2018 Recap | Happy New Year!

2018 was a happy and fulfilling year at The Vegan Nigerian HQ - filled with new experiences, travel, exploration and a truckload of good food (of course!)

As we cross over into a new year, I can't help but smile as I think back on some of the highlights:
  • my blog turning 5!
  • being consistent with YouTube. This time last year, I made an unofficial commitment to post at least one video every week, and it happened! Click here to watch my top 10 vegan recipes of the year.
  • featuring real-life Vegan Nigerian stories such as this one.
  • catering a wedding for the first time. This was an experience and then some, chronicled in this blog post.
  • exploring the vegan food scene in Madrid, Malta, Thailand and Paris. I've well and truly been bitten by the travel bug and every holiday is an opportunity to discover great vegan food.
  • hosting a collaborative food/networking event centred around my favourite ingredient: plantain!
  • hosting a dinner for a celebrity guest.
  • cookery demonstrations at Brighton VegFest and London VegFest.
  • publishing my Plantain Cookbook.
I can't help but feel that 2019 is set to be extraordinary. I hope to shine a brighter spotlight on health and wellness - foods and lifestyle practices that make us feel our very best and lead lives that are joy-filled and fulfilling. I hope you stay tuned and continue to follow along.

Sending lots of love and good wishes for the New Year!
