Episode 114: “Lucia’s Vegan Lifestyle” with Lucia Grillo

In this episode of the Vedge Your Best podcast, I’m pleased to visit with actress, writer, and producer Lucia Grillo. Lucia is the creator of the Amazon Live show, Lucia’s Vegan Lifestyle. Lucia grew up in New York with Italian immigrant parents who had been farmers in rural southern Italy. She became a vegetarian at the age of 12 and later adopted a vegan lifestyle. Among other topics, we discuss her Italian heritage, her journey to veganism, and how being vegan has influenced her professional life. 



In her professional life, Lucia is involved in various projects, including developing a feature film and a TV series. On her show, Lucia’s Vegan Lifestyle, she helps viewers find vegan items–ranging from home goods to makeup to food–on Amazon.

Lucia also discusses her experience with breast cancer and how it affected her vegan lifestyle. She emphasizes the joy and fulfillment she finds in being vegan and advocates for compassion towards all beings. She encourages listeners to approach the holidays with a mindset of giving and sharing, suggesting that they can bring vegan dishes to holiday gatherings and choose vegan gifts for loved ones.
