Aloha, my name's Katey and I am a very proud vegan.
When I was 12 I did a project at school about animal cruelty. I love animals and I knew I didn’t want to be responsible for the death of an animal just so I could eat. At 12 I became a vegetarian and continued for the next 12 years. Last year I went to Vegfest to get more recipes and try new foods as I found the vegetarian life unchallenging and boring. When I was there I met the Veganuary team, after a lovely chat and some testers of some amazing food testing I decided that I would sign up and give Veganuary a go.
The more research I did into veganism the more excited I was to try so I decided in September last year to do it. I couldn’t wait until January!
Since becoming vegan I have rediscovered my love of cooking and become part of a growing community of like minded people. I decided this year that I would blog my vegan experiences, share recipes and show people how fun and tasty vegan life can be!
I love blogging and I’ve had the best response. Going vegan has changed my life, I have more energy, feel happier in general and I’m so glad that I’m living a cruelty free lifestyle!
When I’m not blogging you will find me singing in a choir, snuggling with my cat or teaching teenagers health and social care!!
