Who is behind Blueberry Vegan?
My name is Rina and I am the creative mind behind Blueberry Vegan.
My passion ist cooking and baking. Since always. And for a while now, since 2014 to be exact, I only cook and bake plant based. I work full time at a bank and in my free time I love to be in the kitchen, go hiking in the woods or relax during yoga.
Why am I writing this blog?
I want to show you that a vegan diet is not made of side dishes or boring arrangements where just the meaty part is left out.
A vegan diet means abundance and great food in so many varieties.
When I began to live vegan I thought, as probably anybody else, that this lifestyle is characterized by sacrifice. But the longer I lived as a vegan and spend more and more time with my meals, I began to realize, that I have lived an restricted life so far.
While eating the same couple dishes over and over again then, I now could not keep up with all the recipes and ideas I came across my new lifestyle. What I have experienced so far, I want to share with you. Join me on my vegan evolution.
What to expect on this site?
Most of all this will be a vegan food blog with lots of vegan recipes. Good food is just my thing. Most of the time I love to cook myself and experiment with different flavors and spices.
This site isn’t a health site with only healthy recipes. Although I love to make healthy treats, I also enjoy fat, sugary and unhealthy stuff. So you will find a mixture of that.
However the cooking is not necessarily happening at home. Since I love to hike, you will find some recipes here, that I have prepared outside on a camping stove. Find my travel diaries telling my adventures on the Camino de Santiago and GR 221 in the category On the Road.
From time to time I like to go to a restaurant and let someone else cook for me. So I review the vegan options in non-vegan restaurants or the variety of vegan dishes in vegan restaurants here. Most of the restaurants are in driving distance from my home town Wuppertal.
I hope I can carry you along the vegan way with me and make you just as enthusiastic as I am. Feel free to contact me or follow me on my social networking accounts. I am looking forward to your feedback.
