My name is Christine and I have been vegan since January 1st, 2012 (it’s the ONLY New Year’s Resolution I have EVER kept!!).
I went vegan 100% for the animals, but quickly learned that the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle were a pretty amazing side-effect!
I was born in NYC, raised in Los Angeles., and am currently living in Minneapolis (yes….I moved here knowing how snowy and cold it can be!!….but I love it!).
I have 3 rescue pets – a dog named Dakota (she’s a Black Lab/Cattle Dog mix from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota) and two cats (William – a Maine Coon mix who thinks he is a dog, and Chloe, my ginger Tabby who was found abandoned as a kitten outside an engine parts store in the middle of a frigid Minnesota December).
I am a proud health and nutrition nerd, with a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition, and I genuinely believe that THE BEST WAY to be an advocate for a vegan lifestyle, is to live your happiest and healthiest vegan life.
