How long have you been veg?

Since December 18th 2012 when I developed the Alpha Gal allergy (deathly allergic to red meat, meat by products and dairy) as a direct result of being bitten by a Lone Star tick. It's saliva contains an enzyme which has triggered this allergic response by my body. There are only about 1,600 documented "alpha gal sufferers" worldwide to date.

What's your favorite veggie food?

home made vegetable soup and home made gluten free bread.

What do you want to get out of this group?

To socialize with people who think more like I do. I want to learn things, how I can help others, animals, the world and in the process, help myself.






Have recently moved back to Sarasota and would like to meet others with similar interests.
