About The Author
After experiencing life-changing results by making simple changes, Assile Beydoun wanted to share her story to help others understand the importance of going vegan, physically, mentally, and spiritually. After she received a certification in plant-based nutrition from Cornell’s Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, she founded the Dubai Vegan Community, a platform that helps people on their journeys by spreading awareness about the benefits of a plant-based diet, advocating the animal rights movement, promoting sustainable food choices, and breaking stereotypes about veganism. In addition to being the sustainability communications director of a Fortune 500 company, Assile also cofounded Spread the Raw, a plant-based snacks distribution company; Wholesome Retreats, for spiritual and wellness retreats; and Cold Pressed, a juice detox program.

About the Initiative
All proceeds of Lettuce Live Better (book sales, donations and coaching sessions) will be used to build an animal shelter. The shelter will be a sanctuary that promises to take in and care for any animals that have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and to keep them for life. With every contribution you make, you will be making a difference.
