The smell of a tomato fresh off the vine, the feel of a lemon as you squeeze it for juice, the taste of an avocado scooped straight from its peel… I love the magic of fresh fruit and vegetables, and the delicious transformation they undergo in my kitchen. Cooking excites the senses, demands attentiveness and creativity, and leads to delicious outcomes I adore feeding my vegan family. And as my son grows, I love watching him become more interested and engaged in vegan cooking. The kitchen is truly the heart of our home. Becoming vegan changed my life. It helped me discover my passion for cooking. Now that my husband and I have a child, vegan food has become even more important in our everyday lives. As we introduce the wonderful bounty of foods and flavors to our son, we aim to help him appreciate this compassionate way of eating and living.
