My name is Lindsay and I am an American girl from the very sunny state of Arizona, living in Leicester, England with my husband and two tuxedo kitties, Sweep and Fred. 

I grew up as a vegetarian in the midwest, and as a teenager in Arizona began to eat a bit of fish and chicken. Then, as an adult in England I started to eat red meat on very rare occasions. About four years ago my husband, who was very much a “meat and two veg” guy when we met, decided to go vegetarian for moral and health reasons, and I decided that I would support him and do the same. Not long after that I made the decision to go vegan, although it was a slow transition for me I must admit!

Since going vegan, I have been on a mission to veganize some of my old favorite foods and share them with you here. I will also share my dining and travel experiences in the hope of helping other vegans. I hope you enjoy my blog – please feel free to get in touch or leave comments!

If you want to know more about me and my personal journey, check out some of the interviews I’ve done on my media page.

    Wow it sounds like you’re living an awesome life! My husband actually ended up changing my eating habits inadvertently as well; he grew up without red meat, where as my parents love it and served it often. When we moved in together I didn’t buy it because I didn’t want to have to cook two dishes. Then through time I began to learn more and more about food and am now eating poultry or fish only 3 or 4 times a week and eating vegetarian for the other days. That number is probably going to go down as I get older and choose to go even more meat free. Good luck to you, your blog looks great! Feel free to check out mine anytime, I write about how to live an organic lifestyle on a budget. Looking forward to reading more from you!

      thanks for the comment! It’s amazing how over time it really gets easier to live without meat and it doesn’t feel like you’re deprived of anything. I realized before making the conscious decisions to go more vegan, that most of what I was cooking was vegan anyway, who knew! I’ll be sure to check out your blog: )

        It’s been happening that way for me too, one day I realized I’d been eating vegetarian a few times a week and was pleasantly surprised! I definitely don’t feel deprived, that’s why I think a lot of people are hesitant to try, they think they wont feel satisfied.

    I have just come across your blog, I went to uni in Leicester and come back every few weeks to see friends so I am interested to see any reviews you have done of the area 🙂 I am also a vegetarian and find dining out can be so hit or miss!! Most restaurants are getting much better though. Great blog, glad I found you!
