My Vegan Story: AHIMSA = Non-Harming
I went vegan in 2002 after learning about the book, “Diet for a New America,” by John Robbins, who was the heir to Baskin Robbins and chose to become a plant-based writer instead.
I was already vegetarian due to my love for animals, but I was having allergies, asthma and acne, because I was allergic to dairy and didn’t know it. When I went vegan my skin and health issues cleared up.
Once I learned about the cruelty in the egg and dairy industry, I went vegan for the animals and fish, and have never looked back! It’s the single best decision I have ever made for my health, the animals and the planet.
I am a certified Plant-Based Nutrition and Cooking instructor with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine: www.pcrm.org. I love teaching and sharing the benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.
I worked for the Humane Society of the United States with their Forward Food program to help get plant-based foods into schools, colleges and hospitals.
I host a Vegan Cooking Show on YouTube called, Vegan Vitality:
