Hi! My name is Lindsey and I am a Veggie Mama currently located in Shanghai, China. As my home for the last 8 years, Shanghai has allowed me to expand my horizons in ways I never thought possible. While here, I have been a teacher, become a wife, an entrepreneur, a mother, and a restauranteur. To say it’s been crazy is an understatement (more on that later)! Throughout it all, my family, friends, and food have been with me, and this blog is dedicated to them.
Throughout my evolution, I have remained passionate (re:obsessive) about cooking, about learning techniques, experimenting (re:failing a LOT), and eating (my personal fave). But one BIG thing has changed throughout this evolution. When I became a mother is around the same time I started learning more about plant-based living, from diet to environmental impacts and everything in between. I became aware that the importance of what we put on our plate had so much more of an impact than I ever could have imagined. When I look at my sons, I want to imagine that the world they live in cares for all other living things, and that they are surrounded by happy and healthy friends and family.
I believe the world they live in will exist, and one of the most impactful ways we can help that happen is by choosing to eat plant-based.
Many of you might have wanted to eat less meat, or even make the transition to becoming a vegan (YAY!). Many of you might have thought that you would rather go to prison than give up meat our dairy (I know, cheese. We’ll talk about that later. Whatever your goal, I promise to do as much as I can to help you LOVE every second of eating all of the beautiful food you’ll be making to nourish your body, your family, and your friends. I promise to provide you with as much information as I can to help you feel confident that you are doing the right thing for yourself and the people you love. I promise to help you make you and the people you feed fall in love with vegan food.
Vegan food is awesome. Your family and friends will love it. The Earth and your body will thank you. And I thank you for joining me! Let’s go green and EAT!
