A film student that shares her passion for wellbeing on instagram


F&D: As a vegan, what is something you want people to know about your food choices?

Claudia: It’s delicious! So many people are under the misconception being vegan means boring rabbit food. But I love my food and I couldn’t stick to anything that took that away from me!

F&D: What are some food recommendations you have for people looking to incorporate vegan dishes into their diets?

Claudia: My biggest recommendation is to make sure you are eating enough; plant foods are often a lot less calorie dense so you need to eat more.

F&D: Although you have said you tend not to measure ingredients, will you be putting together recipes for your followers of some of your creations and favorite dishes?

Claudia: I definitely want to share more recipes but for me, the fun of cooking is experimenting with different flavors and not sticking to any rules.
