For now I am SO EXCITED to introduce our newest newbie in training, Taryn De La Rosa!!! YAY!!! I'm super excited for Taryn because she agreed to start the GirlieVegan Raw Till 4pm 22 Day Challenge!
Taryn lives in Corpus Christi, Texas and her options are pretty limited when it comes to having vegan restaurants or even vegan support for that matter. But like a true Leo she wasn't afraid to take on this challenge! Between my guidance and her research she was able to find a great store in Corpus Christi called Sprouts and realized they sold vegan products! Taryn is now aware of websites like VeganEssentials.com which sell all vegan products :)
Throughout the 22 days Taryn will be blogging on GirlieVegan.com about her new vegan journey. I ask that all vegans new or seasoned, please join me in supporting and mentoring our dear Taryn! You can feel free to contact her thru her GirlieVegan posts or directly on her social media which is listed below. Feel free to give her recipes, ideas, mental and emotional support. As a wellness, health, spiritual, animal rights and vegan community we should be there for each other. This GirlieVegan is sooo happy to support and coach Ms. De La Rosa!!! I have no doubt that GirlieVegan Taryn will ace this task!
Let's get to know her a bit better, shall we?!
