Veganuary 2019

Click to read my featurette about my veganism story in the wellness pages of Psychologies, February 2019.

Despite being veggie for years, I never thought I’d go vegan. Two years later, and I feel stronger, more nourished and love cooking and eating out – because of going vegan. Psychologies asked me to write about my journey, and how my mind and body has changed.

I first met Gabriela on a retreat in Tobago and was honoured to work with her again. Gabriela welcomed us into her home to experience and document her nourishing lifestyle of raw vegan food, meditation, walking, yoga and living in harmony with nature. She was truly inspiring and the feature explores her journey to this.
