At the age of 95, Anne Evers Fraser has proved it’s never too late to go vegan.

The grandma who ate meat for the nearly a century was so shocked by pro-vegan documentary What The Health, she decided to switch to a plant-based diet.

Fraser has well and truly defied the perception that ‘old habits die hard’, and now is an outspoken activist on her Instagram page.

“I watched @wthfilm and went #plantbased 3 weeks before my 96th birthday!” she explains.

Now 97, she’s never looking back to a life of meat and dairy. She’s regularly seen wearing striking pro-vegan clothing, and sends powerful messages of compassion to her 28,000 followers.

“We do not need to consume animal products to survive and thrive,” she wrote.

“We have been sold a lie and now the truth is out. WE MUST STOP KILLING ANIMALS. It’s cruel and unnecessary. It’s also destroying the planet and making us sick.

“I didn’t wake up to the horrors of factory farming until my 96th year. I never even questioned consuming animal products, I just did it. But guess what? IT’S NEVER TO LATE TO MAKE A CHANGE. And let me tell you something else, you will feel so much better, I promise!”

She also promotes delicious vegan food on her page, writing: “In these last 2 years as a vegan I’ve eaten the best food of my life! This cream brûlée definitely makes the top ten!

“I never feel restricted on a vegan diet. I can eat as many fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes as I want and have yet to experience that stuffed and lethargic feeling after meals. I never have to restrict how much food I eat which is so refreshing after spending the majority of my life dieting.

“Oh how I wish I found this lifestyle out sooner! But better late than never.”
