Del Sroufe: Being “Better Than Vegan” on the Vegan Mainstream Cookbook Club

Those who have been vegan for a while know that although veganism can be an extremely healthy way to eat, being vegan doesn’t automatically mean being healthy. In fact, it’s just as easy to be an unhealthy vegan as it is to be a healthy vegan. The guest chef we have with us this week on the Vegan Mainstream Cookbook Club – Chef Del Sroufe – knows this first hand.

After converting to a vegan diet with minimal processed foods, sugars, and added oils, he lost more than 240 pounds without giving up taste.”
