Meet Shakayla, Our Arlington City Leader
Being from in the midwest surrounded by soul food, cattle, and corn, Shakayla wasn’t exactly raised around the healthiest foods. In 2018 she decided to switch to a plant-based diet to maintain her health and inspire others to do the same. You can find Restaurant Reviews from all over the World, reviews of the latest & greatest plant-based products, and recipe cards featuring her delicious creations on her website sweetgreensvegan.com. We love having this beautiful light shine all of her knowledge and passion for plant-based food as our Arlington City Leader!
