I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog! What a fun, crazy, amazing journey it's been so far. 
Highlights would definitely have to be meeting all kinds of fascinating people, experiencing new things that I otherwise never would have experienced, and hearing from readers who enjoy the recipes. When I put up that first post, I never even considered that anything remotely cool could come from it - how wrong I was!

To celebrate, I'm hosting another giveaway. This time I'll be giving away a fabulous guide called 'By Any Greens Necessary' by Tracye Lynn McQuirter. It was one of the first books I read when I was considering going vegan and I cannot tell you enough how helpful it is. It contains lots of practical advice, recipe ideas and in-depth nutrition analysis. If you're interested in seriously probing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle, then you'll want to read this. I'll be sending out one copy to any reader, in any country. Simply leave a comment down below, on Facebook or on Twitter letting me know why you would like the book. I'll pick a winner by the end of the month, get in touch and send the copy off.

Thanks for reading and I hope you continue to join me on this journey :)

P.S. The blog now has a domain name: 


  1. i love cookbooks! Can't get enough!

  2. I want the book because I want to Eat Great, Get Healthy, Lose Weight and Look Phat :p

    Oh and Cakes insists on frying everything!!! Trying to get him to use healthier cooking options :)

  3. Hey, I follow your blog since a couple of months from France, and I really love it. I am vegetarian, so not fully vegan now and this book will help do the transition.

  4. Congratulations on hitting the one-year mark Vegan!! Your blog has really been an eye-opener for me (I was never really health-conscious and would pretty much eat any and everything); thank you for sharing your awesome recipes with us. This book would be another forcing agent for me to cook better and eat better(but I must warn you that I will still continue to eat my beloved fried plantain and baby back ribs o/:)

  5. I became vegan after an email conversation with the owner of this blog :) At that time I had no idea how to transition to veganism but after that conversation & replicating some of the delicious recipes on this blog (gari biscuits, rice and caramelized stew- oh & that delicious pineapple stir-fry which won my partner over!) I was hooked & have never looked back. Since that time, my skin has cleared & I have so much energy. I want this book so I can read more about veganism & learn new exciting recipes. Moreover, I live in Ghana where vegan books are scarce so I can't wait to share the book with my friends & family & win them over!

  6. Congratulations !!! I love your blog and i have been following it for a while. I have a goal to reduce from size 210 to 160 and the reason why it has been so difficult is because my eating habit is so bad. i go to the gym 5 times a week but my bad diets won't show for it. lately i have been looking into going into juice fast and vegan diets. The book would really be helpful to me as it will help me develop healthier eating habits. moreover i have never really won anything before. hopefully this is a first. Thank you. By the way its still february 28, 9.10 pm where i am. lol
