Hi and welcome! I'm Lauren, the blogger, photographer, and recipe developer behind Pinch of Parsley! Here you'll find delicious vegan recipes ranging from healthy meals to decadent sweets. Vegan does not mean less options when it comes to food, I promise!
My goal is to provide you with easy-to-follow recipes that prove that vegan food can be seriously delicious! I'll also be sharing lifestyle posts that hopefully help you navigate the world of veganism and more.
I switched to a vegan lifestyle in July 2019. This switch had originally started because I was trying out the '21 Day Reset' by Kenzie Burke, where she recommends following a vegan, plant-based diet. So that's what I did...and I never looked back. Since then, I have educated myself on veganism and why it's so important for reasons outside of just my body, which has, in turn, altered my motivation for staying vegan.
I started Pinch of Parsley in September 2020 (a positive from that wild year) after realizing everyone around me either didn't know what vegan food was (come on...french fries, gauc, hello?), had this preconceived notion that vegan food was disgusting, or they just didn't know where to start if they wanted to attempt cooking a vegan or plant-based meal. I thought that if people around me don't know, there has got to be other people who feel the exact same way. And so, here we are!
What you'll find on Pinch of Parsley
Pinch of Parsley is a blog dedicated to delicious vegan recipes. Life is all about balance, so you'll find a perfect blend of healthy, plant-based meals, as well as some not-so-healthy comfort food and decadent desserts. Even more, these recipes can range from taking 5 minutes to a few hours (bread, I'm looking at you) to cook, from 1 pot to a kitchen that looks like your cabinet exploded, and to a few ingredients or the whole fridge. It's seriously all here!
I hope you love these recipes as much as I do.
