I am Anne, but I go by my nickname Peppa. I am a happy German American girl who loves to eat & travel. On my blog I share recipes for healthy plant-based food and travel tips. Some of the older recipes you find on my blog are vegetarian instead of vegan, which has to do with the fact that I started this blog as a vegetarian who then turned vegan.
My fascination with food began about 5 years ago. I lived in Stockholm at that time, and enjoyed getting a glimpse into the Swedish culture. I then realized that I wanted to do something with food, and enrolled myself into a well respected culinary school in California. Once I was done with the program, I moved to New York City, and did my internship at one of New York City's top restaurants. Living in one of the world's most exciting cities was quite an adventure.
However, after a while I started to miss my family, who lived back in Germany. So I decided to go back in order to be with them. I then opened a cozy, little cafe in Heidelberg called Peppa Jane. After 1 1/2 years I came to the conclusion that this was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I closed my sweet, little cafe, and started the next chapter of my life. I initially created this blog to share recipes for sinfully, delicious, vegetarian comfort food.
But after watching a couple of food documentaries on Netflix ("What the Heath", "Food Choices", "Forks Over Knives", "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and "Cowspiracy") I was shocked to hear that cancer, and other diseases are strongly linked to eating animal products. So, I decided to take my blog into a different direction - a healthy one. I now share healthy and delicious plant-based recipes that are full of good things. I hope you enjoy going on this healthy journey with me:-)
