Hi there, and welcome to Glue and Glitter!

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 from Atlanta, Georgia with a passion for making our planet a healthier, happier, and more compassionate place to live. My  mission is to make vegan food accessible to everyone!

This isn’t a plant strong blog. My recipes aren’t all raw or even whole food-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.

In November 2012 I released my very first book: 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. My second cookbook – BOWLS! – came out fall of 2014. You can get the print version here or buy the ebook version.

Where to Start

I believe that vegan food can be easy, delicious, and inexpensive to prepare, and I believe in treating yourself to a fancy cocktail after a busy week. If you’re new around here, check out some of my favorite recipes and resource pages:

You can check out some of my freelance writing work at Crafting a Green World, Eat Drink Better, and Feelgood Style. You can also find my writing at Care2 and How Stuff Works.
