so tired of the meat and starch diet there, I couldn't wait to get home to eat fresh fruits and veggies. Became vegan in 96, to better balance my diet Cheese is fat, not protein!

What's your favorite veggie food?

Everything but mushrooms! I love cooking and hope we can start some progressive dinner parties! We used to do these back when I was Omni, but I don't even know one single vegetarian in Port Charlotte, so it wouldn't be much fun.

What do you want to get out of this group?

I want to ENJOY going out and to meet new people. I am tired of people who think that, being a vegan, I have lost the ability to read a menu and make a choice. When ordering, they interrupt to tell the waiter what I do and do not eat. How RUDE.


Finishing my 2nd BS in IS, hope to get a business designing Web sites up and running by the end of 2008


Cleveland, OH, then Columbus OH, then San Diego : ), then Kona, HI : ), then Waikiki, now Port Charlotte. : ( Woe is me. Became a vegan while living in San Diego. It was so easy there and in Hawaii, and so hard here in SW FL.


I want to meet people that are of a like mind, that I can enjoy spending time with. I am so over having to defend my lifestyle to ignorant people.

What Nanette is saying about this Meetup Group

Love them. So nice to be among like minded people
