About Us

My spouse and I delight in experimenting in the kitchen, accompanied by music, relishing a non-alcoholic or alcoholic concoction as we prepare our meal, creating a happy chaos, and then tidying it up using eco-friendly dish soap and a microfiber sponge. We cultivate an environment devoid of criticism and applaud every stride you take toward living a life you cherish, contributing to making the world a better place. Welcome to our plant-based sanctuary.

We are animal lovers, foodies, and relentless optimists with a zest for lifelong learning. We love to travel and spend time off-grid camping. We went vegetarian a while ago and more recently embraced the vegan lifestyle after spending time with a family member who is vegan and living life to the fullest. In the past year as vegans, we’ve  learned that living and eating compassionately is not a sacrifice at all, many recipes are easy to convert with the availability of more and more vegan products.

When we are on the road, vegan foods are much more easily prepared and stored than those containing meat or dairy products. Making choices that align with our values, support our wellbeing, and make the world a better place can be the most fun and invigorating adventure of our lives.  The mission of this website is to assist you in learning what you need to know to live a life that is boundless, joyful, passionate, delectable, and also kind to our planet and its inhabitants. This could translate into a plant-based fettuccine alfredo recipe that is reminiscent of my favorite Italian eatery, a short film emphasizing the power of plants to heal illnesses, a guidebook on dairy-free ice cream, or a podcast episode on beginner’s composting. Every day, as I edit this site, I ponder on how I can inspire my friends and fellow earthlings to take the initiative on something novel. This very thought led to the inception of Vegan in the Village, because as a famous person once said…it does take a village.

We are working on a budget-friendly vegan cookbook, learning everything there is to know about aquafaba and shining a light on recipes used by our mothers and grandmothers during the time of food rationing – when they did not have eggs, butter or milk available. This also serves as our motivation to enthusiastically expand our repertoire of recipes, go-to ingredients and keep track of the best places to find the best staple products and new vegan foods as they hit the market. We are parents to a very energetic puppy who is always getting into the big middle of everything. You can catch a glimpse into our personal lives and find us serving delectable food and sharing inspiring snippets on this site.
