What sports are you involved in?

There are many activities that I enjoy, but nothing that I'm too dedicated to. I love a good kickboxing or yoga class, running, bowling, camping/hiking, ice skating/skating to name a few, but have varied interests.

What made you choose a vegan lifestyle?

Health first. I really want to protect my body from as many ailments as I can. Sustainability second. I'm passionate about the environment and believe that we can lessen our footprint by participating in a plant-based diet. Animal Welfare third. While I don't believe that it's morally wrong to eat animals, I do believe that the way we raise and treat the majority of livestock is unethical and causes more problems than it solves. The commercial livestock industry is inherently cruel.

What do you like to do on weekends apart from training?

Writing my food articles, walking with my dogs and visiting the arts/theatre in DC.

Red Wine, White wine, or Grape Juice?

Red wine, a shiraz or malbec preferably.

What is your favorite Vegan treat?

Falafels are my junk food! I'm not a sugar person, so I crave the fried, salty goodness. My fav spot is Amsterdam Falafel.

Introduction

I'm Jamie, a newly converted vegan. I'm in marketing by day, food blogging by night. I'm just getting into being athletic and haven't found what I really love yet, but for the most part, I enjoy participating in most sports.
