Freya Dinshah

Freya Dinshah is president of the American Vegan Society and edits its magazine American Vegan. Freya's late husband, H. Jay Dinshah, founded the society in 1960 and taught Ahimsa as the principle of vegan living.
Freya grew up in England in a vegetarian family. She became vegan as a teen and so has many years experience with this way of living. Her two children, now adults, were raised vegan.

Freya's cookbook, The Vegan Kitchen, was first published in 1965 and is now in its 13th edition. Many of its recipes are also in a quantity card file (batched for 100 servings) produced by AVS and utilized by colleges and institutions across the country.

Freya has helped organize local and national events to encourage compassionate living.
