Welcome to Speedy Vegan Kitchen, my name is Lauren and I'm on a mission to make vegan eating fun, easy and delicious! My recipes make use of simple, nutritious ingredients and are designed for busy schedules; think healthy eating with minimal hassle.
Second, Speedy alludes to my running addiction. I started running competitively in University, first on the varsity cross-country team and later as part of a distance running club and have been running almost every day since. Have questions about running on a vegan diet? Shoot me an email! You can also check out my running blog (coming soon) or my trail adventure instagram.
My own transition into plant-based eating started in second year university, when a month-long vegan challenge turned into an 8-year love affair.
I won't tell you that being 100% vegan is always convenient, but I do feel good knowing that I am choosing a way of eating that I feel to be centered in being kind. Kind to my body, by reducing my risk of chronic disease and kind to the planet, by reducing my carbon footprint, impact on ecosystems and contribution to animal suffering. As a MD, I'll be the first to admit that a fully vegan diet may not be feasible choice for every individual. I do, however, believe that every little bit counts, so whether you're looking to make a full transition or just hoping to incorporate some more plant based meals into your weekly rotation, I'm here to help!
