Plant Shift

love ♥ living ♥ vegan

Following a plant-based or vegan lifestyle, is about food, drink, clothes, shoes, body treatments, hair products and more. 

It's a conscious decision to think, walk and possibly, talk a better lifestyle. 

I support individuals who are thinking about making the shift, as well as, those who have already begun their plant-based journey.

As an ambassador of veganism, Heena helps people facilitate the shift to a plant-based diet and lifestyle. Having been a vegan for almost 10 years and a vegetarian for decades before that, Heena has lived the experiences and messages that she shares.

In her enthusiastic and direct style of presenting, Heena will bring compassion and practical insight to the topic of going vegan and staying vegan. In her talks, she covers diet and the various elements of a vegan lifestyle, such as, travel, buying gifts, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics and more. 

A qualified school teacher, and Nutrition Practitioner, Heena will:-

  • help you bust myths, such as, "You can't get what you need from a vegan diet!"

  • address common obstacles like "My family complain that it's too hard to cater for me"

  • help make the shift smooth and enjoyable by sharing the lessons she's learned and tips she's accumulated since 2008

Heena's talks illustrate how easy it is to not just eat vegan, but live a vegan lifestyle. 


“I recently had the pleasure of attending one of Heena’s talks, full of helpful tips on living a happy, healthy and fulfilling vegan lifestyle. Heena’s very friendly and engaging style made the whole session a very enjoyable experience too.”
— Mahersh Shah, attendee of the London Vegan Monthly Meeting, January 2018

Previous talks 

Heena has previously spoken at:

  • Community organisations including the Shree Digambar Jain Association, the Jain Network and the Vanik Council

  • Wellbeing charity groups, such as, the EKTA South Asian group which is part of MIND in Harrow

  • Vegan meetup groups like the London Vegan Monthly Meetings

  • Health food and product retailers such as Natural Health Options

Emily Danby, Bridging Cultures Co-ordinator, Mind in Harrow who organised for Heena to speak to the EKTA group about nutrition and wellbeing.

Heena’s talk made me realise that following a vegan’s way of life is not as difficult or restricted as I thought it was and that making small changes can lead to a healthier way of living and help the environment at the same time. I was not aware that a lot vegan products are readily available and some are ‘vegan by accident’. Heena gave useful tips on what to look out for when buying not only food but even clothes, shoes, cosmetics etc. A truly inspiring talk, encouraging me to make these easy changes for a better lifestyle.
— Parul Shah, attendee of the talk hosted by Natural Health Options, Stanmore on World Vegan Day 2017

What would you like to invite Heena to speak about?


Heena is really passionate about veganism. Her talk was simple and easy for the audience to understand, whilst carrying powerful messages. Her slides were very informative and included pictures that made us aware how our leather, wool, fur and down feathers are sourced. This made a big impact on me, and seeing the audience’s reaction, I am sure they experienced the same. Heena not only addressed the problem but the solution too. She listed a lot of local retailers where we can buy vegan products and whilst paying so much less, they will serve similar or even better purposes.
A very well presented and simple to understand talk by all ages. Highly recommend her to do more of these!
