Skater Launches Veg Website

Former figure skater Rebecca Gilbert has launched a new plant-based online community.

After finding that a vegan diet dramatically improved her health, former competitive figure skater Rebecca Gilbert of Pittsburgh, PA, has launched a new online community focused on plant-based living. Titled Yummy Plants, the website features cruelty-free recipes, a database of vegan-friendly restaurants, nutritional information, user forms, and even an “Experts Corner” with interviews of esteemed plant-based health experts like Neal Barnard, MD and Joel Fuhrman, MD. The website also caters to special dietary requirements by including yeast-free and gluten-free recipes. In her bio on the website, Gilbert says that she was inspired to create Yummy Plants after her chronic joint pain disappeared following her switch to a plant-based diet.
