Erin Smith
Blog: Girl Gone Veggie
About: Erin grew up living what she would consider the typical American lifestyle. She used to eat whatever she wanted to eat whenever she wanted to eat it. Erin loved a good home cooked meal but fast food was definitely her friend. And while she Irish danced since she was five she never made it a point to make exercise a part of her daily routine. This affected how she felt about herself, her energy levels, and how the clothes she loved to wear so much fit on her body. She recently made a vow to live the healthy life she knows she can, to make her body strong, to feed it right. Erin recently stopped eating meat and recently fell in love with making her body break a sweat. This blog is dedicated to her journey.
