Hi Vegans, I'm excited to be joining this forum. I've been a vegan for almost 8 years now. When I came back home to Portland after freshman year, one of my friends had become vegan and suggested I do some research. I became vegan overnight after reading up on everything. Eating plant-based foods has become a way of living peacefully and kindly with others and myself. I can't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't become vegan. Well, I'd imagine that I wouldn't be as concerned about compassion, spirituality, environment, or other things that make me happy to wake up every morning. 


While working as a book editor, I co-founded a vegan website called Peaceful Dumpling ( to spread a positive and peaceful message of veganism. I look forward to meeting a lot of fellow vegans here! Thanks for reading :)

Thanks Bean Spud! I like your answer for "what you do for a living" :)

Hi Juhea!  Welcome to the forums!


Wow, you've been a vegan for a long time, that's awesome!


You're probably going to be one of the longest term vegans here- most members are a couple years old, in vegan years :)

You might have more to teach than to learn at this point, but I hope we can still offer you a few odd tips here and there, and some new recipe ideas.


Your site looks great, I'm glad you've joined us!

Hi there and welcome to VB 


I just love the name Peaceful Dumpling :D (that stuffed cabbage looks delicious!)

Wow, I'm very proud to be considered an "experienced" vegan at this point! I'm always learning, though--and growing! 


And I love to also discuss veganism on the more philosophical level, with other vegans and omnis. Revisiting the ethics of veganism makes it still exciting and meaningful, even after the diet part has long taken care of itself. :)
