Meet Erin Wells

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erin Wells Wells of  “That Chocolate Vegan”.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I’ve been plant-based for going on three years now, and the journey has been nothing but amazing. I changed my eating habits after binging on meat and dairy on a vacation in Chicago. On the plane going back home, I didn’t feel well and figured it would pass like usual( this wasn’t the first time I was queasy after eating meat and dairy).

I got back to Atlanta and laid off animal products for a week and noticed how much better I felt and that I was eating just fine without them( I was already into cooking my own meals).

Six months later, I was fully into the vegan diet, and after the general public’s “concern” of what I was eating, I decided to start my journey into YouTube (Jan 2017). I didn’t go in thinking anything would come of it, but to date, I have monetized my videos, met fans, gotten business offers, sponsorships, and catering opportunities.

My mission has changed from showing what I eat to showing you what you could eat and love on a plant-based diet; it’s not only saving the animals it can save the planet.

Please tell us about your art.
I am a vegan chef and youtube influencer; I enjoy showing omnivores that the vegan diet is not a punishment and can be healthy and delicious! I specialize in taking classic comfort meals and making them vegan. I want to break the health problems of our generation.

Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
In any field, you will spend money to make money, and I wish I took the leap into business sooner

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I do several events around ATL, and I am available for catering, meal prep, and soon, private classes on cooking plant-based with Soul. People can support by subscribing to my youtube channel “That Chocolate Vegan” and following me on social media @ThatChocolateVegan (Facebook and Instagram).
