Welcome - Vancouver with Love is a plant-based food blog, sharing a love of vegan recipes and travel. My name is Elizabeth Emery (email me here!) 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 and reviews, 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, you'll find them all here.
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, and if you'd like to get in touch please email me here.
For all questions about the blog, please email me here.

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. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
