My name is Annie, but this, like much in life, is not a hard-fast rule. My friends call me Annabelle or Anniebelle, my family calls me Ann, and my brother calls me Anna Banana. I am currently a nutritional anthropology graduate student moving out of a PhD program and back to school for a degree in dietetics. Passionate about vegan food, weightlifting, running, and yoga as the foundations of a life-long journey towards strength, vitality, and happiness. I blog about my thoughts, reflections, and practices at vegangrip.com. Stop by and begin your own journey towards strength with me!
