I can see my abs now! I have no desire for a burger, I grow kale in my garden and I have a plant-based kitchen in my home. I cooked a plant-based dinner on Christmas for 14 people and everyone loved it! My partner and I love to enjoy vegan shakes in the morning. He’s really into it now, too.

I will be the living example of the change I wish to see in this world.
