I embarked on a 5 year journey around the globe to discover a wealth of delicious ingredients I never knew existed. During my life-changing foodie venture across 70 countries, I have collected hundreds of recipes and recreated vegan versions of my favorite dishes. And then it happened: I HAD A CRUSH ON VEGAN FOOD! It was love at first bite which has altered the course of my life forever. One by one, I have transformed all the best recipes I gathered into delectable plant-based meals I enjoyed eating. I travelled from Mexico to India, from Nepal to Bolivia, from the Philippines to South Africa, from China to Costa Rica and everywhere in between. I gained more awareness about a lifestyle and diet that started nurturing me and helped me to thrive, inside and out.
At the same time being on a vegan diet has less environment impact compared to a meat based diet which means it can help combat hunger, climate change, air and water pollution and ocean dead zones. It also spares countless animals a lifetime of misery at factory farms. Something that was grown in misery and despair can not be a source of health and vibrancy. If we decide to eat fewer meals with meat or dairy each week, we can have a huge impact on our collective health and the health of the planet. Applying the knowledge and lifestyle to my own life, has inspired me to support others to be more aware about their food choices and understanding the power they hold with every decision making. A plant-based diet is not about deprivation but about giving oneself more abundance of food choices that is a never ending journey.
From mouthwatering burger patty on pickled root slaw to soul soothing herbed tomato pasta with scrumptious protein balls and crazy chickpea curry, each dish has been crafted with love and attention to detail. All we need is a new perspective sometimes to get started on a new exciting journey. With understanding comes great awareness which is essential for a healthy and happy lifestyle and the source of emotional and physical strength.
