Greetings, fellow vegans (and vegan-friendly folks)!
My name is A-K and I started writing swell vegan as a way to learn and motivate myself about eating vegan food that is both delicious and (mostly) healthy. I especially love whole foods, raw veganism, and better-for-you sweets. While I don’t have food allergies, I enjoy cooking foods that are free of many of the major (vegan) food allergens as a way to maintain balance and variety in my own diet as well as include people who get left out by a lot of conventional vegan recipes.
I currently cook and bake for a living, but I’ve never been professionally trained. My mom let me cook and bake with her from an early age, and soon I started cooking many of our family dinners. She was amazingly supportive when I became vegetarian at 15, and I owe my love of food and sharing it with others to her.
I live, work, and bike in Minneapolis with my girlfriend and our two kitties.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
