My Veggie Friend - Muncie Fine Portraits

Hello! I'm Sarah, your new Veggie Friend!

In 2017, I'm celebrating 22 years meat free and 40 awesome trips around the sun!

About Me:
I first began my crusade for our friends in fur, feathers and scales back when I was just 13! It was then, that for a current events report at school, I stumbled upon the subject of vivisection and my heart felt like it was breaking. How could anyone hurt animals like that when they didn't have to? So right away, I began talking to my Mom and Dad and asking for them to look for products by cruelty free companies. Those were the days before the World Wide Web made it so easy, so I had to do a lot of phone calling to the companies to ask questions.


In 1995, right after I graduated high school, my friend gave me some information on how animals were raised for food. Once again, my heart was broken. And I decided that I would never eat meat again. A lot of people think I must have been born a vegetarian, but the truth is, I loved meat! The last meat I ate was a huge bag of home made beef jerky and I never touched the stuff again. While I loved meat, I didn't love participating in that kind of animal cruelty. So that was that!

Over the years, I began giving up more and more animal products like leather, wool, feathers, milk and dairy, and eggs until today, where I live happily and comfortably without them. Back when I first gave up meat, I had to drive an hour away to buy veggie burgers and they were $9 for a box of four! The word "vegetarian" was something that very few people were familiar with. I got a lot of strange looks. People laughed. And surprisingly, people often got angry with me when I told them I didn't eat meat! What an odd thing to upset people..

Today, being a vegetarian is super easy. A lot of people are doing it for health reasons. A lot of people are becoming more and more familiar with the suffering that eating meat and animal products causes the animals. So many people are giving up that nasty stuff for so many reasons.


You know, now you can pick up a box of veggie burgers just about anywhere for less than $3!

There are so many options nowadays! But if you are new to finding them, you probably have a lot of questions. That's why I decided to offer myself as your shopping buddy!


That's right! If you are at the grocery store and need to know what to substitute for the animal products in your favorite dish, have a question about an ingredient.. if you have an ethical animal rights question you just don't know the answer to.. or even if you are at a friend's house, engaged in debate with no comeback, text me!


I will respond by text message. Text anytime, any day of the week, even holidays and I will get back with you as soon as I'm able to.
