Plant-based living is something to really celebrate. It can reverse and help eliminate our risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and many cancers. I’m eight years a vegan now and it feels awesome!
My pre-vegan life included over 15 years consulting to the foodservice industry and leading traditional culinary arts programs. I decided to give it all up in the late 90’s and started working as a college recruiter, grant writer and scholarship manager. During my last year of employment as a educational consultant with Southern California Edison I was introduced to the vegan diet and from there my life took a new turn again. I was laid off from my six-figure consulting job at San Onofre in the spring of 2011 and decided to risk it all and start representing the smallest margin of opportunity, plant-based foods. While the vegan population is still registering at under 10% we are on our way now to creating significant and lasting change in foodservice ahead.
