These days, Phil Entzminger is a practicing vegan, which he has been since 2017. He claims to be obsessed with foods that avoid the use of animal products, although he admits to not being as strictly vegan as he should be. It’s not his fault, exactly; he has to sometimes eat some dairy, based on his love of cheese. Otherwise, however, Phil Entzminger eats a vegan diet because he believes it has given him more energy and it has made him feel stronger than ever before.
Over the past few years, Phil Entzminger has been an avid world traveler, with his favorite destinations being Tokyo, where he found the people to be extremely organized and friendly and because the food and culture was amazing. He has also traveled to Finland, Italy, and some parts of South Africa. In Finland, he spent most of his time as a freelance blog writer, working in the heart of Helsinki. He was impressed with the healthy mix of city and rural life he experienced there and he has particular memories of eating the best turnips anywhere there. He visited Rome with his family in 2017, and they were all able to make their own pasta and take a tour of the Vatican. Phil and the family then went to a safari park in South Africa, where they were able to get up close and personal with giraffes, lions, and many other wild animals.
