Still, living the veggie life can be challenging, especially in a city like Atlanta where there are fewer vegetable-centric restaurants and many people just don't know how to prepare this type of food at home.
With those challenges in mind, meet Jamila Crawford. She's the chef and owner of Earthcandy Gourmet Vegan Cuisine, a catering and personal chef company that's served up Latin-, Asian-, Caribbean-, Indian-, and African-inspired vittles to celebs like Erykah Badu, Dave Chappelle, Andre 3000, and more. Crawford - who also works as a fashion stylist, singer, blogger, and host of the Web TV series "Earthcandy* Food.Fashion.Flyness" - is one of a growing group of local culinary artists who make it their business to deliver healthy and tasty vegan meals to diners in the comfort of their own homes.
Creative Loafing recently caught up with Crawford to chat about her culinary endeavors, transforming eating habits, and more.
