Anna Pippus, author of “The Vegan Family Cookbook” and Easy Animal-Free

It’s November and that means it’s World Vegan Month! For our feature interview, we welcome back a familiar guest to Animal Voices who embodies the joy of being vegan via her love for animals, her animal activism, and her long-time vegan lifestyle. Our guest is animal advocacy lawyer, food Instagrammer and now cookbook author Anna Pippus.

“The Vegan Family Cookbook: Simple, Balanced Cooking for Real Life”, which just came out last week, is a culinary toolkit of more than 100 recipes to get affordable, plant-based family meals on the table—in no time flat.

You may also know Anna as the voice behind Easy Animal-Free, a popular multi-platform project dedicated to helping people eat more plants. Anna is known for her casual, creative, and realistic approach to healthy and flavourful vegan cooking. She has also been named one of Canada’s most influential vegans, and resides in Vancouver with her husband Arden and two young children, Harlan and Alister.
