ALL cookbooks, not just vegetarian or vegan! It’s topping Amazon’s bestsellers in not only the vegan and vegetarian categories, but in the paleo category as well. “Veg News,” the largest US vegan magazine,…

It’s been a crazy week. Just back from the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival where I spoke both days. I met SO many cool peeps. All the selfies and other pix are on my facebook pages. But here’s my fav: I’ll try and do a whole separate blog on the festival soon. Lotsa fun pix and so…

By Ellen Jaffe Jones | Comments Off on “Paleo Vegan” Goes to Press, Dumped for Fishing Column, 65th 5K Race Award, Cooking Classes

At the checkout line, a woman recognizes me and says, “It was your food and fitness column that made me go vegan! You’re the columnist from the Anna Maria Island Sun!” “No more,” I laughed. “They replaced me with a fishing column.” You can find my “Feasting on Fitness” column in the sports section of the…

Perspective after Running A Vegan Marathon “Just” on Plants

By Ellen Jaffe Jones | Comments Off on Perspective after Running A Vegan Marathon “Just” on Plants

When we moved to Florida 10 years ago, I began walking, then increasing the walk to run ratio until I was running 30 minutes solid. It took a year of training on my own before I had enough guts to show up at a running club training run. I ran alone (and still do) on…

By Ellen Jaffe Jones | Comments Off on A Tale of Two Florida Running Cities from the Miami Book Fair: Miami vs. Anna Maria Island

The media love to have fun with Florida and all of it’s crazy characters. But that’s what happens when you get to be large and popular. There will be the share of nut cases and all kinds of folks the media loves to squander headlines on. I was very lucky to be the only author…
