Come Sail Away – On a Vegan Cruise Featuring Doctors Campbell, Esselstyn, Barnard and More!!!on January 20, 2013 at 3:00 am
To say that we’re looking forward to this year’s cruise is a massive understatement: our experience two years ago (we couldn’t attend last year because Miles’s due date was too close) literally changed our lives. Derek was inspired to begin competing as a bodybuilder and I was inspired to leave my successful corporate career as an actuary to start our online vegan personal training business which soon expanded to include a local studio as well. Hanging out with our friend Robert Cheeke who, as many of you know, is a motivational powerhouse, as well as hearing Dr. Campbell speak, hearing former NBA star John Salley talk about his conversion to a vegan diet, meeting so many different people from all over who are out there changing the world in ways large and small…couldn’t help but inspire us. Derek was especially excited when we sat down to dinner with a couple who run a health food store in Ireland and they told us that you can apparently surf there and they have excellent beaches – who knew?!
Anyway, we wish everyone could take this cruise (in case you’re wondering, no – we don’t get anything for endorsing it!), especially those on the fence about a plant-based diet…hearing Dr. Campbell speak and feasting on gourmet vegan food all week will convince you!

There are also cooking classes, exercise classes (Robert Cheeke is teaching one), vegan ice cream socials, shore excursions and all kinds of other stuff including a guest talent show that Derek and I are planning on performing in this year (should be…interesting).
