Leva hails from the Land Down Under (Melbourne, Australia). She is a nutritionist. She’s also kind of vegetarian. Kind of, in that on the day she decided to become vegetarian she ate a huge steak. When people ask Leva nutrition questions she usually buckles and says there’s no right answer, that food and nutrition are part of a complex interplay of science, biology, sociology, and ecology. And that’s not wrong, but it’s a cop out. A cop out she won’t be surrendering to anymore. She’s becoming increasingly passionate about plant-based diets, and food industry practices often offend her. The disparity in food consumption that she has seen between countries inhabiting the same planet boggles her, and the inhumanity with which animals in the food chain are treated makes her wonder about those allowing it. Her driving philosophy is that truth is one and indivisible; that while there are areas in life that are grey, there are many more areas that are clear, if we just choose to see.
