About us: Who are The Vegan Food Junkies?
Hi, we are The Vegan Food Junkies and we are a vegan couple from Cambridge that thought it was about time that we started to share our vegan journey and recipes with everyone. We both love cooking and it's safe to say that I (Rea) have an addiction to sharing the delicious food that we eat on a daily basis on social media. We use my Instagram account to document our creations and our restaurant discoveries when we're out and about, but now we have this blog too! For many, finding vegan food to eat away from home can be difficult, but that's where we come in. Our aim is to make your job easier, whether it's giving you delicious and cheap meal ideas, or giving you our advice for eating as a vegan abroad. Matt has been vegan since May 2016 and I (Rea) have been vegan since October 2016, so in reality we still have a lot more to discover.
We are now travelling around the south coast of Spain as part of our latest adventure. We hope that we can help any of you that may be travelling abroad with finding inexpensive but versatile vegan foods, as well as finding places to eat when travelling. If you would like a more daily update on our vegan food habits whilst abroad, then please follow my instagram account (@reatheveganfoodjunkie) which can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/reatheveganfoodjunkie/
Hi, I'm Rea and I'm a French and Spanish student at Nottingham Trent University. I started my vegan journey towards the end of 2016 and it was the best decision that I'll ever make. I've only recently discovered how easy and delicious vegan cooking can be, but it's given me the opportunity to share my new discoveries. Many see the vegan lifestyle as complicated, but my aim is to demonstrate just how easy and rewarding a vegan diet and lifestyle can be. So, a bit about me: I'm a massive football fan and a lifelong Nottingham Forest fan, and obviously I have a keen interest in foreign languages. I find it fascinating to learn about new cultures and for me, learning the language is the most important aspect of culture. Also, as my tomboy nature becomes clearer, I love gaming on my Playstation. It's perfect for relaxing and connecting with friends. However, the most important thing about me is my plant-based lifestyle. It has made me who I am today and has fuelled my interest in exploring new vegan food hotspots and sharing my new discoveries with you all. I look forward to sharing my vegan journey with you and offering support for new vegans or indeed anyone who is interesting in trying vegan food.
Hi, I’m Matt, the other vegan food junkie! I will provide a variety of different posts to the blog, ranging from unexpected vegan food finds to useful survival hints. 2016 was a big year for me. In May I made the change from eating meat to following a plant-based diet. In a couple of months, I then graduated uni with a degree in Media Studies. Making the vegan change is the single best decision I have made in my life… apart from dating Rea… obviously! So, some things about me: I work in marketing, I love herbal tea - I literally have to try every flavour! Since Christmas 2017 I have started collecting indoor plants. I currently have: An Aloe Vera, a Money Tree, a Bonsai tree, a Flamingo plant, a couple of cacti, a Kalanchoe a Pink Quill, and a beautiful Bromeliana… They’re kind of taking over the house! My aim for this blog is to also show how easy being vegan can be, most say it is soooo expensive; but in reality, it can be so cheap. Be sure to stay tuned for all of our posts!
