This season’s green celebrity is this incredible person, who is as vegan as vegan could be! Nafsika Antypas is a “Conscious” celebrity and innovator, a TV Host & Producer, and “The Compassionate Lifestyle Coach”. Well, she has her own TV show, Plant-Based By Nafsika. It is the world’s first vegan lifestyle series on mainstream television, airing on the A&E Network to 70 million households. She rightly prophecies, “The vegan movement is getting so big that eventually, the non-vegans will become the minority!” And we have the millennials who are the most compassionate generation to date, who are at the forefront of social activism. She takes the inspiration from anyone who dedicates their lives or a good portion of it in raising awareness and advocating compassion for others and that definitely includes animals too.
She blogs a lot about tips on keeping our
environment clean and healthy; and it’s a
topic she would be discussing now in Season 3.
One big change she has made this year is that she is encouraging all the viewers to switch away from plastic to biodegradable alternatives. For example, you can switch plastic straws to stainless steel straws and you can switch plastic zip lock bags to reusable or fabric bags. A change like this is small and simple but will have a huge impact on the environment.
The vegan TV series is her brain child and it has gained much recognition on mainstream TV. It’s where she is really able to reach millions of people and spread her message about health, proper diet and compassion. And that has given birth to her other projects that she’s currently working on such as the Health Coaching and the launch of her new vegan cheese line launching this Fall!
In 2017, Nafsika became a certified Health & Lifestyle Coach helping people make the “Plant-Based Switch” to a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle. Because, as Nafsika attests, “You can’t be a compassionate person if you’re not living a compassionate lifestyle”.
Here is a quick tip to the readers from Nafsika: “I guess it would be to always stay positive and spread veganism in a positive way. The hardest part about going vegan isn’t switching from meat to tofu; it’s actually the social gatherings. So instead of getting into an ethics battle with non-vegan friends and family, try discussing how much you enjoy being vegan and how it makes you feel healthy and happy. Let people see all the good in veganism by bringing positivity to the subject and they’ll come around on their own.”
