Marcy Schveibinz became interested in food and nutrition when growing up in Buffalo, NY with her Dad who became a “health nut,” and started eating “whole wheat bagels” which weren’t easy to get in the ’70s! Marcy has a degree in nutrition from Buffalo State College. She is a national board certified health and wellness coach and did her training through the Mayo clinic. She has two vegan children.
Vegetarianism is not eating meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who also don’t eat dairy, eggs, or other animal products.
In Genesis 1:29, God said, “Behold, I have given you every seed bearing herb, which is upon the surface of the entire earth, and every tree that has seed bearing fruit; it will be yours for food.
