It’s not easy to define Diego, as he is a man of many talents! With a background in photography and arts, Diego’s passions are many, among them, cooking has always come naturally to him. After his visit to the Doctor back in 2011, Diego was alarmed by how threatened his health was, and most of it because of his diet and lifestyle. He was diagnosed with high cholesterol, pre-diabetic, over weight, and overall a mess for a 30 year old. Ever since that day, Diego began his own journey to be more conscious of what he was putting on his plate. Since he always had a deep love for animals, and spend a lot of his time rescuing and volunteering for them, it was an easy transition to make into the vegan world, as he became 100% plant based. He also graduated from a Cornel University for Plant Based Nutrition Program by T Collin Campbell in 2012. His love for food and animals transitioned to an even deeper love for cooking plant based, and for spreading the awareness to his friends and family, changing many of their lives as well. When he was approached to join Love Life Wellness Center and create their menu for the Cafe, he put a stop to his career in the art business to be on board of such an awesome project where he could spread his passion and knowledge for clean and delicious foods to the community. If you ever catch him at the Cafe, he is always happy to share his knowledge with anyone who is willing to learn. Today, Diego also handles his own Art business called Tosoni Fine Arts, along with the on going creations of Love Life Cafe. Diego’s love for art can also be seen at Love Life’s walls, some of them being his own pieces.
