Welcome to my blog. My name is Eric and I’m an Italian who grew up in South Philly. From a very early age I found out I had a love of good food and a passion to cook. This has served me well over the years and in some cases a little too well!
Back in August of 2011 I was overweight at 260 pounds, tired and feeling sick all the time. I started down a road to ‘get healthy’. That road had some twists and turns to it and eventually lead me to where I am today – a vegan runner who still has a passion for cooking and eating along with a newfound passion for the welfare of all animals.
I hope you come along for the ride while I explore this very exciting time in Philadelphia. Recently there was a philly.com article exploring why 2016 could very well be the ‘Year of the Vegan’ in Philly! This is a great vegan city, and I’m excited to share all of my experiences in and around Philly with you! There is a vegan revolution happening and I hope you are part of it with me!
