In the St. Louis area, most people know Caryn Dugan as STL Veg Girl, but now she will be famous for something else.

Today, the country will no longer be without a fully plant-based nutrition and culinary education center because of Caryn's work and dedication.  The Center for Plant-based Living is officially open and located at 131 West Jefferson Avenue in Kirkwood.  This is a place you can go to learn more about living a plant-based life, whether you want to go 100% vegan or just adopt a few meatless meals to your weekly dinner recipes. 

Caryn's new center will host weekly cooking classes and educational seminars.  

From Caryn's website:

In 2011, the same year I founded STL Veg Girl, I had a crazy thought, that someday there should be one place, a building, a center where you could learn about what a plant-based diet is, how and why that might be a good thing in your life and where you can find continual: resources, education, inspiration, motivation and support. In 2017, still no such place existed, so I started saving. In early 2019 the perfect little space opened in downtown Kirkwood (A bustling neighborhood  in the middle of  St. Louis, MO) and I grabbed it. 

I'm intrigued by Caryn and all she is doing, so I decided to reach out and see if she would let me take a tour of The Center For Plant-Based Living and she graciously said YES!  She even let me do some cooking (and if you know anything about me, that was a brave move on her part!).
