About Leslie Naylor

Leslie Naylor is an entrepreneur, a breast cancer survivor, and a champion for animals.

10 years ago, Leslie Naylor walked away from a 20-year marriage to start a new life with her daughter. They left their home town in Atlanta and moved to Knoxville with nothing more than what was packed in her car to start a fresh life. Leslie and her daughter leaned on each other for survival and support. Eventually, with the help of a cow named Dudley, Leslie learned how to trust again, started a successful vegan restaurant, and now, the 4Them Sanctuary.

Roving Vegans Adventure:

On this week's Roving Vegans Adventure, we talked about our plans to to reset our body and go into 2019 with the goal of being our healthiest, happiest selves. We will start with two days of a "one-meal-a-day" fasting, followed by two days of water only fast, and concluding with 21 days of eating only life sustaining whole-food plant based meals. We'll be documenting our journey on our facebook page and we would love for you to join our journey.  We could definitely use some cheering on. 

If you're curious to learn more about the benefits of fasting, check out this lecture from Nobel Laureate in Physiology of Medicine, Yoshinori Ohsumi or search "Autophagy" on Google.
