About Viva La Vegan!
Viva la Vegan! started in 2005 as a launching pad for the Viva la Vegan! Recipe Calendars created by Leigh-Chantelle, ND.
Viva la Vegan! has since grown to be an interactive, multimedia community for vegans focusing on positive education, information and vegan outreach.
Through the vivalavegan.net website, Leigh-Chantelle’s focus is on educating people to ethical lifestyle choices, proving that via compassion we can heal ourselves and each other. Vivalavegan.net focuses on easy to prepare recipes, blogs and articles, interactive forum, informative and how-to videos, interviews with inspiring vegans, vegan mentoring and much more.
"Promoting healing through compassionate lifestyle choices"
is our motto and we believe in the power of positive influence and inspiration.
