Viva la Vegan!
Viva la Vegan! started in 2005 to promote Leigh-Chantelle's recipe calendars, and educate others about the vegan lifestyle. 2015 saw the 10th anniversary of this oft-shared and much-loved Australian website, that has grown to be an interactive, multimedia community for vegans (and veg-curious), focusing on positive education, information and vegan outreach.
Through the vivalavegan.net website, Leigh-Chantelle’s focus is on educating people about ethical lifestyle choices, proving that through compassion we can heal ourselves and each other. Vivalavegan.net focuses on easy-to-prepare recipes, blogs, articles, podcasts, informative and how-to videos, interviews with inspiring vegans, eBooks, print books and much more.
The 10th anniversary saw a complete overhaul of the website, with more focus on Leigh-Chantelle's passions: Speaking, Consulting, and writing books.
