Hi, I’m Waz! I’m a graphic designer and cat lady based in Portland, Oregon. I write about all things veggie, from restaurant reviews, to vegetarian recipes, to local events and lifestyle. I also lead the Portland chapter of Veganizer.
Formerly known as Let’s Nom Nom, this blog has followed my food adventures since I moved to New York City in 2011. Over the years, I’ve gone from flexitarian to vegetarian to vegan, and my blog has come along with me on that journey. A plant-based diet is healthier and kinder to my body, to animals, and to our environment. The best way to win omnivores over is by raising awareness of the positive effects of the plant-based movement and by celebrating great food that just so happens to be vegan.
This is not a strictly vegan blog with a capital “V”. If you dig back far enough, you’ll find old posts back when I would eat meat about once a month. While you won’t find meat on my plate nowadays, you may see the occasional omnivore dish here as I do dine out with non-vegan friends, and I’m a fan of restaurants that can accommodate everyone. If the future really is vegan, we won’t get there by isolating ourselves from omnivores. Instead, we need to work together and have some real conversations about our food.
