More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

It's about acting on what I believe in, not just merely saying that I care about animals. I'm a new vegan, who rapidly moved from mostly vegetarian, to ovo-lacto vegetarian, to dairy-free vegetarian, to vegan, after much personal debate on the concept of compassion, prompted mostly by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's podcast, Vegetarian Food for Thought. I felt there was something missing, some hollow spot in my life before, as though I were lying to myself through my previous actions. I feel that to know the deepest compassion, we must learn to let this emotion into our everyday lives and actions, such as our rituals of eating, or the types of clothing we wear. From there, it steeps outwards, into our bigger decisions in life, and into the people surrounding us. While I've also been feeling lots of health benefits, I think the main reason to be vegan is that veganism just feels good on the heart.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

I've found a lot of support through the internet, much to my suprize. Especially since I seem to run into very few vegetarians where I live, and even fewer vegans (actually, I don't think I know any).

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

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

almond butter, avocados, dates, fresh herbs of all sorts (except cilantro), bananas (love!), miso paste, arugula, dark chocolate, home-made smoothies, chick peas, wild berries, tofu fresh rolls

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