Who am I?
I first became a vegetarian 7 years ago then vegan 6 years ago. I embrace my lifestyle by eating whole foods consisting of fruits, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes. My knowledge comes from years of education, reading books, watching documentaries and a lot of research. I am also a dedicated athlete, running marathons, biking, weight lifting, and yoga.
This is not a diet but, a lifestyle!
