"The reason I started vegan baking was because my oldest daughter was entering preschool and we realized a lot of kids in her class had allergies. I wanted to have a birthday party for her, but I wanted for all the kids to be involved. Everybody can have cake, everybody can have snacks. I wanted those kids with allergies to be able to have everything all the other kids have. It was really about inclusion to start with but there are a lot of benefits to being vegan. Cancer is one of the leading causes for death in the united stated and that comes a lot from red meat. Vegan food has no read meat in it. Vegan is also better for the environment. "
