Ellen Jaffe Jones Author of: Eat Vegan on $4 a Day

Ellen Jaffe Jones was a recent guest speaker at the McDougall Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, CA.

Ellen began a plant-based diet 32 years ago after she almost died of a colon blockage. She recently wrote Eat Vegan on $4 a Day after watching too many stories saying eating healthfully on a budget was impossible. She has taught cooking classes for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Ellen is currently 3rd in running in Florida in the 200, 400 and 1500 meters, 4th in the 100 meters, and credits her running success to a vegan diet. Her newest book, Kitchen Divided-Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households was born after recognition of how many “mixed marriages” exist in new and long-term vegan relationships. She calls herself the “Veg Coach” and “The Broccoli Rep.”
