hello all! my name is mariclare, i'm 21, i just moved to oakland, ca and i am making juuust enough money to support myself. i am currently a vegetarian, and i've been one this time around for about 2 months. i had been one for 2 years before, then went back to eating chicken. THIS time around, however, i think i am migrating towards vegan-world.
seeing that i'm on a tight budget, i figure buying groceries is less expensive than going out to eat for every meal. i am very eager to learn how to cook, and to cook vegan, on a tight budget. which is basically why i joined this community. :)
