My Story

Hello! My name is Charmaine Simmons. I am a 25-year-old vegan chef/recipe creator who resides in Chicago. 

I became vegan in March 2016 after my aunt was battling stage 4 colon cancer. I wanted to learn how the food we decide to put in our bodies effect us in terms of physical and mental health. My studies led me to becoming vegan which helped heal my depression and anxiety. Plus, I lost 40+ pounds during my first year being vegan as well.

Becoming vegan opened my eyes to the art of cooking and creating delicious recipes that are good for your soul. I decided to leave the fashion and beauty industry to venture into the food industry. Being new to the industry is scary yet exciting at the same time.

This site is for the new vegans who don't know what to cook, the older vegans who possibly just want to switch it up with new recipes, or even the meat-eater who want to add more plant-based meals into their lives. 

I share my recipes, my YouTube content, and bits of my life on here. Hope you enjoy!
