I’m Dynise. I’m a running addict and the author of 3 vegan cookbooks. Healthy, environmentally friendly living makes me happy, as does traveling, being outside, and knitting.  I live happily and minimally in a loft in Philadelphia with my kitties, all former strays.

Why Vanilla and Zag?

Vanilla. Although I live and eat adventurously, I think humans’ ability to appreciate the exotic is best rooted in an ability to first appreciate simple flavors and pleasures. Vanilla is my favorite flavor.

Zag. All my life, I have zagged when others zigged. It’s just how I roll.
