We welcome Samantha and Chris Beeney from Rochester, New York as our next participants in the Ghost-Free Journey. They have been married for 5 1/2 years – we have never had a couple take the Journey together and we are very excited about this.
Samantha has been a vegetarian off and on since she was 16 and she became a vegan in April of 2012. Chris became a vegetarian in the fall of 2006 and has been vegan since this past September. Like most new vegans, they have a number of issues that they are still learning about. In their own words “We would like to do this Ghost Free Journey for a lot of reasons. Firstly,the GFJ seems like a great source of support and information as we are still new to being vegan. Secondly, we feel that every journey that is completed brings more awareness to the Ghost-Free way to the world as a whole. Thirdly, I know that in Rochester it is sometimes a struggle as the vegan life is not one that people understand as well as they should”.
We are starting Day1 with a focus on vegan comfort/convenience foods. Both Samantha and Chris are often on the go and encounter difficulties when they are craving something like a cupcake or looking for quick/inexpensive food on the go.
Samantha and Chris – could you tell us a bit about what you have been doing so far when you have been in these situations? This has been a common issue for many people. We’re looking forward to exploring this with you and would love to have others join in, too.

The opinions we express as GFJ Coaches are ours personally. We are not professional health practitioners. Neither are we treating a specific health care issue. That means we are not offering advice on health-care problems. If you are experiencing a health-care problem, it is important to seek the advice of a health professional. However we are experienced, practicing vegans and we look forward to coaching you on your journey.
