My name is Heather and I was brought to 30 Bananas A Day by a blog on Youtube that I really love called EasyToBeRaw. I am 29 years old and a wife and mother of two small children. I have been a vegan for years now and am 3 months into a raw vegan lifestyle. I love it and don't wish to go back ever! I am a stay at home mom and I also teach Spanish to K-7 and run a vegan catering business from my home kitchen called La Vida Veggie. I am really excited to find a community of like minded people.

Are you Connected?
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I am a chef so I LOVE cookbooks. I could read them all day. I also love anything food related included throwing parties, going out to new restaurants, etc. I am also big into attachment parenting and education and I particulary like books pertaining to these subjects such as "Education For Life," "Sharing Nature With Children" and "Calm and Compassionate Children." I don't get much reading time these days with two small children. I love to watch social documentaries and independent films.
