“What Do Vegans Eat? started as a scrapbook-style presentation for a Brisbane vegan group,” says Leigh-Chantelle. “I wanted my presentation to be fun and visually appealing, yet still have the important educational aspects of a vegan health talk. I combined my love for fun, easy to comprehend education, with food and animal photographs and myself posing to create what I hope is an inspiring look at how easy being a vegan is nowadays.“
While Leigh-Chantelle focuses mostly on the food aspects of veganism in What Do Vegans Eat?, she points out that veganism is not just a diet. “Being vegan is a lifestyle and a set of ethical values that myself and many others choose to embrace” she says. “I hope that I inspire others by leading by example to show how easy it is to live in line with your ethics and values.” She encourages all vegans and potential vegans to educate themselves to the other benefits of the vegan lifestyle including: Animal rights and Welfare, Environment and Sustainability, Ethical and moral issues, Health, Spiritual and/or Religious beliefs, Weight loss or control.
