More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I became a vegetarian at age four (I'm currently vegan). When I was four I learned the real source of meat, animals - I wasn't going to have it and refused to eat meat thereafter. As time has passed I've also become more aware of animal rights/testing issues, health concerns, etc., and decided to go fully vegan as an adult. I don't see a difference between all living beings, we all feel love, pain, happiness, and sadness. That being said, why should animals be mistreated? It's just not right.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

HappyCow is a great resource and I go out of my way to try random veggie places, so why not contribute? :)

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

I've been to many places and like them all. I'd like to explore Europe a little more though! Ich liebe Deutschland (I love Germany)!

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

Vegan food has come a long way over the last decade, even more so in the last two years. I do love Daiya, seitan, and other vegan stuff but I also love the basics such as cauliflower, potatoes, and avocado.

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

I'm going to be coming to Chicago and was wondering if you know of any places to get deep dish vegan pizza? I've searched quit a bit and can't find anything. Help please


Hi SynthVegan,
Happened across your profile as you seem to have reviewed everything in Chicago My wife and I are visiting Chicago in the fall for the first time to go to the Cold Waves festival at the Metro. As you are an industrial music fan, just curious if you are attending. We plan on hitting up Pick Me Up cafe, Chicago Diner etc as we'll be staying in that area. Wouldn't mind crossing paths with a fellow vegan if you happen to be around!


Hi Synth,

I'm just as bad with my late reply, ...sorry. "Stuff" going on lately - the big one, I lost my job, however, it is for the better as the place & people are quite toxic. But, it's just the deal of having to find something a.s.a.p. because I just recently, finally (2/29) moved into my own place again and truly don't wish to lose it.
Enough of me.

How are you doing? Anything new going on?

Take Care, Peace, Carol
