Why did you decide to eat more plants?
I’ve been vegetarian on and off for 40 years. Then our eldest became vegetarian, and I was back “on.” Then she became vegan and introduced me to this group and batching. I’m 95% vegan now because I’m concerned about the environmental impact of meat-eating and animal mistreatment (but I don’t judge omnis—love many!).
How has eating more plants helped you?
I have become a more confident cook since cooking vegan and using Plant Fueled Life! I love knowing I can always make a big ass salad and have my choice of lots of dressings!
How has our open-minded, LGBTQIA+ friendly community impacted your life?
I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the US, a part of our world where it is safe and accepted to be queer. I could not have joined a group that was not open and inclusive!
What is the most important thing you’d like to share with the Clean Food Dirty Girl community?
I am happily married (37 years), a feminist, a mom (2 adult daughters), a dog lover, and an adoption social worker.
