The Vegan Delicious promotes an eco-friendly lifestyle through bicycle commuting, vegetarianism/veganism, organic-local foods and products, recycling, composting and supporting local business.
I hope this blog encourages people to try new things and explore new animal-free food options for a healthier lifestyle and planet. Many of my recipes also are gluten-free or have gluten-free variations for those with Celiac disease or allergies or just looking to take a break from gluten. I am also make most recipes nut-free.
I work full time as a professional massage therapist in private practice in Arlington, MA having graduated form The Muscular Therapy Institute in 1998. I hold a MA State license, National Certification and Professional Membership to the AMTA. I specialize in Sports Massage, Deep Tissue, Prenatal Massage, Thai Yoga Massage and Orthopedic Massage techniques. I have worked with many amateur and professional athletes, injury and illness rehabilitation and individuals with chronic stress, tension or pain and women in all stages of pregnancy.
In addition to bodywork, I also teach yoga locally and in private sessions. I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training through Boston Yoga School in 2014, Yin Yoga teacher training with Josh Summers in 2012 and Prenatal Yoga training with Barrett Reinhorn in 2015.
When not cooking, doing bodywork + yoga, I can be found on my bike. I have been a Professional cyclist competing Internationally in cyclocross since 2003, member of the USA National Team at the World Championships in 2006 and 2010 and competed in 16 World Cup races. I currently hold the title for the USA Single Speed National Champion and Single Speed World Champion.
I want to create delicious vegan food that is more than merely fuel for the body but also an experience to savor as well as showing that eating a well-balanced vegan diet can be part of a strong, healthy, vibrant lifestyle.
