So many people start a vegan journey to lose weight and fall off when the results don't happen fast enough. This wasn't the case at all for Chemese!
After trying every diet you can think of and desperately wanting to change her 300 lb frame, she decided to eat a raw vegan diet of tons of fresh fruit & vegetables (minimum cooked food).
In the latest podcast episode, I talk to Chemese about her journey and why she started a 100-day detox to ring in the new year with clarity, exercise and nothing but fresh juice & smoothies.
Not bad for someone who didn't grow up eating vegetables! :-)

I received a great email the other day, asking what spices and other pantry ingredients are a good starting point for a new vegan.
You don’t need a whole lot of exotic ingredients to start your vegan journey right now.
In fact, you probably use most of these ingredients already.
