My journey to veganism started years ago and involved taking small steps. I discovered juicing in my late 20’s while living in Los Angeles and working at a vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurant.
My unconscious march toward a plant based life was spurred on by various health conditions throughout my 30’s. Skin issues and digestive problems tormented me my whole life. Eliminating various animal products from my diet seemed to help.
I also started juicing regularly and adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to my diet. During a summer break from film school, I made a documentary called 7days 2guys 1juicer.
My full commitment to living a vegan lifestyle began as 30 day vegan challenge. A friend of mine had just completed one and could not stop talking about how great he felt. It was a no-brainer for me to embark on my own challenge. It was easier than I thought.
My mission with this blog is not to convince or convert anyone to veganism but rather to show and illustrate how easy it is to live a more plant based lifestyle in todays world. Its easier than its ever been.
As a filmmaker, I thought it would be a great idea to document my vegan journey. FAST FOOD VEGAN is a documentary I made during my 30 day vegan challenge.
