In this interesting conversation we discuss why JL became vegan, how she integrates her beliefs into her business, how she learned to cook and create cookbooks and her experience with fat shaming in the vegan community. I hope that you learn a lot from this conversation and I would love to hear what you think about fat shaming as well as health shaming in the vegan community!
