If you have any questions — let us know!

What is Your Reason?
It is a good idea to take some time to determine what your reason for trying out Vegan is:
Your reason may be one or all — in any case, you should spend a little time researching your reason. The more you know, the easier this lifestyle will be. There are several resources that discuss these reasons on this page.
Go easy on yourself!
It is not easy for everyone to make this transition. It is OK if you slip or accidentally consume animal products throughout the process! Just start again with the next day or meal! The longer you stick with this (try and try again), the more impact you will have — even one day a week can make a difference! We are here to support you and make sure you are enjoying your meals. This is not a diet and you should not feel as if you are limiting yourself; you are just modifying how you get the same meal satisfaction!
We will be hosting weekly cooking demonstration and some speaking events. Check the Calendar page on this site for event schedule. We will work with you to find food options that will keep you satisfied and fit your lifestyle and provide both live support via Zoom, phone, or in-person appointments as well as email. Use the Appointments section to schedule a free consultation.
