More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I originally stopped eating meat because I went off the taste. Now it's more of a moral thing. The more I've learnt about the farming industry and the way food (and indeed pet) animals are treated around the world, the more it makes me stick to my guns. I don't think I could ever go vegan, but I am not a dairy junkie and I get eggs from my parents' free-range chickens. I try not to be judgemental with my friends and family who prefer to eat meat but I think the world would be better off food and resource-wise if we all went vegetarian.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

I came across a leaflet in one of my favourite vego restaurants that mentioned a few websites including this one. I had a look, and liked what I saw.

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

Spent a year in Europe in the 90s and loved it all. Poland and Portugal were my favourites but probably as much as for the people I met and experiences I had there as anything. Almost all the places I visited were full of lovely people and gorgeous scenery. I'd love to go back some day, especially to Poland, France, England and the rest of the UK that I never got to see. I'd also like to get to the more eastern parts of Europe and places in the middle east. I think New Zealand is beautiful but have only been to the North Island so far. I'd like to spend more than 10 days (as I did on my way to Europe) in different parts of America and would love to get to Canada. There are so many wonderful places in the world to see that even if I spent my life travelling I'd never get to them all! I love Austalia too and would like to travel here. I've never been to the Northern Territory and haven't seen much of many of the other states. I have friends and family in most of them.

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

Nutloaf, interesting salads, baked vegies, sun-dried tomatoes, rockmelons, strawberries, pasta and vegie bake, pizza, cashews, brazil nuts, stir-fry, hommous, laksa, mock-meat ginger chicken.

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

My taste in books is like my taste in music - I don't necessarily have a favourite artist but lots of different likes. I do however enjoy the writings of Terry Pratchett, especially the Discworld series. I usually like romantic comedy and drama movies and a bit of sci-fi, hate slapstick and toilet humour. My favourite TV shows are too many to mention. Unfortunately I'm a bit of a TV junkie. I love Joss Whedon, I think he's brilliant and have enjoyed all his shows immensely.
