And the winner is a bible-thumpin’ über veganista. The mind reels. And then … I became one. Mostly. Following a vegan diet is good for the planet and best for your health. Science says so. And I proved it. Get ready for some anecdotal evidence. My blood pressure was high and my bad cholesterol was inching into LOOK OUT! Territory.
