Hello and welcome to my blog. Nice to have you here!
My name is Conny, I’m a young woman of 34, a skilled laboratory assistant, outside sales person, passionate foodie, Instagram lover, allergy sufferer, stubborn, emotional person, best friend,
soon-to-be drop-out and much more….
So, why am I starting a blog now?
I love cooking! For many years I have been into nutrition and tried out everything from Low Carb to Paleo to Intermittent Fasting and 2.5 years ago I started a vegan diet for health reasons.
The best decision I ever made in my entire life! I noticed how many benefits this kind of diet has for people and the environment and it helped me to overcome my eating disorder that I suffered from for several years.
On my Instagram account Plantbased_food_and_travel I post my simple, vegan dishes on a daily basis, all under the slogan #simplyconny. This gives me the opportunity to express my passion and I discovered how much fun it is to nicely arrange my food and take a photo. My aim is to get as many people as possible interested in a healthy plant-based diet and demonstrate how easy it can be to have a wholesome and balanced meal, also without animals suffering. Here you can find all my recipes and I am already looking forward to trying out many more new things and becoming ever more creative.
For about 3 years I have suffered from different food intolerances and really had to learn to listen to my body again. In the beginning, this was so very hard and I did not enjoy cooking anymore.
But now, it is fun for me again to try out something new, I enjoy eating again as I know what foods I tolerate and what I am allergic to. It was a year-long process.
I cook with simple ingredients, without refined sugar, soy – and mostly gluten-free. From time to time I also eat a little treat or something sweet. It’s all about balance.
With this blog, I would like to help other people facing the same situation who fight against an eating disorder, struggle with allergies or are just interested in a healthy, plant-based diet.
And apart from that?
I mainly write this blog to share my recipes, but of course life has a lot more to offer and I am interested in many other things, which get me excited and move me. For that reason, I will also share with you bit by bit some personal contents and thoughts, tell you my story and whatever comes to my mind.
Apart from cooking I love travelling. In recent years I missed out on that a little bit, even though I was travelling a lot for work. My eating disorder, the allergies and a lot of stress kept me from really enjoying my life. But that will change in the end of this year. Then I will start a great adventure heading for Canada and I want to use this blog to take you along on my journey and tell you about my experiences.
It’s gonna be exciting and I am really looking forward to it!
Lots of love ❤️
