 My name is Eleanor Santo Domingo and this is my first time volunteering for New Jersey VegFest.  I’m so excited! I’m a mom of 2 teenagers, and am finally finding some time for myself by getting back to my passion for all things food, and more recently, nutrition and health. I’m a professionally trained chef with a focus on events and recipe writing, and am the co-founder of a now defunct (boo hoo!) vegan snack called Batter Junkies. I have an insatiable appetite for food documentaries, nutrition books and cookbooks of all kinds, and have recently started going more plant-based as a better way to live, and fuel my body for running races.  While in the process of becoming 100% plant-based, I have dragged some friends and family members with me. (Hopefully they’ll thank me later.) I can’t wait to share with them everything I learn at NJ VegFest so we can all move towards a more healthful, whole food, plant-based lifestyle together! See you on October 7th!
