Vegan for Her to launch in Colorado
Good morning, friends! It’s been awhile since I have posted on a Sunday and, sad to say, still no “vegan news you can use” today. This has been my first weekend home in five weeks and I’m drinking it in! I co-taught a class on quick and easy plant-based meals for kids. Once the class wrapped up I told myself ‘no work for 36 hours’! And I just might stick to it.
I’m heading out for a hike this morning with my friend Barb of That Was Vegan? and am really looking forward to it. Six months ago Dave and I moved to Colorado. I had no idea that we would make such good, wonderful friends so quickly. She is one of many people who welcomed me warmly and I’m grateful. Colorado felt like home pretty much the minute we drove across the state line
I launched my coaching and education practice a few months later and have taught vegan lifestyle and cooking classes, started kitchen coaching and home-cooked meal services, and even wrote my first free-lance piece for the local alternative weekly. By the way, my next Colorado Springs class – Saturday, June 22 – is a Summer Soups & Salad Cooking Demo Class. I will provide a full lunch featuring two soups, two salads, vegan wine!

A few months ago I was named Lead Organizer of the Colorado Springs Vegan and Vegetarian Group Meetup and have been having so much planning events to help people go vegan, or stay vegan, with my new friends on the leadership team. We have some fun things coming up (group calendar is here) and I’m really excited about agrocery store tour I’m doing on Sunday, June 29, which will benefit Vegan Life Colorado.
With such a warm welcome to Colorado it didn’t take me long to realize that this was the most natural, perfect place to celebrate the publication of Vegan for Her: The Woman’s Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet.
