Converted to vegetarianism on January 1st, so I'm in on my 5th month of this incredible journey! Have been browsing this site the last couple of days, and decided to muster up the courage to join in and introduce myself. c: My names Keenan, and I've transitioned to VEG to make myself a better bassist! No, I'm kidding.. but I like to say that to people sometimes. cx I've taken influence though from some of my favorite musicians who just so happen to be Vegan. Someday I plan on furthering my transition to a Vegan lifestyle, but I figured i'd work my way into it! Since I've began this new, and exciting lifestyle I've been asked many questions pertaining to my choices, and feel like I've learned a lot about myself thus far. My favorite meals include Falafel, vegetable lowmein with rice noodles, black bean burritos loaded with alfalfa sprouts, and a good ol fashion raw salad with spinach, sprouts, celery, broccoli, tomatoe, carrots, and topped with a medley of nuts and almonds! I've recently started practicing yoga, and meditation! Which is amazzingg. The biggest change I've noticed over all is that I've become more compassionate, and loving! Soo that's just a little bit about me.. hope everyone's having a wondeful evening! grin.gif

Welcome! My boyfriend is a musician too. It's a bummer because every time his band plays at clubs and such, there's no vegan food (we're both vegan). But, if more musicians go veg who knows what'll happen. Glad you joined up :)

It's very interesting though, I've noticed this whole new psychoactice aspect to the way I play my instrument. It's like I'm more in tune with what's going on, and it becomes more of a feeling opposed to just an action. But yeah, eating out has definitely been a challenge! I don't mind it though, because I like to take the time to prepare my food with LOVE! I swear it makes it taste better haha bet who knows, maybe its all just in my head!

I'm always suggesting others to "GO VEG!" Especially my fellow musicians. Following in the footsteps of Liam Wilson, and labelling myself a "Wacktovist." :P

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.
