THE BLOG

More Than Greens is a vegetarian vegan food, travel and lifestyle blog.

Created back in 2012, it was a way to share a love of food, showing the world that vegetarians don’t just live on “rabbit food” (aka “greens”).

However, what began as a place to post some pretty basic recipes, along with the occasional restaurant review or food-related ramblings, grew into somewhere to share everything within the veggie lifestyle.

You’ll find a whole range of topics here; from delicious food, cruelty-free beauty, and eco-friendly living, to animals and nature, travel and exploration.

Whether you’re a fully-fledged vegan or a veg-curious omnivore, you’re more than welcome here. Although you may come across the odd opinion piece on this site, I practise but don’t preach veganism.

I just want to share what I love and if that happens to open someone’s mind to the possibility of a meat-free or meat-reduced lifestyle along the way, well… that’s just a bonus!

THE BLOGGER

More Than Greens ProfileHi, I’m Sarah and I’m a twenty thirty-something British-Australian who moved from Sydney to London in 2009.

I’m passionate about travel and I try to explore the world as much as possible, with particular interest in nature, culture, and culinary delights.

I’ve been a vegan since January 2018 and a vegetarian since my late teens. After a sketchy experience with a cheeseburger, I decided that I really didn’t want to eat meat any more; I haven’t since and I have never missed it. No, not even bacon.

Since starting this blog and becoming more involved in the online veggie and vegan communities, being vegetarian became about more than just being meat-free. I shifted to cruelty-free and vegan beauty in 2013, gave up eggs and switched to vegan-only baking in 2015, gradually reduced my dairy intake over the years, and eventually went 100% vegan in 2018.

This blog has also ignited a passion for photography. Although I’m still very much developing my skills and knowledge, I have come a long way since the frankly appalling photography of my earlier posts! If you find yourself in the depths of the blog archive, please don’t judge too harshly…

Although it may have started with a bad burger, the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle is now something that I’m really passionate about for a multitude of reasons: animal rights, environmental issues, and health to name a few. I am much more educated about the cause and the lifestyle than I was over a decade ago but I’m continually learning.

I love to cook and bake and although I’m no Jamie Oliver or Isa Chandra, I’ve been told that I’m a bit of all right at both. Even by meat-eaters.
