Hello – I’m Elisa. Thank you for visiting my blog!
Freeheel Vegan is a place where PASSIONS converge…Passion For LIVING, Passion for LIFE…
I love to freeheel (telemark) ski, mountain bike, and hike (among other things!). I love the beauty of nature and healthy living. I have a wonderful family, including my new baby, born in August 2014. I’m grateful.
I went vegan in August 2008 (read my story of transformation) and I’ve been passionate about Veganism ever since. I’m committed to being a positive voice for animals. I volunteered at a local goat rescue for 5 years, before I got pregnant with my son. My husband and I will teach our son to co-exist with animals without using them. I’m also an Occupational Therapist and I promote a healthy vegan diet because plant foods are the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. I love vegan cooking.
Bottom line: I want to help make the world a better place for all who live. I enjoy my life immensely and I think it’s only fair that animals be granted their right to live and enjoy their lives, too. This blog is just one way that I promote Veganism.
Freeheel Vegan is about FREEDOM…
Free your Heels – Literally this means telemark ski! Liberate your heels & enjoy skiing on a whole different level. Metaphorically…Free yourself from whatever it is that keeps you “locked down.”
Free your Mind – Be open to new ideas. Think critically & challenge the status quo. Cultivate empathy. Experience the peace that comes from practicing non-violence.
Free the Animals – Live & let live. Extend fairness & compassion to all living beings. Reject the unnecessary exploitation & killing of animals. Speak up & take action for the oppressed. Help the rescued. Support non animal based research & chemical testing. Live vegan. DO something.
Now…have a look around!
