Hello and welcome!
I’m Nicolette – your answer to vegan eating without complication or lack of flavor.
I went vegan overnight in 2016 after watching Cowspiracy and The Best Speech You’ll Ever Hear by Gary Yourofsky.
After learning the impact a standard American diet can have on the animals, the planet and our health, it felt like a no brainer to give up animal products if I didn’t need them and I’d likely be a lot healthier without them.
But the immediate question was…what am I going to eat now?!
Before going vegan, I had no real experience or passion for being in the kitchen. The extent of cooking I was familiar with was microwaving pre-prepared meals and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
However, anyone that knows me knows that I love a good challenge and I went all in.
I quickly realized being vegan and eating healthier doesn’t have to mean daily kale salads or expensive, green smoothies.
In fact, you can continue eating the same way you’re accustomed to with just a few small swaps and changes.
On this website, I’m here to convince you that vegan recipes can be:
- flavor packed
- easy to prepare
- budget friendly
- quick and simple
- family friendly
Why Don’t You Talk About Animal Cruelty or Environmental Impacts of Diet?
Although I personally switched to a vegan diet because of animal cruelty and environmental impacts of a standard American diet, I don’t push these topics on my website for one reason:
People should make changes in their own life because they want to, not because they feel guilt-tripped or shamed to do so.
I don’t believe that people learn when they feel like they are being taught a lesson.
I came to vegan eating on my own without and you should too.
Choosing the diet that’s right for you and your family isn’t black and white and I’m not going to pretend it is.
I’m just here to teach you how fun and easy it can be to eat more plants.
