I was a vegetarian for 12 years and recently decided to become vegan. My decision was based on a few things: improving my health, helping out the environment and most importantly - my love of animals. I simply do not want to contribute to their suffering any longer. I'm pleasantly surprised at how much I'm enjoying vegan food. I'm doing alot more cooking and loving every minute of it. I absolutely love feeling healthy and having lots of energy! I'm a big believer in 'you are what you eat' and as a result I have a pretty clean diet and avoid processed foods most of the time. In my vegetarian days I did a lot of baking so now the challenge is finding new, yummy vegan recipes for baked goods... not much luck so far...! But will keep trying... :)

I'm a positive, easy-going, friendly, compassionate and open-minded individual seeking like-minded people. I love animals and have three pets (2 cats and a dog). I like to check out live music, have drinks on a patio in the summer, or just get outside and enjoy nature, and be active. I ride my bike quite a bit, more so in the summer of course and as for walking - my little pooch and I get out every day regardless of what the weather is doing! :)
