According to her website, Reyes says since 2011 she’s fallen in love with “all things vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, gluten-free, and all-natural… Before I went vegan I was weighed down by pressure to count calories, restrict myself from food for multiple days, and constantly judge and belittle myself for not being as skinny or petite as my peers.”
Vegan food heals the body today for tomorrow.

Meals made by Gabrielle Reyes, a.k.a., One Great Vegan offer foodies and Vegan skeptics a chance to try something different and experience food possibilities beyond the predictable.
