    Food Photography in September

    It’s that time again! Welcome to the September edition of my monthly vegan food porn series. I’m starting to get the hang of this food photography thing. Definitely far from a professional level, but you have to start somewhere. I’ve been more consistent with my props and backgrounds and I feel like this has improved my results. I also do minimal edits.  I adjust the color in certain areas and then I slightly adjust the saturation and contrast. Then, I apply a filter that isn’t too dramatic. Some of the more simplistic photos, I took on my phone and it’s just me holding the bowl/plate. I like to have a…

    High Protein Breakfast Recipes // Vegan

    “But where do you get your protein?”. Immediately roll my eyes. Every vegan hates this question because nearly every whole plant food has protein. “But Kaley…What about essential amino acids?”. If you eat a variety of foods, then you have nothing to worry about. The only time you wouldn’t get an adequate amount of protein is if you are starving yourself (eating well under 1000 calories). Every vegan on the planet probably hears comments or questions like these. Most people don’t realize that plant-based foods/meals can still be high-protein. I try to eat higher protein in the morning because my days are busy. I do not necessarily recommend a high…

    Veganism is a Privilege & Other Thoughts

    It’s time to ruffle some feathers! I am going to talk about the “p” word, so if you are triggered by topics about privilege, then this is your warning. Before I dive into what I want to talk about, I just need to give a little disclaimer. I am vegan and I love this lifestyle and I am not bashing or gossiping about anyone specifically. Moving on… When I was a new vegan, I would get really annoyed when people said that it was too hard and too expensive and all those other excuses. I used to think that any person regardless of economic status could adopt a vegan lifestyle.…

    Sweet Treats for Vegans

    Following a vegan lifestyle shouldn’t feel limiting! You don’t need to say goodbye to your favorite treats when you adopt a plant-based diet. Only a few easy substitutions are needed! I have three sweet treats that I want to share. They are fully vegan and beginner friendly. Pin This ⇓♥ 1. Lemon Blueberry Bread I cheated on this one because it’s barely homemade. This is more of a food hack. Most baking mixes are accidentally vegan. Instead of using eggs use a flax egg (1 tbsp of flax seeds with 2-3 tbsps of water = 1 egg) or 1/2 of a mashed banana. If the box calls for milk, just use…

    Quick Vegan Meals | Summer Edition

    Summer can be a very busy time. Most of us can’t be bothered to cook elaborate meals, especially when we would rather be outside or hanging out with friends. These meals are super simple and also fresh and light (inspired by summer). I hope you enjoy these healthy vegan meals. Pin This ♥⇓ 1. Greek Orzo Salad This is something I ate a lot prior to being vegan. My family used to make this with chicken and feta cheese, but now I just omit those ingredients. This is a good dish to meal prep because it serves about 2-4 and it stays well in the refrigerator. Ingredients… 1/2 Package of orzo…

    This Month in Food Photography: July

    It’s that time again! Time for me to share my food photos, because I’m that person. I used to eat food, but now I just take pictures of it. Just joking, I still eat my food (30 minutes later). People seem to enjoy these posts, so I am continuing this series! Since I’ve settled into my new place I have kept a fairly consistent layout/background, in the past I was all over the place. It’s definitely not perfect, but I am liking how my photos turn out most of the time.   Here are all my food photos from July! I typically do a darker background and minimal props. I…

    Pasta 3 Ways // Vegan

    I have said it before and I will say it again, “I LOVE CARBS”. The two best things about being vegan are 1) I don’t cause harm to animals and 2) I eat as much pasta as I care for. Pasta can be a versatile and simple dinner. I wanted to share my three favorite ways to have pasta. These will be great for you if you are short on time or just wanting comfort food. Pin This ↓♥ The first is Hummus Pasta. This might sound weird, but I promise it is so creamy and delicious. Basically, you cook your preferred pasta according to the package instructions. I typically use…

    Don’t Call Me “Honey”

    I hate being called “honey”, if you couldn’t tell from the title of this post. I could tackle this issue from a feminist perspective, but today I am actually going to discuss why you shouldn’t use honey as a product and this relates to the language we use. Honey is bee excrement, so why call someone that? Yes it is sweet, but it comes with a steep price. Most honey sold in supermarkets is so processed that it doesn’t even have nutritional benefits (barely any pollen). This is why some people choose to consume raw honey. While this may be more nutritious, it still hurts the bee populations. In all…

    This Month in Food Photography: June (V)

    Who doesn’t love food porn? Part of my blog (most of my blog) is about sharing the vegan lifestyle. A lot of this includes food, but I realized I haven’t shared my recent food photos. I moved to a new place, so I am still figuring out the lighting situation. Also, I have been figuring out backgrounds that I like. These are not perfect, but I am pleased with them and hopefully you are too. Pin This ⇓♥ If you want the recipes, you can check out my instagram or you can comment or email. As you can probably tell, I prefer breakfast photos. This is because there are typically more…
