About the Author
SHERRA AGUIRRE, author of Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease, founded and led a successful business for three decades, winning national awards for entrepreneurship, innovation, and service excellence. She sold the company in 2016 to focus on her passion for healthy diet and lifestyle. Now in her seventies, Aguirre describes herself as high energy, in better overall health, and in many ways more fit than in her thirties or forties. She has practiced meditation and yoga daily for more than twenty-five years, and for many years has researched and read extensively about diet and lifestyle as the most important factors for achieving and maintaining good health. By adopting a whole plant-based diet, she improved overall heart health and eliminated symptoms of hypertension despite a significant family history of heart attack, stroke, and high blood pressure. She is passionate about empowering others to maintain vibrancy and good health throughout their lifetimes.
As a health enthusiast, environmentalist, and food justice advocate, Aguirre writes about the healing qualities of compassion, simplicity and gratitude. She draws attention to the ripple effect vegan eating can have on individuals, families, and communities. Sherra is married with two daughters--Tembi Locke, actor, speaker, screenwriter, and New York Times best-selling author; and Attica Locke, multiple award-winning novelist, New York Times best-selling author and screen writer/producer.
