My name is Meghan, I'm 22 years old and I live in the UK (North Wales to be exact!). I'm an ethical vegan and have been since October 2013; this means I don't consume any animal products (meat, fish, dairy, eggs and honey), I don't wear any clothing or footwear made from animal skin (leather, fur, silk, wool etc.) or use any cosmetics/toiletries that contain animal-derived ingredients or have been tested on animals.
Since transitioning to a plant-based diet I have developed a keen interest in cooking and creating delicious and nutritious meals. I advocate balance so whilst pretty much all my recipes are wholesome I also eat less nutritious things whenever I feel like it (usually something every day) - I'm a sucker for vegan ice cream and chocolate! I've struggled with eating disorders (namely anorexia and orthorexia) in the past so maintaining a balanced diet and encouraging other people to do the same is so important to me. Life is supposed to be enjoyed and, to me, enjoyment is sharing a tub of ice cream with my boyfriend without feeling guilty, not forcing down a meal that I hate the taste of but that I've been told I 'should' be eating. Chocolate every day is a must, let's be real.
I hope this blog can be of some help to you and if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact me via email, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. I love seeing people's recreations of my recipes so it would be wonderful if you could let me know if you try any of them, either by leaving a comment on the recipe post or by tagging me on Instagram.
Have a great day!
