After many years of feeling guilty about the kind of foods I was choosing to put in my body (due to a whole lot of reading and research), I officially became vegetarian on Sept 1st, 2014. I am not officially vegan, but choose as many vegan options as possible when cooking or food shopping for my family, as you might be able to tell from my Instagram account. My sister has a gluten allergy, so I am always conscious of ways to make my recipes gluten free if I can, as well. I believe in a whole food, sustainable lifestyle, which I hope is also reflected in my recipes. I really enjoy making my recipes completely from scratch, and I am proud of that. It may not be the easiest way, but for me, time in the kitchen is always enjoyable!
