Growing up in her mother's kitchen, Sharon Wright learned to cook what she believed was healthy food. But for years, she struggled with various health problems. After witnessing her father's battle with cancer, Sharon began extensively researching the causes of diseases, and discovered a wealth of information about how one's diet affects one's body. She adopted a macrobiotic diet, but found that most of her health issues persisted, and came to the conclusion that she should commit to a 100% raw and vegan diet.
With her new diet, she experienced significant weight loss, an increase in energy and mental clarity. To share her vision of "real food" with others, Wright partnered with Scott Middleton and Danny Hutto. The result was Good Life Café. There, she helms a menu of unprocessed plants foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees, creating vibrant dishes with ingredients such as cashew nacho cheese, walnut meat, and zucchini noodles.

Though the menu at Lambsbread Vegan Cafe may appear to be the same as at any soul food place, things aren't what they seem. That's because the chefs don't use any animal products when they make their dishes. They use tempeh, seitan, and vegetables to create options such as the Spare No ribs, mock BLT, and tempeh Reuben. These come paired with complementary sides, such as the okra gumbo, kale, and curry potatoes, all of which are made with no animal products.
