Hi, and welcome to 🥁drumroll🥁 our first blog post.
Thank you so much for clicking the link to read this – it means a lot! We’ll try to keep it short and sweet as we know time is precious.
Whether you are vegan or not, we hope that you enjoy the Happy Vegan Living community.
We are 100% volunteer run, so we do this in our “spare” time (ha! What is that?) between working full time, and generally living life. We won’t ever ask for donations to run the page, and we want you to know that. Your company is enough for us ❤.
We find people assume we must be activists or health buffs or gluten free (what’s with that?). Online it can be quite a minefield of graphic images and heated arguments. To make matters worse, there is also a lot of confusing information about what veganism really is. Not to mention vegans arguing with vegans making it hard for newcomers.
We can’t help but wonder, is this helping animals? Is this helping vegans? Is this helping people to become vegan?
Cue Happy Vegan Living.
As the name suggests, we are Happy, we are Vegans, and at the time of publishing, we are Living 😂.
We have created this space for both vegans and for people thinking of going vegan that is positive and friendly. As we mentioned above, this is a community, not a business. We share ethical vegan education, (always minus the graphic imagery), recipes and vegan businesses and events.
You’ll see the words “easy” and “quick” on our recipes (we work full time remember!). We do apologise in advance for our bad food pics. The meals we post are our meals, if a photo is standing between us and eating, the photo is going to lose each time! In saying that, we think our recipes are actually pretty good, so we do hope you give them a go and enjoy them.
Supporting vegan/100% plant-based business and events is important to us. Please know that we do not receive any “kick-backs” or freebies from the businesses we share. Sometimes we will have visited as paying customers, and others we have become aware of online. If you know of or run a vegan business or event you would like us to share on our pages, we would love to hear about it.
This is a space we have created for you, so if there are other things you want to see on the page, please get in touch with us.
Thanks for reading our first blog post! Love it? Hate it? Don’t care? Let us know anyway – contact us via our social pages or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
