ATLANTIC COUNTY, N.J. — Dominic Barksdale used to have an unhealthy diet, weigh 245 pounds, and wake up at 6 a.m. with acid reflux. Instead of trying to find healthier food options, he decided to cook them.

Barksdale turned his newfound healthy lifestyle into a business called “Almost Vegan.” As the name implies, Barksdale makes healthier meals with a small amount of meat, and these meals have helped him lose weight and live a much healthier lifestyle.

If you want to try some of Barksdale’s home-cooked meals for yourself, you can check out Almost Vegan’s Instagram and Facebook pages, and you can also give Barksdale a call at (609) 674-2272.
