More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

Many factors make the choice obvious. You can visit HappyCow's "Why Vegetarian-Animal Rights" page to see some of the things which are important to me. https://www.happycow.net/vegtopics/why-vegetarian

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

just so you could read this :-)

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

I love to travel and have ventured to over 65 countries. I mostly like to go to warmer climates and places that can accommodate a vegan. Thailand is definitely at the top of my list.

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

Avocados, Guacamole, Fresh Juices & Smoothies, tropical fruits like mangosteen & passion fruit, Thai Mangoes, Strawberry papayas.... yummm!

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

I wish I had time for Books, movies, magazines, etc... always too busy!
