I’m Eric and I’m Vegan. I suppose every Vegan has his or her “story.” I became Vegan because I wanted to improve my health. I was overweight, had very high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I ate the “typical” American diet – hamburgers, pizza, fried foods, fast foods, soda, sweets, dairy, etc… I’m 45 years old and have a wife and 4 children (ages 20, 18, 5 & 3). I want to be around long enough to raise my children.
I started watching documentaries on food and health. I ultimately decided that becoming Vegan would help me to lose weight and get healthy. I started with a 3 day juice fast and then went 100% Vegan!
Within 6 weeks I had lost 35 pounds, lowered my blood pressure and reduced my cholesterol to near-olympic athlete levels! I haven’t looked back since.
One day my family and I were vacationing in Big Sur, CA and I was trying to find a place to eat. We asked around and couldn’t find any restaurants that offered Vegan choices! I thought “There needs to be an online resource – a directory of Vegan restaurants!” On that day, Vegan Restaurant Finder was born (at least in my head). I would create a directory of Vegan spots to eat! But wait, I wanted more cowbell! The site would need to provide more than just the name and address of a place to vegan-eat, I wanted to see pictures, menues, hours, pricing and most importantly – reviews from other Vegans!
