Hi everyone, my name is Isabella and I am 16 years old. I have grown up in the plant world my whole life. I live on a farm where my parents used to grow and sell fresh produce. Now my dad does green construction and my mom is the executive director of a nonprofit organization United Plant Savers. I have had an interest in plant medicine and wild food harvesting/cooking for as long as I can remember. Growing up I have had people tell me how I have such a “healthy” diet. Compared to most of the average child/teen I probably do, but realistically I could be doing better. Now that I am older and into researching about “a good diet” and “healthy lifestyles” I am inspired to share with the world have found that a healthy eater is not just about eating your veggies. I am now a homeschooler who is also dual enrolled at community college.
Hey whats up? My name is Luke and I am 18 years old. My whole life I have lived in the suburbs of northern Virginia and have eaten a loose plant based diet due to my mother being a vegetarian. As a child, my diet has never been strictly plant based, however, my mother did not often make us meat for our meals. Almost two years ago ,in June of 2017, I decided to go on a completely plant based diet for the summer, just out of curiosity. I successfully did not eat any meat or dairy for the summer and I loved the diet/lifestyle. I felt better, enjoyed making my own plant based recipes, and decided to transition fully to this lifestyle. I do have slip ups eating some dairy, but for majority of the time I do eat a vegan diet. Currently, I am a university student and, to my surprise, this has made eating vegan easier! My university caters greatly to the vegan students and consistently offers a variety of vegan options for every meal.
