DELISH! This plant-based paradise offers gorgeous, mouth-watering meals! Come get your favorite Thai dish veganized at Vegan Thyme in Newbury Park, California. It’s time for LunchBreakLIVE with Vegan Thyme‘s incredible animal rights activist Zafir Molina and Cafè co-owner Gip!

This lettuce wrap looks dreamy. Yum!

Zafir was inspired to transition to a vegan lifestyle by Dr. Melanie Joy’s book, Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear CowsZafir realized could no longer justify eating one animal and not the other, so she decided not to eat animals at all. Now, Zafir is an avid active animal rights activist. She has organized several Cubes of Truth with the group Anonymous for the Voiceless. She also regularly attends activism events with Direct Action Everywhere and The Save Movement. On top of all of this, she is a director and dancer at ZAZADance Art and Awareness. This is one busy woman! She explains her motivation is to raise awareness of the abuses animals experience at the hands of humanity. 

Zafir uses every bit of her passion when she speaks up for animal rights.

Gip brings out some appetizing drunken noodles as she explains how Vegan Thyme came into existence. When Gip moved to the area, there weren’t very many vegan options. She decided since she wanted to open a vegan restaurant because she was in the process of transitioning to veganism. She introduced the idea to her aunt and they decided, “Why not?” Now, they have this wonderful vegan restaurant for all to enjoy!

Zafir and Paige are all smiles after trying the tasty food at this restaurant!
