Hi I’m Debi Chew,
I’m a vegan RN. As a nurse I get many questions about my lifestyle and choices. I love to cook and I am always happy to share my recipes with everyone. I had been vegetarian in my twenties but eventually went back to eating meat and dairy. As time went on I wanted to return to a more plant based diet.
I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2008 and went gluten free while still eating the standard American diet (SAD). In 2011 I watched Forks Over Knives, after that I went vegetarian for a month then went totally vegan but still ate a lot of vegan junk food.
In 2012 I was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis and decided to eat a whole food plant based diet to help heal myself. I am happy to say I have been in remission since the beginning of 2013 and I even ran a 1/2 marathon that October.
So as you can see it was a long process to get to where I am today. I started a you tube channel Chew on Vegan at the end of 2016. I wanted to show the world how easy it is to eat a whole food plant based diet. Here and on my youtube channel you will find lots of easy delicious recipes.
I want people to learn that their health is directly related to their diet. Remember what you put on your plate determines your fate. Eating a whole food plant diet is not only essential for a long healthy life, it is essential to the health of our planet and all the other animals here on planet earth.
