I'm an eternal optimist. Oh, I am a happy, joyful vegan too! I live in constant elation that my values of compassion, environmentalism, animal rights, and non-violence are not only reflected in my actions but also my consumer habits. Not to mention vegan food is DELICIOUS, healthy, filling, completely nutritious, decadent, and a pleasure to cook! My husband is not vegan but is happy living in a vegan home with a vegan wife cooking him vegan food.
I feed omnivores, vegetarians and vegans alike... everyone loves vegan cooking. Where there's passion, there's success. And naturally: if it tastes good, they will eat it! :) I normally eat a clean, processed-free diet. This being said I do use faux meat and cheese when I feel the recipe will be significantly improved. I love “veganizing” omni dishes. Lots of love and warm hugs! Jasmin xoxo
My favorite things to cook
Wow, too many to name! I love especially cooking Peruvian and German food, as this is my background. I love baking delicious decadent vegan cupcakes... pastries... Thai, Vietnamese, American, Canadian food...
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's definitely an interesting place, being Vegan - as most traditions are laden with animal products. I am in the midst of creating new family traditions. We have the usual Christmas/Thanksgiving, but now with an entirely Vegan menu (and still just as delicious, if not moreso).
My cooking triumphs
Every vegan meal, in my humble opinion, is a triumph. A triumph for compassion, the environment, our health, our world and resources. Win/win/win
