Easy Vegan Lunch

Since I became a vegan two years ago, I have been searching for new recipes and modifying others in order to make them vegan-friendly.

I’ve always loved cooking and baking so creating all these new recipes for me was a challenge that got me really excited. I know sometimes recipes are hard to do or need a lot of ingredients which most of the time we don’t have at home. So that is why I wanted to show you how to do these easy vegan and healthy recipes you can for an improvised lunch or dinner or even as a snack.

Check out the video to see how a day in my kitchen is!!
