Questions for Melanie. Are you a Vegan, and how did you get your arms so toned?

After reposting the “trash the dress” photo shoot. I received a few similar questions from readers. I decided it was easiest to answer them in a post.

I’ve seen you write posts about being Vegan. How long have you been a vegan? Almost 20 years

Are you a strict vegan? Not by the most strict vegan standards. I wear leather, I eat honey, bee pollen, royal jelly etc. The only dairy I product I consume at home is raw butter sometimes. I eat as vegan as possible out at restaurants, but with a relaxed approach. I am sure I have consumed some chicken stock or hidden dairy over the years, especially when it comes to birthday cake!
