In celebration of my 30th Birthday, I am blessed to debut @aroundtheworldapron. Around The World Apron began in February 2018 after prayer and spending some much needed time with God to help me change my lifestyle.
My grandmother Mary Penn is a breast cancer survivor and with genetics and lifestyle I wanted to avoid the inevitable. I told my mom, Valerie Penn Forte' about my decision to go cold turkey to a plant based diet. She was my number one supporter. She tried my dishes and gave her honest opinion. I wanted to take dishes that we loved and make them into a vegan-friendly version. God has truly blessed me to lose over 50 lbs with my lifestyle change and now it is time for me to bless others.
My cook book is dedicated to my late twin sister Amelia Forte'.
