Ahoy, I’m Margaux!

We’re based in Pretoria, South Africa, and are a bunch of introverts who love our cave, family, and food! This blog is dedicated to testing out new and exciting vegan creations for our taste buds, using fresh, colourful, and seasonal ingredients. I love getting to know others with similar passions for food and food photography, and of course, feeding others is a never-ending thrill! The majority of the food on the blog is gluten-free, low on refined products, and diabetic-friendly, so that everyone can have a slice or bite without feeling bad.I started this blog back in the day as a type of virtual cookbook for my own reference, but it’s now grown to be an expression of all the crazy ideas I get stuck in my brain thanks to the truly amazing sources of inspiration out there. Following all the wonderful food bloggers helped me realize that going vegan was anything but scary; in fact, more tasty than anything else! If you have any questions, want to connect, or just shoot the breeze, you’re always welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 😀I’m a bit of a busy body, so I don’t just juggle multiple jobs, studies and feasting. I also volunteer and foster through an organization called Catz R Us SA – they really do amazing work and it is such a thrill to be a small part of such a dedicated team of people who really have animal welfare as their main priority. If you’re not in Pretoria take a moment to get to know the shelters in your area and maybe even see if you can help out, spend some time cuddling the animals, or feed the volunteers. 🙂 We’ve fostered over 30 cats and kittens and it has been such a joy, so if you spot lots of photos at the end of food posts don’t be surprised!
If you want to see where you can find me, check out my Contact or Press pages. I also have a “why vegan” page which is a bit more personal, and I’d love if you shared your story there, even if it’s not about veganism!
