I am not vegan but I have two friends, Ellen Kanner and Pamela Wasabi who are and I’m here to sing their praises! They are perfect examples of vegans who are passionate about what they do!
1) I’m giving away Ellen’s vegan cookbook to celebrate the first ever plantbased living, Seed Food and Wine Festival presented by Whole Foods with lots of celebrities including many vegan, raw advocates like Alicia Silverstone, Brendan Brazier, John Salley and loads more.

About Ellen Kanner…(extract from Seed’s talent bio)
Ellen Kanner is the author of Feeding the Hungry Ghost: Life, Faith and What to Eat for Dinner, VegNews’ 2013 Book of the Year, PETA’s debut Book of the Month Club pick, Huffington Post’s Meatless Monday blogger, syndicated columnist Edgy Veggie which appears in Miami Herald, and vegan writer for numerous publications.

Find out more about Ellen here.
So many things in Ellen’s book reflect my philosophy of cooking with what you have and my visual roadmap approach to cooking! I love your humor and laid back attitude towards vegan cooking. I especially liked, “Sometimes while you’re following a recipe on the road to dinner, you find side paths, back roads that beckon and lead you to new places. Feel free to try a different vegetable, another herb…Go, explore. Strike out on your own. Honor yourself and your own taste. Trust your gut.” Amen.
