Our guest Dom Thompson is a vegan athlete, wellness warrior, speaker, entrepreneur, medical field professional, dog-daddy, and so much more. In this episode we dive deep into his story of hitting rock bottom—going from dealing drugs on the streets of Chicago and landing in prison, to kneeling on the floor of his cell and choosing to do no harm, become vegetarian (and ultimately vegan), and change his life.
If you've been vegan for a while, you may have seen vegan athlete Dom Thompson's video that went viral a few months back. We were fortunate enough to talk with him about his journey from a tough upbringing, to being a part of the prison system, and coming out as a compassionate vegan athlete! We hope you’ll feel as inspired as we did after this one!
❤ Michelle + Toni
P.S. Our new book The Friendly Vegan Cookbook is now available on Amazon and wherever books are sold, and shows you how to make your favorite dishes vegan!
