I grew up in the beautiful state of Ohio, went to college in North Carolina, and moved to Los Angeles where I now live with my husband and son. In recent years whenever I ate meat, I thought, “Why am I eating this?” I ate it because it was there. It was when my friend, Naomi, told me she had gone vegan that I thought, “Wow, you can do that?” So I started educating myself on the topic and became vegan myself about a year ago. My son was one at the time and he became vegan, too. We became vegan because it’s the right thing to do for your body and for the planet, plain and simple!
