OP-ED: An Open Letter to J. Cole: Your Music Helped Me Recover From My Depression

My name is Jasmin. It just so happens 2014 was one of the worst years of my life. I had already been dealing with major depressive disorder for almost several years at the time. However 2014 I had it extremely bad. Mind numbing bad. Thank God I eventually found my way out of that deep dark hole but it took me awhile. Depression is not an easy illness to deal with. I didn't even know who I was anymore for a while. I couldn't sleep at night. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I couldn't even get…See More

OP-ED: Black Vegans Rock - Sisters Marji and Jasmine promote compassionate, plant-based vegan by creating Anything Vegan

Sisters Marji and Jasmine are chefs, certified nutritionists, food justice advocates and public speakers, affectionately known by their clients as the Anything Vegan Girls. The seeds to healthy eating were planted very early-on for these two sisters. Looking back on our childhoods, family reunions hold a special place in our heart. These were the times when our huge family would come from all over, celebrate family, laugh and cook amazingly delicious food. We eat southern-style soul food and…See More

FEATURE: Black Vegans Rock - Jamila Anahata of The Soulful Veganista talks unlearning nutrition misconceptions

My name is Jamila Anahata and I have been a super happy vegan for three years now! It all started when I went on a corny health kick, one that resembled the ever-so-popular starvation diets where my staples were “lean proteins” and “healthy” TV dinners. Although I was losing the weight and seeing somewhat of a difference in my body, I just knew that something was not right about my diet. I always had constipation, acne, weight fluctuation, borderline insomnia, poor digestion, and other nasty…See More

FEATURE: Black Vegans Rock: meat/dairy-free newcomer Jasmine celebrates first year of ethical food consumption

My name is Jasmine and I've been vegan now for one year! My journey didn't happen the way I expected it too. I honestly didn't know my journey would even lead to veganism. I started out as a pescatarian in October of 2014, mainly for my health. My husband was worried about our blood pressure since it runs in both of our families. So, I decided to take initiative and get on the right track. I was eating meat once a month and then in November of that year, the day that I had saved for my "meat…See More

FEATURE: Black Vegans Rock - NYC-based vlogger Nathalie Etienne pairs holistic, clean eating with Caribbean-inspired foods and flavors

Hi, my name is Nathalie Etienne and I am a Caribbean-American vegan based in NYC. My vegan journey started during my sophomore year of college in 2012 when I started taking some time out to learn how I could possibly improve my well-being. I wasn't suffering from any illness but I was trying to figure out how I could integrate natural preventative care practices into my daily life. A lot of the information I received were from well studied naturopathic healers, such as Dr. Phil Valentine and…See More
