Hi, there! I'm Kayla 🙂

About My Recipes

First, let me thank you for joining me on this journey – I’m so glad to have you here! 

I create budget friendly, easy-to-follow vegan recipes that are usually fully customizable (meaning you don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy my dishes)!

A few questions I’m always asked…

The short version? It’s so much better for the environment, for your health, and for the animals. I’ve done plenty of research to know what my body needs to be healthy, and animal products aren’t necessary for me to live an optimal life!

The long version? Check out this post Bill wrote on why we went vegan! What you read may shock you – but it may also take time to fully absorb the information. It took six months for us to take the leap!

Protein: Lentils, edamame, chickpeas, hemp seed, quinoa, and so, so much more!

Calcium: Soy products (beans, milk, tofu), brazil nuts, sesame seeds (and tahini), seaweed, cruciferous vegetables like kale and more!

Zinc: Pumpkin seeds, lentils, beans, cashews, chia seeds, and more!

Vitamin B12: I take a B12 supplement – unfortunately, it’s hard to get enough B12 on a vegan/vegetarian diet. However, you can also get B12 through fortified cereals and milks like oat milk!

As a matter of fact, I have! I’m a lot more energetic, I sleep a lot better, have less stomach aches, and my acne has cleared up a lot!

And that’s just in the first month. It doesn’t take long to see the benefits, as long as you eat a healthy, balanced diet with all the necessary nutrients!
