With the health and wellness boom the U.S. has experienced in the last decade or two, many people are searching for a diet or lifestyle change that best suits them. Ain’t I Latina? tapped health and wellness expert, entrepreneur and celebrity fitness coach on ABC’s My Diet Is Better Than Yours Jovanka Ciares to discuss her road to veganism, the benefits of a plant-based diet and how she landed on national television.

It wouldn’t be an Ain’t I Latina? conversation if we didn’t discuss identity. We asked Ciares, who is from Puerto Rico, how she identifies.

“Not until I came to the United States did I start to realize that there was a difference between Latinos of a different color,” says Ciares. “That’s when people probably started to notice there’s such [a] thing as Afro-Latino, or white Latinos…at the end of the day, I’ve always considered myself a Caribbean, a Latina, and a person of African descent.”

Naturally our conversation flowed to discussing a vegan diet, and we find out that while Ciares thoroughly enjoys her vegan lifestyle, she misses chuletas. I mean, can you blame her?!

Those of you in the tri-state area, you’re in for a treat! The celebrity fitness coach will be hosting Wellness Smackdown Live on February 27 in NYC.
