Thanks so much for popping in! I hope you’ll take some time to poke around and see what this place is all about.
My name is Becky Striepe (rhymes with “sleepy”), and I am a vegan food writer and cookbook author with a passion for making our planet a more compassionate place to live. I want to make vegan food accessible to everyone!
I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, son, sweet old lady cat, and two very sassy rescue dogs. As the only vegan in the household (my husband is an omnivore, and my son is vegetarian), I work every day to create delicious, reasonably healthy meals for us all to eat. I’m not the home cook who will make separate dishes for everyone, so coming up with recipes we can all enjoy is my kitchen goal.
This isn’t a plant strong blog. My recipes aren’t all raw or even whole food, plant-based. I’m what you might call a healthy-ish vegan. Sure, I like a good kale salad, but I also like to enjoy a cupcake once in a while and have a cocktail at the end of a long day. You don’t have to feel deprived to live a vegan lifestyle, and my site is all about real life, sustainable veganism.
My first print cookbook – BOWLS! – came out fall of 2014. You can get the print version here or buy the ebook version. In November 2016 I released my second print cookbook: 40 Days of Green Smoothies! It’s a six week plan to help you start a green smoothie habit, and it includes a recipe for each day along with weekly tips and shopping lists.
