Speaker Series

I’m so excited to have launched an online Speaker Series as part of the Plant-Based Eating Support Network Group! There are so many wonderful, powerful voices in the vegan and plant-based communities, and this is my way of sharing some of them with you!

Coming in November 2020

I met the incredible Stefanie Ignoffo while we were both training as Food For Life instructors with the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine. Stefanie’s passion for sharing the benefits of a WFPB diet and lifestyle is so infectious, I know you are going to love our hour with her! She has a very inspiring personal story to share, and lots of practical tips to share, having successfully transitioned her family of 5 along with her! Join us for this chat/Q&A session on Tuesday, November 3 from 6-7 pm PST!

Stefanie’s family, “before and after plants”

In 2012 after concerns about her daughter wanting to go vegan, she started researching and found not only can we survive without consuming animal, but we can thrive without them. After recognizing the negative effects of the standard American diet she transitioned her and her family. They lost a total of 250 lbs. after adopting a plant-based lifestyle.

Stefanie, “before and after plants”

After regaining her health and reversing her own diseases, in February 2017, Stefanie earned her certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition at eCornell and T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. Stefanie then took her passion a step further and founded Plantspiration.com a non-profit that helps continue to advocate and bring awareness to the public about the correlation of food and disease and the importance and benefits of a plant-based vegan lifestyle for other families as well.

In her spare time Stefanie is an avid cyclist and enjoys trail riding with her husband John, and spending time with her family creating new recipes and vegan traditions.
