The Girl Behind the Goat

KD Angle-Traegner (she/her)

Founder & Creator

Hi. I’m KD Angle-Traegner, and I run Your Daily Vegan. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I started this website in 2009 with one goal: To bring the vegan evolution to the masses. I went vegan for the animals more than fifteen years ago.

Personal motto: I can’t save every life, so I save every life that I can.

I’ve spent the last 23+ years with my vegan wife, whom I married at Lasa Animal Sanctuary. Inspired by incredible life-saving work that animal sanctuaries do, I decided to start one of my own; Four Urban Paws Sanctuary.

Something people rarely believe about me is that I’ve never liked dairy-based cheese, especially melted, even as a child. The ideal temperature is a breezy 79 degrees, and the perfect place is the beach.

Reggae, always and forever.

I’m a second-generation philatelist and bibliophile here, as well as a hardcore kombucha lover who also loves hiking, air hockey, and Bollywood movies (in that order).

Self-proclaimed badass and unofficial championess of all animals. Unapologetically vegan. >> Read my work.

Over the past eleven years, I have written more than 100 vegan living guides and over 1,000 editorials, and recipes with the ethical vegan spin, all delivered to your desktop, mobile, or tablet. Sharing veganism with people is my passion.
