More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I love animals! How we treat them is really horrific and we have alternatives. I refuse to support animal cruelty, and that was my initial reason for going from vegetarian to vegan. My reason for going vegetarian as a child was simply that I loved animals and didn't want to eat them. I also am appalled at the statistics from a resource perspective about the harm to environment. Health benefits are clear and I believe that one day it will be considered as bad as smoking for your health. The good karma and kindness I feel in my heart are added benefits. :)

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

I originally joined because I desperately wanted some vegan food while travelling (back in 2007). Now I still love discovering new places, foods and drooling over photos. Plus, I enjoy sharing the best of Melbourne for vegans.

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:

I love Melbourne! Next to that would be Vancouver. Lots of places I would love to visit, especially ones that have an alternative bent and plenty of vegan options. Also on my list is the Phuket J festival of all things vegetarian - Thailand I will make it one day!

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

It does depend on my mood. But I love dosa- indian pancakes with potato filling! Also, specific Melbourne made foods I love are Vegie sesame prawn toast ( from Enlightened Cuisine in Melbourne), the Laksa (from Vegie hut), pho (from Yong's Green or Fina's 2), Zebra dream coconut ice-cream.. hmmm.

Here are some books, movies, magazines, and my favorites that I would recommend to other HappyCow members:

I love 'the kind diet' and vegan cookbooks - such as 'skinny bitch in the kitch', 'La Dolce Vegan!: Vegan Livin' Made Easy'. I like the recently launched 'Lush' magazine, which is produced in Sydney.
