Hi there and welcome to Well Vegan! 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!
Katie Koteen, Founder of Well Vegan
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 part. 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 Portland, Oregon. I’m a web designer, pet enthusiast, yoga student and more importantly, an enthusiastic eater.
