"It's compassion for the animals, it's for the environment, it's for my own personal health... I just know it's the right thing to do."
On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with fellow Hingham resident Jen Hemmerdinger. Jen and I connected via an awesome new group I've linked up with of vegan corporate professionals in the Boston area. When I saw that Jen lived in Hingham, I was extremely excited to connect and chat more with her. We talk about how Jen was raised as a vegetarian, what it was like as a kid eating that way, how she coexists with an omnivorous husband, eating plant based while traveling, and why she made the leap to vegan in the past couple of years. Jen is an amazing example of the power of a plant based diet, and through her Instagram, she does a great job of showing how simple and delicious it is! I love seeing people in the town that I grew up in, a place very dear to me, living this lifestyle! P.S. Like all of my other guests, Jen looks 10 years younger than she is... because she eats plants!
