Summary

Before going vegan, Nicole Derseweh wanted to travel the world and taste every cheese imaginable. But her health was suffering. As a fitness model, her body looked healthy, but it hid a worrying truth: her high protein diet was stressing out her gall bladder and liver, and her blood pressure was through the roof. With her grandma fighting cancer, and other members of her family unwell, Nicole knew something was wrong. She began looking at her diet. It took a year between watching her first documentary (Earthlings) to converting to 100% plant-based. The journey was tough, but it was worth it. As soon as she gave up dairy, her heath transformed. But her recovery went deeper than just the physical. Nicole had struggled with anorexia in high school. While she overcame the behaviors by becoming a fitness model, the self-loathing thoughts were still there. When she became vegan, those thoughts disappeared. Choosing to go vegan was such an empowering and positive decision that it healed her psyche as well as her physical health. And now Nicole is dedicated to inspiring newbie and wannabe vegans with delicious plant-based food that can tempt even the most dedicated carnivore.
