About She Eats

Hey, welcome to She Eats.

Vancouver Food Photographer & Food Stylist - Vancouver Food BloggerShe Eats launched in the fall of 2010 as a response to the horrors I learned about the industrial food system – environmental abuses, animal welfare, human rights violations. It scared the bujezus outta me!

The bujezus.

So She Eats started to help share the information and to help you, help the planet. Since then my digestive system has switched teams a few times – carnivore to blind vegetarian to ethical eater. Now I eat grass fed meat, locally organic produce and I do my darn-tootin’ damndest to not buy anything with a nutritional claim or a label on it. Except when it comes to the occasional (and necessary) bag of sugar. Because cake.

These days I like to keep things simple. Occasionally I share tools or books that inspire me and make your journey in the kitchen more fun. Usually though I create recipes you can easily source from the farmer’s market, local butcher or CSA and make at home. No matter what though, you get my unabashed sense of humor and lots of embarrassing stories like getting my hoo-haa stung by wasps and smashing my face into glass walls.

Some of the recipes here are quick and easy (like me), others are a bit more technical. Most aren’t made with overly-processed ingredients (cake is always an exception) and I suggest you do the same. Use the best quality ingredients your pocket book can afford and always use full-fat because the total yum factor of a finished dish is entirely dependent on the yum factor of the ingredients you use. Because of that, most of the recipes here take a bit of time to prepare. What you’ll end up with though are dishes so flavourful, even Flava Flav would shut up, sit down and eat.

As my ass can attest to, I’m a full fat kinda gal. And around here, we like it that way.
