My name is Karin and this is my little corner where I like to share my thoughts, simple recipes, book faves and travel experiences.
I live in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria, and I’m interested in everything veganism & health related.
I’m a big foodie and just recently discovered my passion for cooking. I like to try out new things in the kitchen, but most of the time I enjoy very simple dishes. So any shared recipes will probably be rather basic (which, at least, makes recreating them easier, right? ^^).
I’ve been fully vegan since January 2016, but vegetarian/mostly vegan for some time before that. The ethical aspect was the main reason for me to transition to a plant-based lifestyle, but lately I’ve been focussing more and more on the health benefits as well. I’m hoping to cure my thyroid and hormonal issues by following a whole foods plant-based diet. However, I still enjoy the occasional chocolate & fast food – it’s just too darn delicious 😀 Veganism is about more than only food, though. I try to avoid animal products as best as I can and live a more sustainabe life in general.
Mental health issues have also been a big part of my life. I’ve been struggling with depression & anxiety for as long as I can remember. Only slowly am I finding my way towards a healthier state of mind and more balance in my life. I’m convinced that focussing on self-love, defining & setting priorities and not letting others define what matters most to you is the way to go.
I’m also a huge book nerd and love being surrounded by books. I just wish I had more time to read (definitely need to make that a priority again). There’s nothing like getting lost in a story or another world ~ ~ ~
I’m in love with traveling and seeing what the world has to offer, so whenever I get the chance I visit new (and old) places and explore new things – which hasn’t been a lot lately, but I’m hoping for more adventures in the future and I can’t wait to share them with you 🙂
You’re more than welcome to stay and follow along on my journey to a better health & self!
