If there's one person who put the vegan lifestyle on the map, it would have to be Kathy Freston. For over 10 years, Kathy has been part of the plant-based movement. She has written nine books including Veganist, The Lean, Clean Protein, and Quantum Wellness. Her newest offering, co-authored with Gene Stone, is entitled “72 Reasons To Be Vegan – Why Plant-Based. Why Now which was released on March 30 of this year.

Kathy's appearance on The Oprah Winfrey show inspired Oprah and her entire staff to go entirely vegan for 21 days. In addition, Kathy appears frequently on national TV, including Ellen, Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The Talk, Extra, and Oprah, and her work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Self, W, Fitness, and The Huffington Post.
