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

I was movtivated to make this lifestlye change because I wad diagnosed with scarcodosis, which is an autoimmune deficiency. After seeing the movie fork and knives I am trying the plant=based lifestyle as an alternative to going on steriods, which is the medical treatment for scarcodosis.

Do you have any favorite foods or dishes?

I have always loved vegatables. If I had to choose I would say spinach.

Are you vegan? Vegetarian? Veg-curious?


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

I went cold turkey and I am still learning new ways to cook vegetarian. The first 3 days I felt miserable; hoever, once I got pass a week I began to feel better. I am now feeling the best that I have felt since I was a little girl running around with insurmountable energy.


I started my vegan journey on September 14,2011 after seeing the fork and knives documentary. Since starting my new lifestyle, I have more energy and I feel great.
