About Me

I'm Louise and I'm the Salad Dodging Vegan!  Before I became vegan, it wasn't that I didn't care for animals but rather that, being a saladphobe of the highest order, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to succeed at living a vegan lifestyle.  So I kept putting it to the back of my mind.  I needn't have worried though - I've been vegan for several years now and I still don't eat any of that dastardly lettuce stuff!  Now I just wish I had realised sooner that veganism isn't about restriction or deprivation at all and that once you get past initial preconceptions, you realise it can actually broaden your tastes and food horizons.

So, I started this blog in the hope that I could show other people like me, who squirm like kids in the school canteen at the idea of living on salads, that it's perfectly possible be vegan and still have many of the foods we find familiar and comforting, whilst discovering plenty of new ones on the way.  I want to share my favourite foods and recipes in order to show people that the vegan lifestyle has something for everyone - even complete saladphobes like me!
