About Me

The Vegan Edit - About MeThe Vegan Edit is a Vegan Lifestyle Blog where I share my passion for holistic wellbeing and compassion for animals and the planet! 

  The purpose is to empower you with information and tips on creating a nourishing and sustainable vegan lifestyle that you love!  I share everything from nutritious recipe ideas, health-food hangouts, vegan product reviews and more!

Some of the things I am passionate about…

? Really Great Food –> I love discovering incredible vegan cafes and being inspired to create my own delicious recipes to share with you! My favourite are the healthy, vibrant, energising kind.

? Animal Rights –> I am committed to living and sharing a lifestyle that is cruelty-free and animal friendly. Finding and supporting brands who have strong cruelty-free ethics makes me smile ? Sharing them with you is even better!

? Mother Earth –> I love being a conscious consumer and learning more about how I can minimise my impact on this wonderful planet we call home!  I am a supporter of Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd, and am constantly learning more about how I can live a more sustainable earth-friendly lifestyle. If it is eco-friendly, count me in ✌️

? Mindset & Good Vibes –> I love to learn how I can be more present, positive and self aware as mindset is key! I am always looking for ways I can grow and challenge myself and everyday is full of lessons. Most importantly, having the daily intention to stay focussed, balanced and compassionate – good vibes only!

? Fitness –> Exercise is so important for my mental health and of course physically I love to feel fit and strong. My current favourite workouts are Yoga and F45 Hiit Sessions. But I like to try out all sorts of other training too; kickboxing, tai chi, dance classes etc. I have a big list of things I want to try ??

My Story:

When I returned from living in Australia, I started to eat a vegan diet.  I studied a nutrition qualification and began educating myself on the impact of the food industry worldwide.  I believe as global citizens it’s important for us to be aware of these and make small changes to contribute to a better, healthier world.  There are so many ethical and environmental reasons that make Veganism a no-brainer: The incredible health benefits are just the start!

I have always been a big foodie and health nut – I’m from a family of serious food lovers so eating and living well is ingrained into my daily habits. I spend my evenings and weekends experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes. Testing them out on my friends and family, I’ve learnt that when it comes to healthy Vegan food you can have your cake and eat it too!  I use the most natural, unrefined and unprocessed wholefood ingredients I can find, and I have noticed that the quality of taste in my dishes has improved massively.  Eating clean and pure food nourishes your body physically, emotionally and mentally, which is hugely beneficial in our jam-packed lives. Check out The Vegan Edit recipe section where I share delicious and nourishing recipes – your body (and taste buds) will thank you for it!

I am continually learning about ways to nourish mind, body and spirit.  Improving health & wellbeing through nutrition, fitness, mind-set and healthy lifestyle choices. For me, well-being includes the wider environment and planet Earth; a consideration of the ethical and environmental impact of the choices you make.  Over the last few years I’ve gradually switched to natural eco-friendly beauty and household products. I’m also conscious of what I buy when shopping for fashion or homeware. There are many fantastic ethical products in the shops and I share my favourites, as ethical vegan products are often a little harder to find!

I hope to inspire you to live a happy, healthy, balanced life – whatever that means to you.  I invite you to join the journey, and to make small, easy changes to live a nourished life.  Be it finding exercises that you really enjoy, eating less meat and more veggies, taking time to slow down and unwind.  The Vegan Edit is my way of sharing the knowledge and experience I’ve gained with health conscious people like you, who are just as passionate, enthusiastic and committed to leading a healthy lifestyle!

I hope you enjoy the content I create for you 🙂
