"Eat Vegan On $4 A Day" Author Jones on Talking Animals
My guest on "Talking Animals" Nov. 23 will be ELLEN JAFFE JONES, a personal trainer, running coach, cooking instructor (including a stint for The Cancer Project), and author of "Eat Vegan On $4 A Day: A Gameplan For The Budget Conscious Cook," which proved to be so popular that it quickly went to a second printing.
A resident of Holmes Beach, FL and known as the "Veg Coach," Jones is a former award-winning TV news reporter and financial consultant who 30 years ago--at age 28--drastically changed her diet, prompted by a medical scare and recognizing that several famliy members had contended with cancer and heart disease. For most of those years, she toggled between a vegan and vegetarian diet, going strictly vegan about seven years ago.
"Eat Vegan On $4 A Day" is a guide and cookbook which certainly counters the contention that it's expensive to eat vegan. I also thought the day before Thanksgiving would make for an interesting and timely discussion about vegan cooking & eating.
Ellen Jaffe Jones will speak with us live, in studio, on "Talking Animals" Nov. 23 at 11am, and listeners are invited to participate in the conversation by calling (813-239-9663) or e-mailing (DJ@wmnf.org).
