Serving up authenticity with a side of veganism.

Welcome to my blog ~ “Authentically Vegan”. This is a space where I share my journey with vegan food and ethical living. I strive to find purpose and beauty in my daily life. I am a recent college graduate with many hobbies and interests, most of them involving food! I am a self-taught baker and photographer. On most weekends, you can find me attempting ridiculously hard recipes so I can develop techniques to eventually teach to you. I love a good farmers market. I might have a coffee addiction. I will gladly spend hours creating a babka (and then taking pictures of it afterward).

You might have noticed that I have an abundance of comfort food recipes. I believe that the best way to spread the vegan message is through delicious and approachable vegan recipes. I love hearing people say, “I can’t believe this is vegan!”. I pride myself on always remaining authentic with my readers. I do not believe in restriction, so I avoid posting about “low-fat” or “keto” because I want food to be enjoyable. Yes, meat-free and dairy-free food can and should be enjoyable!

I started this blog in 2016 as a hobby and much to my surprise, this community has grown. I share more than recipes. I love to talk about photography, intentional living, and gardening. Please take a look around and if you like it here, feel free to subscribe! I should disclose to you that I don’t like brownies. I understand that might be a deal breaker :).


What camera do you use?

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 and my iPhone. I typically use a 50 mm lens. All photos are original unless stated otherwise.

Why did you go vegan?

I went vegan because I made the ethical connection. Eating and using animal products is simply not worth it. Treating animals as products creates violence, destroys our planet, and is sometimes detrimental to our health.

How long have you been vegan?

I have been eating plant-based since January 2017. I have followed a vegan lifestyle since April/May 2017. I consider myself an ethical vegan.

General background info.

I am in my twenties! I graduated from college in 2019 and have a degree in social work. I live in Kansas and work for a mental health center.
