It is never too late to start eating plant-based, and 96-year-old Anne Fraser is living proof!

After watching the documentary What the Health? with her granddaughter and realizing how broken the animal agriculture system is, Anne wanted to do her part to make a change. On top of this, she was diagnosed with AFib (irregular heartbeat), prescribed medicine made her legs “feel like lead,” and traditional methods of treatment were deemed too risky for someone her age. But, after switching to a plant-based diet, Anne’s AFib is now no more!

Anne stays active and leads a chair yoga class every Monday at her retirement home. She says, “I’ve always ended all my classes with the meta prayer, ‘May all beings be happy and free’ and after becoming vegan, and learning how inhumane and cruel our animal agriculture system is, I realized that I wasn’t doing my part. I was praying for all animals to be happy and free but not practicing it by still consuming animal products. Now when I say that prayer it has a deeper meaning to me.”

Anne credits her granddaughter for helping her make the change to a plant-based diet, a choice she made just three weeks before her 96th birthday. 

 

Here Anne gives a sneak peak into a project she is working on to encourage everyone, especially senior citizens, to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

Anne loves donning vegan-themed t-shirts and says they are great conversation starters in her retirement community where her peers are not too familiar with veganism.

Anne says it can be somewhat of a challenge changing the old habits of her peers, but she says she “tricks” them into eating vegan by making yummy plant-based treats like breakfast cookies. She has already convinced her bestie to make the switch too!

Anne is a beautiful example of how compassion and a plant-based diet can feed  your body and mind and improve both spiritual and physical health. Way to go Anne!

Maybe you should learn to write English correctly before you wish death on someone you don't even know.

Djook, you have a lot of personal work to do. I hope you are able to remove the hate you feel.

Maybe she didn't realise the torture. I give her credit for doing it now, rather than saying " pffft. I am too old to change and it won'tmake a difference anyhow." Compassion should overflow not be restricted to those who believe only as you do. And PS, Karma happens to all of us.

Why would anyone bother to say anything negative about this wise and compassionate woman? Good for her for making a healthy change and for promoting a compassionate life. ❤
