Animal Lover at Heart
"It’s about helping people, helping animals, and helping the planet." - Cheryl Martinez
My entire life I wanted to help save animals. I contributed to and raised money for various sanctuaries, but my impact was small considering how many animals are suffering every day. When I came up with the idea for Veginner Cooking, my heart was filled with joy! I knew this was how I could save countless animals while also helping people adapt happier, healthier lifestyles. Every day I inspire more people to transform their lives, and guide them along their personal journey. This is my mission... to spread plant-based love around the world so we can save more animals together. ♥
My passion for animal welfare has been a driving force throughout my entire life. I've contributed to and raised money for various sanctuaries, but always wanted to do more. Coming from a meat-loving family in New York, my plant-forward journey was not easy.
In 2012, I began my journey in India, then after 8 years as a vegetarian I finally went 100% plant-based. I did not have the community or resources like Veginner Cooking to help make my transition process easier, and this was my inspiration. In 2020, I started my blog knowing this was how I could make the biggest possible impact, for both animals and Veginners (vegan-beginners).
Every day I inspire more people to transform their lives, while guiding them on their personal wellness journey. This is my mission... to inspire health and compassion around the world. I humbly invite you to join my community as a Veginner or Mentor so we can save even more animals together. ♥ Read my full story here
