Welcome to the Bed Stuy Foodie! I’m Megan. I started this blog after reading The Happiness Project and being inspired to do something creative. I really love cooking, taking pictures of food, and of course, eating!
I am what I call “a weekday vegan”. I try to eat vegan during the week. I have been strictly vegan before, but it leaves me feeling restricted and I miss good cheese! After spending a few weeks in France, I really learned to enjoy good, fatty, and tasty foods in moderation. I really enjoy this lifestyle because I feel good about eating healthy most of the time and so I don’t feel so guilty about splurging on some non-vegan food on the weekends. I am able to enjoy some of the great restaurants in Brooklyn, or eat dinner at a friend’s house without having to avoid most of the food.
My recipes are mostly vegan. I find vegan cooking incredibly fun and creative. I love thinking of how to make other dishes vegan. Living in Brooklyn, I am exposed to so much amazing food and so I will often see an amazing non-vegan dish and then try to make a healthier vegan version for the weekdays.
I hope you enjoy the recipes! Please let me know through comments what you have tried or what you would like to see made vegan. Enjoy!
