About Us

My name is Matt. Me and my wife Kristen runs this blog. I’ve been a foodie for years. Every gathering with friends or family revolves around “what’s for dinner?” And we sometimes fight over who gets to cook. So, when I went vegan, I brought generations of eating tradition with me. It’s been great fun integrating old ways into new healthy and sustainable diet.

My wife Kristen is a medicinal herbalist, museum junkie and artist. She is actually learning to cook. But she has been a baker for as long as I can remember.

We’ve got three kids, One adult kid and two teens.  Two are girls, one is a boy.  Two are vegetarian and trying to become vegan one is an omnivore.  Two are picky eaters, one will eat anything.   Clearly, they can’t (or won’t) agree on anything.  But they are all smart, opinionated and learning to make their own choices.

We started this blog when we began the journey toward vegetarianism.  For me, a light bulb went on when I realized that vegetarian cooking was far more than taking out the meat.  A new and diverse life awaited me as I discovered new ingredients and new cuisines.  This blog reflects that journey.  I try to appeal to long-time vegans.
