Tambra Riddle

Tambra has been a vegetarian for over 16 years, 7 of which she has been vegan.  She is a certified Doctor of Naturopathy with a Master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition.  Participating in a plant-based diet is not only a fulfilling lifestyle choice, but a path that she says makes her feel bright, uplifted, energetic and healthy.  Along with blogging for her own site, veggieedge.com, Tambra is about to publish her first book, My Teenage Rejection of Death Products which, through her personal experiences, encourages teens and twenty-somethings to be aware of veganism’s alluring fascination, potential pitfalls, and ways to successfully reap the rewards of an animal-free lifestyle.  She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband Rob and their dog Shadow.
