On today's podcast, I talk to Freya Dinshah the president of the American Vegan Society and editor of American Vegan magazine. Freya grew up in an ovo-lacto-vegetarian family in Epsom Surrey, England. Her parents became vegetarian after joining the Peace Movement. Freya gave up cheese after learning about rennet. H. Jay Dinshah posted an ad in the Peace Newspaper looking for a pen pal and Freya's mother felt bad for him and told her to write to him. In 1959 her pen pal friend Jay inspired her to become vegan and in 1960 she moved to America where they married. Within a year, the rest of her family had given up dairy and eggs too.
