Hi there and welcome to Well Vegan! My name is Katie and I’ll hopefully be your tour guide to a plant-based diet. My food experiences began on the dusty prairies of the mid-western United States, where green beans come in cans and every meal involves at least one animal bit. It was a binding experience, to say the least. Luckily times (and hairstyles) have changed since the early 80s, and regardless of your geographical situation, great food is available year-round. I’ve been in California the past few decades, most currently living in the Bay Area. I’m a web designer, pet enthusiast, yoga student and more importantly, a food lover. And of course, a fan of all things vegan and delicious.
The idea of Well Vegan came to be after my daughter was born. She had a glut of food allergies that transitioned us from vegetarians to vegans and we’ve never turned back. I soon discovered that with the right recipes and a little planning it’s entirely possible to enjoy some great tasting food while also benefiting from a healthy diet. And so, I decided to develop a site that would make eating a plant-based diet easy as pie — btw, you have to check out this pie recipe.
With a plant-based lifestyle becoming more popular and some very talented cooks experimenting and pushing the ingredients into new places, there’s never been a better, or tastier, time to be a vegan. I hope you’ll find the recipes here rewarding and tasty enough to share with your family and friends!
