Viva La Vegan!

Tuesday night I joined The Vegan Hour FaceBook live stream with Harry Bolman from Gold Coast group Vegan Life. We spoke about my books, why I went vegetarian, then vegan 20 years ago, the limitations of going vegan for your health, and we answered a heap of live questions. There's 500+ views already on FaceBook!
