“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.”
– Leo Tolstoy
Why am I vegan? I am vegan because I could never live with myself knowing that my actions as a consumer are causing the suffering of a sentient being. I live in a time and part of the world where I can access the information and resources to live a lifestyle where my dietary, clothing, entertainment, choices don’t have to harm others. I am also vegan because animal agriculture is extremely socially and environmentally unsustainable.
This is a space for me to share my favourite personal recipes with the world. While I believe that we should consume wholesome vegan food to nourish our bodies for optimal health and well-being, I believe that food can be so much more than just ‘fuel.’ Food is way of bringing people together; friends, family, and cultural groups. Food can tell stories; like recipes passed from generation to generation. Food is also a way of healing our bodies; allowing us to have a healthy relationship with ourselves and what we eat. Hopefully through my simple and delicious vegan recipes you will see that choosing to eat cruelty-free food can be very rewarding: for your conscience, body, and taste buds!
