I am so delighted to have Gena Hamshaw on the blog today, talking about her new cookbook, Choosing Raw, veganism, cooking and more. I have been following Gena’s blog (by the same name) for years now. Her voice is reasoned, intelligent, warm, and candid. She’s unafraid to tackle difficult topics and shares her own vulnerabilities with strength and bravery. When I met Gena last year in person at Vida Vegan Con, I was delighted to discover that the same warmth and spirit that she exudes on her blog comes through in full force in real life. She’s one of those people you just have to hug.
