Brian, the passionate vegan

by KalaLea on May 13, 2014 • Posted in Interviews News

It was Easter Sunday. Not the ideal day for food shopping but I had just returned from an out of town excursion and had a hankering for some fruit and cereal.

What brought me here?

If any one would have told me that I’d be educating others on the benefits of eating healthy twenty years ago, I would have laughed in their face.

Back then, my diet consisted of cereal, soda, fast food, donuts, hot dogs, Pop-Tarts®, and chocolate chip cookies. Growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with working parents who hopped on the processing food bandwagon like many others, I hadn’t given much thought as to what I ate or why
