I am a Vancouver-based food blogger, writer and recipe developer of English origin with a passion for local food. Having been vegetarian since the age of four and vegan for the last seven years, my focus is on showing that plant-based eating can be beautiful and inspiring and well as healthy and simple. There’s nothing I love more than inspiring others to create from plants!
Food for me is a passion. I find it strange when people comment on the restrictiveness of a plant-based diet, because to me there is huge variety in it. In fact, I’m probably more adventurous with food now than before I was vegan. I love colour and vitality in my recipes as well as simplicity and elegance.
Here, you’ll find a collection of inspiring whole food recipes that are created and tested in my kitchen. All are vegan, naturally gluten-free and refined sugar-free. I’m a firm believer in the power of whole foods and have found them to be health-enhancing and balancing.
In addition to creating recipes and guides to the ‘basics’ of vegan living, I’m also an avid traveller. I know how challenging it can be to maintain a vegan or vegetarian diet while on the move, so I write location-specific travel guides, offering tips and recommending my favourite eateries in destinations around the world such as California, Japan, Hawaii and Vancouver.
Alongside these, you’ll also find the occasional review of some of my plant-based travel experiences – if you’re looking for a vegan hotel or a traditional vegan afternoon tea, this section is for you!
This blog is my creative outlet and writing it brings me joy on a daily basis. I hope it leaves you feeling inspired – if it does then I’m doing my job.
I love working with companies who create natural, whole food products! If you have sponsorship, recipe development or general enquiries please feel free to email me.

Please note: My recipes are just that – recipes. They are not intended to form nutritional guidance or any sort of ‘healthy eating’ doctrine. They are naturally vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free because that’s the way I generally eat. My personal philosophy is about eating more whole foods and embracing the full range of natural plant-based ingredients which are often underused in the modern world. Although I may sometimes mention that a recipe is high in protein or vitamins etc., this is merely information and should not be taken as nutritional advice.
