Hello, and thanks for visiting the Easy Vegetarian Diet website!
I'm sure it's no surprise that I'm a committed vegetarian. In fact, I've been on a vegetarian diet for the last twelve years, and I've never looked back.
Switching to a vegetarian diet was a natural transition for me. I practiced yoga for a number of years, and one of my teachers always talked about nonharming of all beings. One day the connection between eating meat and harming animals just clicked. From that day forward, I stopped eating meat, poultry, or fish. I don't miss it and have no doubt that I'll remain a vegetarian for the rest of my life.
"It is far better to be happy than to have our bodies act as graveyards for animals."

Born and raised in Queens, NY, I have been living in New York City for more than half my life. One big plus is we have an incredible selection of organic produce, great farmers' markets, and dozens of health food stores.
I received a B.S. from New York University and my Health Coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). At IIN I studied over 100 dietary theories, including vegetarianism, lifestyle management techniques, and innovative, health coaching methods with some of the world's leading health and wellness experts.
If you have any questions or comments on the site, I would love to hear from you.
