About me

My name is Elyse and I’ve been eating plant based since 2011. Because I’m an emergency room nurse, I see it all, heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, amputations, blindness (from diabetes) and it’s all so preventable.  I sometimes feel like David against Goliath in trying to sway people away from their customary way of eating, of bucking the immense food system that our government tacitly (and deliberately) endorses but it’s so necessary.  We can do better and we will.  I feel like the kid throwing the one starfish back into the sea saying, “I made a difference for that one!”  One at at time, that’s how we’ll do it, one at a time.

  1. Hey Elyse! Just stumbled across your info while checking out Vegfest Spokane info- thinking about coming over the mountains to check it out. I am also an ED nurse and have been stumbling my way through since Nov. Your are so right about getting this together and doing better and unfortunately the starfish line is right on too! I will look for you on facebook, so nice to see this on here and another fellow nurse fighting the good fight, Im alsways directing pt towards wfpb and whatever infor they are willing to take in!! Best of luck to you girl!! Thanks!


    1. Aw, thanks so much for your kind words! Where do you live? I had a booth last year at Vegfest but wasn’t able to this year. It should be a good one!
