Today I’m joined by Lauren Toyota - Vegan Queen of the Internet. Seriously, this woman is on fire! As one of Canada's most recognizable media voices, Lauren has made a name for herself as an inspirational, influential voice of a generation. After transitioning from almost a decade on television as a MuchMusic VJ, she’s now a self-made content producer for more than 8 successful social channels. From YouTube to Twitter to Instagram, with hundreds of thousands of combined followers, fans, and subscribers, she is devoted to creating authentic and engaging creative content on her YouTube channels, Lauren In Real Life and hot for food – which has over 25 million views! Her debut cookbook, Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes To Feed Your Face, hits shelves NEXT WEEK on February 27 and you guys…this is honestly one of my favourite conversations I’ve ever recorded. Lauren and I connect on such a deep level. I love talking to her, I love learning from her, she’s just an incredible woman.
By sharing our conversation, it’s my intention to help you connect to you to your highest and most beautiful self so you too can manifest THIS magic in your life.
