Hi, I’m Rachel, a raw foodie and ethical vegan living in the beautiful city of Bath in Somerset UK.
I love creating decadent raw desserts because I think they’re a fun way to show what it is possible to create from relatively simple, unprocessed foods. I share my recipes because I want to show people that adopting a vegan, plant-based lifestyle does not mean you have to give up eating delicious food, and that eating a diet of mostly fruits and vegetables, with a few raw desserts thrown in for good measure, will fuel the soul and the body.
A little bit about me!
I am very lucky to be working in my dream job as an editor on the fabulous Vegan Food & Living magazine, and I am so grateful to have been such a fab platform through which to spread the vegan love from! We put a whole lot of love into each issue, and if you want to get your hands on a copy, you can subscribe here, or pick up single copies here. Or just come and say hello to us on Facebook!
Since adopting a plant-based diet over 6 years ago, my perspective on life, and our purpose in life, has been changed for the better, and has given me a brighter outlook and a deeper connection to the beautiful planet we are so lucky to live on. I believe eating a predominantly raw diet helps you to appreciate nature in all it’s forms in a much deeper way, and this ultimately makes life more enjoyable.
I first paid attention to what I ate during my second year of my undergraduate degree, after neglecting my health in favour of a student lifestyle. To cut a long story short, my boyfriend’s stepmother introduced me to the raw food, vegan lifestyle, something I had never even heard of before, and I just fell in love with it. I love how beautiful the food looks on the plate, the amount you can eat, and the way it makes you feel. Since adopting a plant-based lifestyle I feel I have become calmer, happier and more appreciative of ‘the smaller things in life’.
In terms of my everyday diet, on a day to day basis I eat a plant-based vegan diet, and my breakfast usually consists of raw fruits and berries with heaps of leafy greens, whilst dinner will includes lots of beans and pulses, and a whole lot of potatoes, rice and pasta.
