So this week I was able to get some new health tips from marathon runner, health advocate, and vegan, Anna. I had had so many questions for her, especially about the vegan lifestyle. I definitely enjoyed meeting her and it was nice to hear what she had to say, trust me she knows her stuff. I try my best to exercise and eat right, and it's always great to learn more. It was a good time getting to know her, I really enjoyed our conversation.
Growing up, Anna was traveling back and forth from Maryland to Japan. Meat was very normal to her and her family. Like many, she ate meat everyday. A little over a year ago she watched the documentary, "Vegucated", which focuses on the farm industry and the treatment of animals. That changed her whole perspective. After seeing that documentary she made a promise to herself that she would no longer support any company that uses animals to make products.
For a lot of people being vegan seems like a diet that would make it difficult to find a nice place to eat at. Contrary to that belief, you would be very shocked at how many vegan friendly restaurants there actually are. Anna currently resides in Brooklyn and she says that vegan restaurants are all over the place. In fact some of her favorite places in the city to go to are "By Chloe", "Clementine Bakery", and "Buddha Bodai".
Anna knows so many different vegan recipes, just take a look at her Instagram: @runningvegannyc
I'm De La True, Peace.
