Life as a vegan has changed dramatically for me since moving to the West Coast in June 2015. Social life can be challenging when your friends and family don’t practice the same values, but with the abundance of vegan restaurants in L.A., l am thriving on a plant-based lifestyle.

Californians are spoiled with the availability of fresh produce year-round. This also means we get to experience some of the best plant-based cuisine in our restaurants. With great produce comes great vegan cuisine. So thank you L.A. for spoiling me in the healthiest and most compassionate way with your exceptional vegan fare!
