I love Facebook. I have met such an amazing people there. This is also where I have met most of my vegan friends and today I would like to introduce you to Patty Goodman -animal rights activist and a vegan health nut.As a member of the Georgia Animal Rights and Protection Patty takes part in demonstrations, meetings, fundraisers and social events .
Patty lives in Smyrna, Georgia with her family. These days Patty is looking to de-clutter her living areas and her life. She love anything raw, vegan, healthy. Patty said ” Health truly IS wealth!”.
So here is her interview.
1.How long have you been vegan for? Patty : I’ve been vegan since October 2011.
2.What made you go vegan? Patty : I started learning about factory farming as I was learning about GMO’s. After seeing videos of the atrocities that go on, I finally woke up and decided I didn’t want to participate in that any longer. I truly had no idea. One of my daughters announced in October 2011 that she wanted to become a vegan and I jumped on board at that very moment. My son followed a month or so later. Still working on my oldest child.
3.Do you take any supplements? Patty : I don’t take as many as I used to. I take a B-complex and a B-12, but that’s about all I take these days.
4.What are your favourate vegan dishes? Patty : The simplest ones are my favorites…homemade hummus, avocado toast, salads, nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies, soups. I like to eat foods in their natural state as much as possible these days.
5.What is your advice to new vegans? Patty : Don’t expect to know everything about food choices all at once. I bought some vegan cookbooks and tried things out. I’ve always been a health nut, so it wasn’t hard for me to eat grains and tofu and such. You have to take your time to discover what you like and don’t like and the discovery is part of the adventure. There are so many delicious foods to be had.
6. What books would you recommend to new vegans? Patty : I can’t say enough about Chloe Coscarelli’s Chloe’s Kitchen cookbook. I guess that is because I like easy recipes, nothing with 20 ingredients and 19 of which I don’t have on hand. If you go to Amazon, you can peruse an array of good cookbooks and read the reviews. As for books about being a vegan, I love The World Peace Diet by Will Tuttle. It is my favorite.
7.If you had a magic wand what would be the one thing, that you would change in the world? Patty ; I would change the way everyone eats. Everyone would be vegan and no animal would be killed to be eaten or its skin used or to be experimented on in a lab. I would wish that everyone would live and eat compassionately.
There is nothing more I can add to that. I love Patty ‘s energy and such a lively and inspiring posts.
