Please share with us what motivated you to transition to a healthier, plant-based diet and lifestyle .

For a long time I have thought that animals did not need to suffer and die for my consumption. I have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian since age 16, and became a vegan in 2013.

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?

So hard to choose! My current addiction is Sahara Cuisine's oil-free, tahini-free sweet roasted red pepper hummus.

Are you vegan? Vegetarian? Veg-curious?

I follow Dr. Esselstyn's no-oil, whole foods vegan diet. I am also gluten-free and do my best to avoid soy.

If you are not vegan just yet, how is your transition going and how can we help?

Hi, I'm new to the west side of Cleveland and am excited to explore the area and meet new people along the way. I have lots of different interests, including reading, writing, music, hiking, nutrition, and wellness.
