I am a psychology student, who likes to travel, explore and is a passionate sports junkie (calistenics, poledance, running, muay thai). Theater, books and museums are also things that move me and I like to enjoy. I have been a vegan since 2011 and became a vegeterian by my own choice, when I was 7 years old. I come from a culture where eating meat is a big part of a daily life, something I could never accept myself.

More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I do not believe that it is my right to decide who lives or who dies, and I am in no higher position to judge over the lives or who dies. To me, all creatures in this world have the right to live, be you a cat, a cow, or a human.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

For my every day diet I like to keep my food simple, healthy and clean. I eat a lot of raw vegetables and fuits and plant-based protein sources like tofu, seitan or tempeh, which supports my lifestyle as a very dedicated athlete. On the other hand I love to explore new places, cultures and the dishes that come with them. When I travel or have a cheat day I love to try whatever raises my appettite. In that period, it's not important if the meal has the right nutritional values, it's about the art of food itself. The creativity and authenticity are the things that attract me. Basically I joined happy cow to share my experiences with the vegan community, since I know how ardous it can be to find a good vegan restaurant when travelling. Dissapointment of a promise for a proper vegan meal (breakfast for example), and ending up with a slice of dry bread, salad and a slice of a fruit is something that infuriates me. Pizza without cheese, salad with vinegar etc. are just a lazy way of marketing yourself as a vegan place. In my opinion that is not the proper way to present the vegan culture, because a vegan dish isn't about leaving things out of a meal, it's about recreating it and enhancing it!

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:

I prefer Metropolises: New York, Vienna, Prague. In a small village, if you ask for soy milk, they look at you like you're from a different planet; life as a vegan is easier and so much more diverse in big cities. I'm still hoping to see Barcelona, London, Tokyo and to experience the culture of Africa.

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

For my everyday life, it's the fresh salads, raw vegan foods and curries. For cheat days on the other hand, I love desserts, my own baked goods, which I didn't like as a kid since eggs digusted me. Trying out things in restaurants as well, especially cheesecake (I could imagine killing over it). Veganized authentic traditional dishes, but I also enjoy a chefs creativity; go on, surprise me! Especially things I can't make myself everyday at home, things that need a lot of care or preparation, like sushi, pizza or ice cream. Mochi is the best example, it's very hard to make myself, but devilishly delicious and tempting!

Here are some books, movies, magazines, and my favorites that I would recommend to other HappyCow members:

If you already vegan, i would not recommend anything; what is the point of torturing yourself about something you already conceive in this way? One of the most interesting shorts I've ever heard (in german) is by Samsas Traum, and is called "20 Schritte Freiheit". As a kid I found Animal Farm by George Orwell fascinating; even though it is not about veganism, for me it portrayed animals judging over the lives of other animals, which seems to lead to the conclusion that we are all nothing but animals. We're all on the same plane. One thing I'd recommend for any non-vegan is the movie "earthlings", because it portraits the cruelty of our world amazingly well.
