What's your favorite food or dish?

When I cook for myself I like simple stuff like oatmeal with blueberries, raw veggies and bean dip, steamed kale and whole grains. I also love Mexican food. It is fun to be in a town where there are so many exotic vegan dishes available in restaurants and from food carts.

How old are you?


How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I've been a vegan for over 30 years. I worked for Dr. John McDougall in the early 80's and did the editing on his first book, The McDougall Plan. My husband and I were the founders of the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii, and after we moved to the mainland, we helped found the Vegetarian Society of Utah. We owned a vegan restaurant in Utah for 5 years and created the menu and recipes for a weight loss spa in St. George UT. We moved to Nevada about 5 years ago and are now retired.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Walk, do yoga, line dance, read, watch movies, travel, and work on my website.


My name is Elaine French. My husband and I live in Mesquite, Nevada but we will be spending the summer in Portland.
