Hip-hop Icon Brings Vegan Food to The Breakfast Club

Music icon, yogi, and author Russell Simmons spoke in-depth about his vegan lifestyle during a recent interview on radio show The Breakfast Club.  He discusses his reasons for going vegan and why he feels compelled to share his knowledge.  During the interview he orders in all sorts of delicious vegan sandwiches and confort foods to demonstrate how easy and delicious plant based food can be.
One of the things I love about Simmons is how he shares his knowledge with those who may not be aware of their realities.  He doesn't talk down to people.  He shares his journey and knowledge without judgement.  He meets disagreement with discussion about finding common ground and progressing from there.  I just got The Happy Vegan and am excited to read it.
