Vegan Story: Misdiagnosed with Celiac disease in 2011, I cut out gluten from my diet and became consciously aware of what I was putting on and into my body. I started educating myself with books and documentaries and finally awoke to the harsh truth society has brainwashed us from discovering. I then immediately cut out meat & dairy and healed my digestive issues as well as depression. Living in Michigan my entire life, I never met another vegan until I started educating others and hosting potlucks, but this wasn't enough. I wanted to surround myself in a vegan community and thrive. I decided to pack everything I owned into my car and drove over 2,000 miles west to sunny Southern California, a.k.a. Vegan Paradise! It's been one year living here and I am living a high raw vegan lifestyle and never been happier!
