I’m Chrissy, or Christina, or.. the food police as my family sometimes calls me, much to my dislike!
I’ve been passionate about delicious food for as long as I remember, from sitting on the kitchen counter aged 6 playing DJ for my dad and stealing mushrooms from his steak dinner preparations (:/ steak I know!) to dancing around my own little kitchen making yummy burrito bowls.. I’ve always been excited about food!
Nowadays though, I’m a LOT more conscious about what’s on my plate. I decided early on in life that I love animals and I’m not interested in eating them, which led to some nutrition research when I got fed up of eating microwavable Linda McCartney lasagnes for every meal.. So that brought me, I guess, to where I am now! Studying a PhD at Queen’s University Belfast in plant-based eating; specifically about the Mediterranean diet, yum!
I decided to start this little blog about plant-based eating to try and share my passion for healthy, scrumptious, cruelty-free food.
I absolutely promise there will be no food policing though! Although I’m personally committed to following a plant-based, vegan diet I understand how challenging it can be to make changes to our eating habits. One of the things I love most about food it its ability to bring people together, and I believe that encouraging healthier diets and more environmentally friendly foods is a battle that can only be won if we all play our part.
