About

Welcome to The Gluten Free Vegan blog.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Megan. My friends call me Megs. You can too.

I don’t eat animals. I eat plants. (Yes, that means I’m a vegan.)

I consider myself a foodie (but not one of those annoying kind who say ridiculous things like mouth-feel) and I love to cook.  I like to try new things and explore in the kitchen. My eyes light up when I talk about food, especially good food. I have a passion for food, cooking, and writing. So, naturally, here I am writing about the food that I cook. I might sound picky when I rant about food, but it’s really just that passion coming through.

I have big hair. It may end up in your food. Consider this a blessing and embrace it, as I’ve been told my hair is pretty great.

I’m married. His name is Levi.

Levi

Levi has a ton of food intolerances.  He has Celiac Disease and Dermatitis Herpeteformis. But don’t worry he’s actually pretty nice.

We manage his health by following a very strict allergen-free diet free from his known intolerances:

  • gluten
  • dairy
  • eggs
  • red meat

So our household is gluten-free and vegan. I thought there weren’t many out there like us, but surprisingly there are others like us. I love it.

Megan & Levi

We live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (that’s in Canada) with our cat Kato and our dogs Kannon & Sophie. (I really need to get an awkward family photo of us posing with all three of our animals while wearing tacky sweaters to display here.)

My mission is to prove that it’s really not as difficult as people think to feed Levi (or anyone for that matter) healthy and super-tasty food that won’t make him sick.

This blog had a life as a completely gluten-free and completely vegan blog for a period of about one year.  I began eating meat for about a year and found myself feeling generally lousy. So, I’ve returned to a strict vegan lifestyle. This blog is consistently gluten-free, always.  And, vegan too. There are a few non-vegan recipes from those meaty months lingering around on this blog too.

Aside from those shady meat-eating months of old, you will find only vegan and only gluten-free morsels of foodtastic heaven on this blog. All gluten-free, all vegan, all the time.

You can also expect to find made-up words, general tomfoolery, and a bit of attitude just for kicks.
