I can’t express how excited I am right now! A few weeks ago I submitted my story of recovering from an eating disorder and how veganism has positively impacted my relationship with food and personal health to Gena Hamshaw’s Green Recovery series on her incredible blog, Choosing Raw. I had committed to making a submission the very first day the series debuted, but wow – such a personal thing to share! As I watched the series grow and absorbed other women’s accounts of their struggles and triumphs, I realized how valuable it is to share this stuff.
I met Gena at Vida Vegan Con this past summer and, once I had told her I would submit my story, I thought “well now I HAVE to follow through!” Gena’s commitment to raising awareness of the role of veganism/health & nutrition knowledge/ethical eating as it relates to ED recovery is unwavering and a constant inspiration. I feel so honored to be a part of this series and hope more and more vegans share their stories!
