Wondering who the model behind Vegan Model Eats is?! OK.
My name is Raelene Fulford. I’m a model in Toronto with Spot 6 Management. Most of my work is based right here in Toronto! I spend my days working out, attending castings, working or going to class. What I like about modelling is that it can truly be something different every single day. From magazine editorials, to walking in fashion week to online e-commerce. However, the modelling industry puts a lot of pressure on its models to be skinny and in perfect shape, all the time.
Before I became vegan I used to struggle with this a lot! How can I possibly be a size 2 without starving myself and being malnourished? By eating a plant-based diet with a focus on protein, as well as vitamins and antioxidants, I can truly say I have managed to achieve that! My relationship with food is better than ever before thanks to a vegan lifestyle. That is why I want to share my experience and knowledge with others who are in the same situation.
I don’t eat meat, seafood, dairy, eggs, or honey! I also don’t wear any animal products, meaning no fur, leather, feathers/down, wool, silk etc. and I avoid beauty products that use animal products or test on animals. Every day it gets easier and more convenient with the cruelty free industry being one of the fastest growing industries today! Living cruelty free has truly become a passion of mine and it makes me so happy to see more and more people becoming interested in it. Check out my blog for the recipes I love.

In a world that has become completely insane, I enjoy the brief moment of peace and sanity I feel while I cook, or sit down to a meal.
