It was all a dream.
I used to rely on boxed mac' n' cheese.
But then I become aware of what I was putting into my body. Through the ever so popular Netflix documentaries (Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead, Forks Over Knives, Vegucated, Food Inc, etc.) that open my eyes so wide I couldn't believe such things were happening in this world. It made sense to me to change my lifestyle. I already loved to cook but quickly I became consumed with reading the latest vegan recipe blogs while testing things out in the kitchen. I started researching the latest topics on things happening to our environment and seeing how animals were really being treated. I learned about different causes and figured out why it's important to buy organic. Since I made this choice I have never looked back and I don't think I ever will. I became so passionate about it and finally realized my calling. I combined two of my loves - Graphic Design and Veganism.
I want to spread awareness about all things healthy! Especially showing the world a view of what being Vegan really is all about. Before I became vegan I had this huge stigma attached to what I thought being vegan meant or looked like. What a bunch of animal loving, tree huggin' hippies! I don't get it. How could you not eat meat? That is so weird. I could never do that.
I think the question I get asked most is "What do you eat?". A lot of people tend to think vegans have a lot of limitations and so little to consume. Now that might be true if you live in an area that doesn't have many vegan/vegetarian options for dining out. But, if we are talking in general sense, there's a plethora of amazing legumes, grains, veggies, and fruits out there with endless mouthwatering possibilities of how they get whipped up and put in my belly. I think the world needs to open their eyes a little more and become more aware of not only where their food comes from but also the effects of what is happening to our environment as a result. My goal is to educate and inspire others to make a change in their lives or just help bring a new perspective to mind.
Join me in spreading the word.
Saving the planet one vegan at a time.
