Hi, my name is Emily! I’m an ethical vegan living in Canada with my 2 rescue dogs and vegan boyfriend. I became vegan 7 years ago once I found out about factory farming and the dairy industry. Once I knew what was happening, I could no longer support those industries.

I love to create vegan recipes that are easy to make and also affordable. When I first went vegan, I lived off pbj sandwiches and cereal with soy milk. Shortly after I taught myself to cook, and here we are today – sharing my recipes on an incredible not-for-profit vegan organization’s page!

I also run my own small business called Vegan Veins (www.etsy.com/shop/veganveins) where I sell vegan-themed apparel. I think T-shirts are a great form of activism as you raise awareness about veganism without even having to say a word.

As well as cooking, in my free time I love studying herbalism, walking outside, reading and doing art. I am also beginning my zero waste journey which is exciting to me!
