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: 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:
