In the beginning… We were just two starry-eyed nerds who dreamed of living in a more compassionate world.
When we met we’d both been vegan for ethical reasons for over 15 years and shared a mutual belief that one of the most noble things we could with our lives is advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves. Since then, we’ve worked at some of the largest animal advocacy organizations in the world on corporate campaigns, youth outreach programs and cruelty case work. We’ve witnessed ugly indifference to the suffering and cruelty animals face every day and the courageous acts of kindness that reflect the best of humanity. It’s not easy caring as much as we do about what happens to animals. They get a rough deal in this world. Throughout all these years we’ve had to hold on to one solid belief: There is good in everyone and if we can make living a compassionate lifestyle as easy or easier than not being vegan… well we could save the save world (and some animals) one meal at a time!
We started this blog a few weeks after our wedding as a way to keep in touch with our friends and family who are now all over the world. Now we share the cooking tips and tricks we’ve picked up over the years and our passion for not being a jerk with thousands of readers everyday. Our projects focus on veganizing some of the most beloved omnivore cookbooks ever and our recipes really try to challenge vegan stereotypes and push past what you’d expect from your vegetables… while being easy enough for even the biggest take-out connoisseur to make. Being able to share our enthusiasm for kind living with all of you in such a fun and positive way has been a dream come true for us.
Most people that know us know that life didn’t make it easy for us to be together and have the family we always wanted but these days we have become the definition of happiness, home, love and family.
