Well hello beautiful people. My name is Arielle and I am a psychology student, RYT certified yoga instructor and work for an amazing company called Nation Earth. After seeing the documentary Nation Earth created, called Earthlings, my entire perspective was shifted about our society’s treatment of animals. As a result I became vegan, meaning I do not consume animal products. I stay meat free not only for my animal friends, but for the environment, and most importantly for my health!
This blog is dedicated to my adventures in cooking and eating all things plant-based and delicious in LA and beyond! I eat mostly gluten-free and avoid all processed foods and refined sugar on a daily basis – my body just does better that way. I am not full celiac but have gluten-sensitivity so I just choose to commit carbacide in other ways (oh hi french fries). If you are looking to embrace a plant-based lifestyle, want simple and fast vegan recipes, and want the inside info on where to get yo’ grub on, this blog is for you.
I want to share my love for food and help everyone learn that being vegan does not equal deprivation! I eat, and I eat well, and guess what? You can too! It’s so easy. And for those readers in LA, living here affords us so many vegan opportunities in the form of stores/restaurants/markets/festivals/special events/meetups etc etc that this thing really becomes a lot of fun! I’m here to take the mystery out of vegan eating and give you the inside scoop on where to go and what to eat! My goal is to try it all so you all don’t have to 🙂 Hey, what are girlfriends for?
Thank you SO MUCH for reading!
