Hi there, I’m Christine and I am really happy that you are here.
I live in Portland, Oregon with my musically talented fiance, Brian, and our ex-stray black cat, Gus who loves cuddles and talking to anything that moves outside.
ABOUT ADOPTING A PLANT-BASED DIET
The first question I asked myself is if I could I go through the act of killing an animal and all the processes necessary to get the meat ready to cook. The answer was a resounding NO. Feeling like I didn’t deserve to meat eat then if it was only from an out of sight out of kind stand point I proceeded to watch a few documentaries on the meat and dairy industry and on adopting a plant-based diet. Through watching these films, I learned not only about the unimaginable cruelty inherent in the meat, dairy and egg industry (a lot of it we had not been aware of), but also about the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet and i had to at least try going vegan.
ABOUT THE BLOG
I’ve always loved cooking but adopting a plant-based diet has given me a renewed inspiration. Every time I make dairy free sour cream or cheese it feels like I’m a scientist that’s just discovered something new.
I hope you like these recipes and, even if you are not ready to ditch meat, dairy and eggs straight away, our recipes will encourage you to leave animal products off your plate more often.
