Nafsika Antypas is a TV host, producer, activist and entrepreneur. She founded the non-profit, People Against Violence in 2014, helping victims of violence seek guidance and assistance with its 24-hour hotline, monitored by certified counselors. But being a passionate vegan, Nafsika felt that the only way to truly help make the world a more compassionate place is to help people go vegan. So, in late 2015, Nafsika put together a unique show that within 6 months would become the first vegan lifestyle series to ever hit mainstream television, reaching 70 million households.
The TV series, Plant-Based By Nafsika focuses on a plant-based diet and vegan living, a concept Nafsika hoped would help change the world through food. This has not only sparked the interest of viewers around the globe but has "planted seeds" helping veganism become more mainstream, a goal Nafsika conveys in her motto, "If You Plant It, It Will Grow.
In 2017, Nafsika became a certified Health & Lifestyle Coach, helping people make the "Plant-Based Switch" to a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle. Because, as Nafsika attests, "You can't be a compassionate person if you're not living a compassionate lifestyle."
But there was one very important obstacle stopping people from going vegan, and that was giving up their beloved cheese. So by 2018, Nafsika founded the hottest new vegan "cheese" in town, Nafsika's Garden, which became available at major retailers across Canada. By late 2019, Nafsika's Garden hit the U.S markets and continues to grow internationally.
Nafsika has appeared on numerous television and radio shows across the globe, and has contributed her writing as well as been interviewed by online publications such as PETA, VegNews, EmpowHER, Insider, Health Digest and more.
