My initial choice eat plant-based as a challenge quickly evolved into a life changing experience. This was no longer about me, but about the innocent beings who are exploited for their flesh, eggs, milk and skin in additions to many of forms of exploitation, none of which we as humans, need to survive. Over time and more research I have come to the understanding that veganism is not a diet or a lifestyle, rather it is an ethical stance against all forms of oppression towards animals.
Since I started eating a plant-based diet, I have been experimenting with recipes, creating 'veganized' versions of regular desserts and have in the meantime developed a passion for food photography.
The goal of this website is to share plant-based recipes and to show that you don't have to compromise on treating yourself when vegan. All the recipes you love can be recreated using plant-based ingredients. There is such an abundance of plant foods that can be used.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I'm Christina, thank you so much for visiting my corner of the web. I'm here to share your favourite recipes, made entirely from plant-based foods.
I love creating. As well as developing recipes, I have a passion for photography, photo editing and most importantly spreading the vegan message.
It all started back in 2015, when I decided to adapt a plant-based diet, without doubt, the best decision I ever made. I had been vegetarian for about three years at that point, as I thought that by leaving meat off my plate I wasn't contributing to harming other animals. At the time, I didn't understand much about other industries such as dairy, eggs, honey, silk, wool and leather. I thought that by just leaving meat off my plate, i was doing enough.
However, towards the end of 2014 I began to research more about plant-based eating and I decided to give it a go.
Initially, I gave myself a 30 day "vegan" challenge, and thought to myself if I can do that, then I will continue the lifestyle. But as I made my way through those 4 weeks and was how easy it was, I began to research more and watch documentaries about animal use, health issues and climate breakdown. (see bottom of page for suggested viewings)
What I learned from watching these documentaries put a lot of things into perspective for me.
I really encourage you to try out these recipes, and add your own twist and signature style to them. The plant kingdom is so abundant, if you don't like a particular ingredient, or have an allergy, there is an array of possibilities in terms of switching in and out ingredients. Feel free to get in touch with me and together we can find the substitute for you.
If you happen to try any of my recipes do tag me on your social media for a chance to be featured. I also encourage you to share your creations with as many friends, family members, work colleagues as possible to help spread the message and encourage others to go vegan.
