Sherra Aguirre, author of the soon-to-be-released book Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease, discovered the positive health effects of a plant-based diet in her personal life and is passionate about getting the word out.

Her book is going to be released in late May but is available for pre-order and you can find her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and through her website, SherraAguirre.com.
In the early spring of 1999, my husband and I went to Negril, Jamaica. It was a lovely, low-key, off-season trip, one where we spent most of our days on the beach or on the cliffs, riding bikes and wading in the dazzling turquoise ocean with a perpetual contact high.

“Journalism is the first rough draft of history.”
I heard this quote for the first time the other day, a quote that a little digging revealed is kind of a chestnut among journalists but it was the first time I’d heard it. It is often attributed to a long-ago publisher of the Washington Post, now thought to have originated with a New Republic book reviewer.

Tucker, a former bow tie enthusiast, got in a snit about it. Ivanka, an author, huffed about it. Donald, a former reality show host and failed lifestyle magazine mogul, railed against it.
