In 1994 Tamekia & Corey first met and briefly started a romance that they would return to 22 years later. In 1996 Corey gave up meat, and by the time he and Tamekia rekindled their relationship 22 years later, Corey had been a meat-free athlete for more than 20 years. With Corey having transitioned from Vegetarian to Vegan and then Raw Vegan just weeks prior to the two reconnecting, one of the bonding elements of their love has always been Tamekia's willingness and desire to support and encourage Corey's dietary and health and fitness choices. So, despite not being a vegan or vegetarian; Tamekia has been EATING MORE PLANTS with Corey since day one!
During the resurgence of their relationship Corey became heavily involved in the Vegan community and even ran a Vegan social network. As he began introducing Tamekia to the Vegan community it became painfully evident that the relationship between non meat eaters and meat eaters left much to be desired. While some Vegans tended to be aggressively cruel and disrespectful to meat eaters, others were desperately seeking advice on how to coexist with their meat eating friends and family. Having mastered that aspect of their relationship; Tamekia and Corey started EAT MORE PLANTS to achieve the following goals:
Educate all people on the health benefits of continuing to implement more plants into their diet whether they are trying to give up meat or just add more fruits and vegetables to their existing diets
Improve the relationship between meat eaters and non meat eaters
Share the many beautiful and delicious plant-based meals and recipes they encounter
Provide support and assistance to vegans and vegetarians who are in relationships with meat eaters
