Hey, I am "Alex"andra. Vegan for nearly 6 years and vegetarian before that for like 5 years. I was hoping to find a vegan trainer in Northern VA, which is why I joined. Can anyone help me out there? :)
Thank you.

Hey there Alex. I'm from NOVA originally myself (living in Florida now). Whereabouts are you from? I grew up in Fairfax/Chantilly.

I am actually looking for a raw vegan spot in DC b/c I plan to take the day off and head to DC for the day tomorrow. I will check vegdc.com. Thanks. I am actually from here. I guess Reston technically. Live in Herndon and work in Arlington. I am not a raw vegan but I am trying to get my eating out somewhat healthy tomorrow. :) No Sticky Fingers.

I think I am going to have to steal your quote too. I love it.

Please feel free to use the quote. Amazing band with great lyrics.

I hear ya on Sticky Fingers. I used them for my wedding cake several years ago.

I don't know raw places in DC but I did recently see one/some listed in VegDC and/or HappyCow. Java Green (19th & K) has raw options.

I posted the quote and then the full lyrics of the song as my status update. Now I am saving it all to my Notes section. I love the lyrics. I am heading to Jinx in DC to get a tattoo but figured might as well make a day of it and get some good vegan eats. And they say we're deprived. Ha!

We had a discussion privately but just so everyone knows...if you're looking for vegan ink in the DC area, go see Shawn at Tattoo Paradise in Wheaton, MD. He uses all vegan ink.

Welcome to the forum. I can't help directly with helping you find a trainer but just wanted to say hi. I'm in NYC if you are ever in the area let me know, I can give suggestions of vegan restaurants, events, and meet ups.
