Welcome - Vancouver with Love is a plant-based food blog, sharing a love of vegan recipes and travel. My name is Elizabeth Emery and I am a blogger, writer and recipe developer of English origin.
I have a love of plant-based food, having been vegetarian since the age of four and vegan for the last seven years. My focus is on showing that plant-based living can be beautiful and inspiring as well as healthy and simple. There’s nothing I love more than inspiring others to create beautiful dishes from plants!
Food for me is an absolute passion. I find it strange when people comment on the restrictions 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 I was before I turned vegan. I love colour and vitality in my recipes as well as simplicity and elegance.
At Vancouver with Love, you'll find a collection of inspiring whole food recipes that are created 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 how-to guides for vegan living (see How to Go Vegan), I’m also an avid traveller. I know how challenging it can be to maintain a plant-based diet while on the move, so I write vegan travel guides, sharing my favourite eateries in destinations around the world such as California, Japan, London and Vancouver. Whether you're looking for plant-based restaurants, hotels or a totally vegan afternoon tea experience, I've covered them all.
This blog is my creative outlet and writing it brings me joy on a daily basis. I hope it leaves you feeling inspired about living a plant-based life!

Please note: My recipes 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. 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.
