Hi! I'm Leanne.

I am a Chicago based vegan intrigued by making plant-based eating simple and satisfying. I post recipes and restaurant reviews, mostly in Chicago, but also on my travels. I've been vegetarian for over a decade and vegan for going on three years. I try to eat whole foods plant based, but I never shy away from vegan treats like doughnuts and seitan sandwiches. I'm working full time and in grad school so a lot of my meals are on the go. I am not a fan of heating up leftovers but I'm working on being a better lunch packer and this space is a way to hold myself accountable! Please reach out if you have any questions about veganism in general or about cooking/eating out on a plant-based diet.
