Nafsika Antypas is the host and creator of the world’s first vegan lifestyle TV series that focuses on a plant-based diet and vegan living. Nafsika has studied about olive oil and the Mediterranean diet in Greece through her father’s business, Pilaros Inc, a Mediterranean (and vegetarian) food importer, with which she has been involved for more than 20 years.
She created the TV show, Plant-Based by Nafsika which aired nationally in 2016, to change the world through food. This has not only sparked the interest of viewers around the globe but has planted some seeds helping veganism become more “mainstream,” a goal Nafsika conveys in her motto, “If You Plant It, It Will Grow.” The show launches its third season in A&E in 2018.
Through her website, www.Nafsika.ca, she helps people transition to a plant-based/vegan lifestyle while strengthening the vegan community. She offers menu plans, recipes, health tips and coaching.
Nafsika spends her spare time with her family, which includes her two young boys. She and her husband both cook plant-based meals at home and she’ll educate just about anyone who would listen about why it’s healthier to switch to a plant-based diet and why veganism is not just a diet but a way of life.
