MasterChef New Zealand Winner Aaron Brunet Goes Vegan
Aaron Brunet, who won the fourth season of MasterChef New Zealand, was recently featured in an article in PressReader, which focused on his newfound “vegan eco warrior” lifestyle.
In the interview, it is revealed that Brunet works at the Waitakere Refuse and Recycling Centre in Auckland, and that he changed his lifestyle after asking himself how he could “live in this crazy modern world” in a sensible way. Brunet stated:
“I think it’s really easy for us to get overwhelmed and not feel like we can do anything – that the problems are too big…I felt like that for a long time but then I started to think no, there are things I can do, that I feel really good about, that make life feel great. So going vegan, to me, is a choice that makes a dramatic difference.”
According to the article, “workshops, talks and demonstrations are definitely in the works” for the 2013 winner and cookbook author and it is noted that Brunet still “thinks about food in that same intense, next-level and highly creative way,” now just focusing on “all things plant-based, good for the body and mind and for the environment.”
