Hello, I’m Brittany! I’m 22, and living in Alberta, Canada with my boyfriend, William and our dog, Mandy. I use Garden of Vegan as a way to keep myself focused on working towards a healthy relationship with food. I’m passionate about veganism and I love animals. I like to spend my time creating and enjoying healthy vegan food, being in nature, reading and listening to books, and learning.
In the early spring of 2012 I began to change my diet from vegetarian to vegan, while simultaneously changing my mental focus from weight loss to health. I have a long history with negative body image, disordered eating, and anxiety. Ever since adopting a vegan diet, and focusing on my health, I’ve stopped the cycle of binging and restricting, and my mindset has become much more positive. I’ve been learning to be a more intuitive eater, and I no longer count calories. If you’re curious to hear more about my history with my weight, body image, and eating, you can check it out here. I can’t say that everything is easy now, my relationship with food isn’t perfect, and I’m not always happy with what I see in the mirror, but I have improved so much. I’m constantly working on doing better and improving myself.
In addition to updating Garden of Vegan daily, I also have my vegan lifestyle website and personal blog: I Love Vegan (www.ilovevegan.com) This is where I post my recipes, resources, tutorials, product reviews, and my personal updates.
