My name is Lucie, I live in LA & this is my utterly yummy (and fabulous) blog! I am an absolute foodie and have been vegan for a while now. However, recently I was diagnosed with celiac disease, needed to exclude all gluten (and traces of it) for my diet. I felt stuck, and bored with the food I now had to eat, and lost the passion I had about it. That was until I stumbled upon a fellow blogger's site and was truly truly inspired! (you know who you are Miss Mitchell, check out her blog @ kalewithlove.com). It got me all excited about food again. I want to show you that vegan, gluten-free food can be just as fabulous (even more so in my opinion) and utterly yummy! and I want to get you just as excited about it as me.
I truly believe in a vegan, gluten free lifestyle, and I want to share my passion for it with you. Since switching to gluten free I can honestly say I feel fantastic, on the inside and out! Aside from all the horrible gluteny celiac symptoms going away, my skins clearer, I have more energy, and just in general alot happier & more smiley!
I may eat a lot of yummy veggies & wholefoods but I also have a huge sweet tooth, and I believe that indulging it, & eating healthily don't have to be mutually exclusive. Infact I love finding ways to satisfy my chocolatey cravings in a way thats good for me. And, by sharing my recipes, I want to help you to do the same. So you will most definitely find a lot of super yummy sweet chocolate treats on this blog. It's just an added bonus that they are all vegan, gluten free, & just darn good for you!
Aside, for wanting to eat healthily, I am also passionate about exercise. I am an utter yogi (I try to do some most days) & enthusiastic runner, that also experiments with spin classes, dance, & pilates.
It's my dream to own a gluten free, vegan cafe/deli/bakery & adjoining yoga studio in LA, and hopefully help other people feel the benefits of being vegan and gluten-free!
I would love you to come on this vegan gluten-free journey with me. From innovative recipes that satisfy the foodie in me, to me trying to navigate and adjust to this new celiac friendly lifestyle... Welcome to my health & wellness blog. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have writing it :)
Love Lucie xo (i'm very friendly, feel free to say hi and introduce yourselves)
