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

I have always been into fitness and nutrition. Like the majority of the population, I was convinced you needed animal-based foods to remain strong and healthy. A few years ago after one too many colds and allergies, I decided to cut all dairy from my life. This was the best move I made for my health at the time and it also lead to cutting chicken and meat. After never really feeling great as I thought I would the next day, I finally removed fish and eggs and realized that I could recover faster without any animal products and I felt much better all around. My allergies have disappeared and I no longer get long drawn out colds. Then I discovered what really happens to animals used for food, clothes, and all exploitation; this sealed the deal for me.

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?
