About Viva La Vegan!
Viva la Vegan! started in 2005 to promote Leigh-Chantelle's recipe calendars, and educate others about the vegan lifestyle. 2015 sees the 10th anniversary of this oft-shared and much-loved Australian site, that has grown to be an interactive, multimedia community for vegans (and vegan curious) all over the world, focusing on positive education, information and vegan outreach.
Through the vivalavegan.net website, Leigh-Chantelle's focus is on educating people about ethical lifestyle choices, proving that through compassion we can heal ourselves and each other. Vivalavegan.net focuses on easy-to-prepare recipes, blogs, articles, podcasts, informative and how-to videos, interviews with inspiring vegans, eBooks, print books and much more.
The 10th anniversary of Viva la Vegan! sees a complete overhaul of the website, with more focus on Leigh-Chantelle's passions: Speaking, Consulting, Training and Coaching.
