About Claire Kannemeyer

Hey you! My name's Claire & I'm the no-nonsense kind of vegan. Growing up in Botswana & living out my 20s out in the Valley of the Drakensberg gave me such an appreciation for nature & for treading as lightly as possible while I'm here. Plus I just freaking LOVE eating plants. Nothing makes me happier than taking childhood favourites (that were packed full of butter & sugar, mom!) and transforming them into something my body will thank me for later. Think of me as your go-to vegan friend, sharing recipes & tips, without beating around the bush. Unless it's a Rosemary bush, in which case let's dive right in, honey!
