The time has come to share my journey from disordered eating to plant-empowered living. You are about to read Part 1 (an introduction) to the multi-part “coming out” series I am going to be sharing with you over the next few weeks. I will be sharing parts of my journey that I’ve never shared openly before. I’m thrilled that I am in a place in life where I’m able and willing to get real and raw, which means being transparent about the struggles that have made me who I am today.
Up until recently, I put a lot of pressure on myself to be the shining example of a fit, physically and emotionally healthy vegan. It’s been my mission to bring veganism into the mainstream for over twenty years. The misinformation about plant-based nutrition, and the stereotypes about vegans, in general, were so intense I purposefully made it my job to focus on only positives.
