My name is Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, fitness professional, public speaker, writer, consultant, kitchen wrangler, problem solver, host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio, and right-hand-woman to vegan Wunderkind Chef Jay Astafa. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo collector. I share my pad with a vegan human, a vegan dog, and two carnivorous cats… all rescued. I hail from Toronto, Canada but Brooklyn, NYC is home.

I hustle. Hard.

Try to keep up.

EP43: A Raw Conversation with Sarma!

What do ODB and Sarma have in common?  A TON of things, evidently… but mostly, they’re both bona fide HUSTLERS.  For real.  Some of the (many) things I admire about this fine lady are her commitment, her hard work, and her determination - and if you’ve listened to Red Radio Episode Forty Three I don’t think I have to tell you why.

…but if I do, it’s because I fancy myself somewhat of a hustler, too.  So dear Sarma is a woman after my very own heart.  And to top it all off, she saved my canine boyfriend Leon Quinn Trujillo Sterling Brit's precious life, and advocates for others to do the same.  Check out the handsome fella below.  Sorry, bitches - he's taken!

Cozy up with your favorite organic green juice and join Erin Red for a conversation with raw food ambassador Sarma in Red Radio Episode Forty Three!  The ladies get fresh, discussing the birth and growth of NYC’s premiere raw dining experience, Pure Food & Wine, Sarma’s evolution towards veganism, and Erin Red’s love affair with Sarma’s rescued puppy, Leon.  It’s an uncooked love fest!  Plus, Erin Red addresses the impending “Baconopalypse” and more in The Vegan Scoop.  Delicious!  Please consider supporting Red Radio by visiting and clicking the DONATE button, and subscribe to Red Radio on iTunes today!  If you love what you hear, leave a glowing review, or drop Erin Red a line at  You can also read her blog at, and find her on Facebook and Twitter @erinred.
