About Me

My name is Angela and I am a vegan foodie. Over the past few years, I've been traveling across the country seeking to experience vegan food at its best and I started this blog in May of 2011 to share those experiences with you. I enjoy food so much that I schedule my vacations around the restaurants and grocery stores I desire to visit. But, I don't just enjoy consuming vegan culinary delights, I also enjoy creating them. In September of 2010, I completed a certificate program at the School of Natural Cookery in Boulder, CO. I was so inspired by that school that I now create my own masterpieces, which I will also share on this site. 

Since then, I have become a certified Food for Life instructor for PCRM, which allows me to teach cooking and nutrition classes focused on cancer prevention, diabetes prevention, and weight loss.

I became vegetarian over 20 years ago (and am now vegan) so I’ve seen a lot of things change – mostly in the quality and quantity of vegan food products. It amazes me how much advancement has been made in vegan products over the past 20 years! I promise to scour the grocery stores around the globe to find the best products to share with you.

I also have a weakness for fine wine. I completed a local course in wine and have been to Sonoma and Napa Valley several times. So, I’ll incorporate reviews of fine wine in this blog as well.

And then there is the chocolate. I am a bit of a chocolate fanatic. I love, love, love all things chocolate!

So, there you have it – the premise of my blog. I will be providing a foodie perspective of vegan cuisine, chocolat, and vino! Please feel free to drop me a line to let me know what you think at any time! My email is angela [at] theveraciousvegan [dot] com.

  6. There are so many vegan snack bars! I love ProBars which are more like meal replacement bars, Health Warrior chia bars, Earnest Eats bars, OneBar fruit bars, and Larabars. But, I could probably name 20 others that I love too!

  7. Hi Angela, Just found your site while looking for more veg/vegan information about DC restaurants. I wanted to recommend to you a new place that just opened up in College Park, MD called Ovo Simply Veggie. It's has Pan-Asian flavors, and is vegan (to my knowledge, including the wonton wrappers). Looking forward to seeing your review of it? http://www.yelp.com/biz/ovo-simply-veggie-college-park
