Who are you ?
My name is Mary, I am 20 years old and I live in Paris since my birth.
What is your path ?
I grew up in an artistic environment and have always been passionate about art. After a literary baccalauréat, I enrolled in the History of Art at the Sorbonne. I passed my L1 and L2 successfully. However, I did not feel like do that for my futur job. The kitchen was at the center of all my interests. I then worked for some time in the events at La Guinguette d’Angèle. I learned a lot. This experience confirmed my willingness to devote myself to my passion: vegan cooking, nutrition and photography. In early November 2016, I dropped everything to try my luck with my blog. I also launched a personal nutrition training.
Why do you only eat plant products ?
I only eat the plant for many reasons! Since 3 years, I am very interested about food and I tested several diets to feel in better shape. I tried the sugar free, the gluten-free but the plat based diet is the only one that convinced me. This first approach concerned my health. Then I watched many documentaries like Cowspiracy and read a lot of books on the subject. No longer eat animal products has become obvious to me, especially for the planet but also and especially for the protection of animals that are not goods that one can do what one wants!
Are you vegan ?
No. I have for some time wished to be. I am very tolerant and continues to wear wool for example. I try to stop buying leather. However, I do cooking that plant. I also try to convince my entourage by preparing the delicious recipes that you can find on the blog. I have already converted my mother and grandmother! Moreover, although I advocate a 100% plant based diet, it happened to me to eat butter and eggs once or twice. As for example on a family birthday with a cake. I also know that if one day I have a craving for ice cream, I would not deprive myself. Everything is a matter of degree and eat milk or eggs once a year does not matter to me. But that has not happened to me yet. My new diet pleases me too much!
Why are there some vegetarian recipes with eggs and cheese on your blog ?
When I created this blog, I was not yet 100% vegan, it came with a little time. I started with vegetarianism. So I made a lot of vegetarian recipes on the blog. I don’t want to remove them since they are healthy and can help you become vegan smoothly.
Who’s doing your pictures ?
It’s me. I do absolutely everything on this blog. From the creation of the recipe (because they are all my own inventions, if it’s not the case, I mention it), from culinary styling to photos! I even installed myself my blog theme and customized it myself.
If you have any other questions about me or the blog, do not hesitate to contact me by mail, I will be happy to answer.
