Thank you for stopping by my food and travel blog.
I first started this blog in January 2013: a new years resolution that actually stuck. I wanted to work my way through different cookbooks and post about the recipes that I tried and enjoyed. At the time of starting the blog I also knew that I would be travelling to Argentina for a month and wanted to post about that experience. Consequently, this became a blog about sharing food and adventures.
Not that long after starting the blog, I discovered the wonders of veganism. Having been curious about the whole thing for a while, after watching the documentary Vegucated, I was changed. Very quickly my blog turned into a journey of discovering the ins and outs of eating vegan, while also having a peanut allergy.
What I want people to know is that eating vegan does not have to be an all or nothing thing. The way I have adopted this life-style is by eating vegan whenever I can, without inconveniencing myself or others. When it is not convenient to eat vegan I will gladly eat vegetarian, and only when someone invites me to their house and serves meat will I eat it. If there is a vegetarian option, I will take it. But, you can be sure that if you come over to my house, you will be served vegan. This may not be the way that most people go vegan, but it has worked for my boyfriend and I for two and a half years.
This blog exists to share my adventures both in the kitchen and in the world around me. It is a resource for myself to keep track of my recipes, and to be able to easily share recipes with others. I also like to recreate recipes from people I admire in the plant-based world *, making my own adjustments and sharing what I experienced when cooking something. Sometimes I create my own recipes, so that is also fun to share.
Thanks for the support, and best culinary regards to all!
