Chef Jason Wyrick is the executive chef of The Vegan Taste, the author of Vegan Tacos: Authentic and Inspired Recipes for Mexico’s Favorite Street Food, and co-author of New York Times Bestseller 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart. In 2001, Jason was diagnosed with diabetes in his mid-20s and was told he would have to be on medication for the rest of his life. Instead, Jason became vegan, reversed his diabetes in eight months, and lost more than 100 pounds over the course of two years. Along the way, he learned about factory farming, cementing his decision to become vegan. He also learned that the food had to be outstanding, or no one was going to eat it! He then left his job as the director of marketing for a computer company in order to become a chef and help others learn how to eat healthfully, compassionately, and well.
