In 2008, after moving from Brazil to Ireland, I decided to create a blog to write about my new adventures into vegan food in Europe and have created the blog All About… (Vegan) Food. It was the beginning of a new era in my life, living far from my home town for the first time, and having the chance to travel more around and trying new places and products.
I’m a journalist and couldn’t find better way to share my adventures with the others. I’ve being vegan for 15 years now and the only experience I had before was about how to be vegan in Brazil and, believe me, it’s really different from being vegan in Europe or in the US. Not because of the reason, I’m vegan for ethical reasons, but because of the food and that’s why I wanted to write about everything.
Four years later and after one year of having left the page a little not that active after having my first baby and moved to Rome, I’ve decided to dedicate to it again and use all my professional skills to make it not a blog anymore, but a website about vegan food and the other aspects of veganism. Veganism is a life choice, a choice for life and respect and it goes far beyond a dietary choice. This page is still focused in the food, recipes and how to raise a vegan child, and also our new projects for this space, but I want to make clear that I’ll try to write about animal rights too because to me it is the biggest part of being vegan.
From February 5th 2013 we are also home of the first international VEGAN PACKAGE SWAP! We are really happy and excited about this project and hope you can join us if you still haven’t! First swap took place in March 2013.
Vegans have been swapping packages full of goodies for a long time. Now you can join the first international project of vegan package swaps! All About Vegan Food is pleased to introduce you to Vegan Package Swap, a worldwide project that will blow your mind and make you try vegan goodies from all over the world each month.
To be part of the Vegan Package Swap all you need to do is to register to the project and you’ll receive emails with the next steps.
Each month you will receive a confirmation email, so we know for sure that you are up to take part of it every time. If you want to skip one month, that’s totally fine, you’ll get another confirmation email in the following month. After confirming the participation, you will get another email with the details of the person to whom you will be sending a package.
We are not the first vegan swap project but what makes us different is that you can choose to ship worldwide or just to your own continent. Choosing to ship worldwide will give you the opportunity to try even more unique and different goodies that you might never find at your country or of which existence you had no idea! It\’s important to remember that if you choose to ship just to your continent you will have less people to pair up each month.
And to make things even more exciting, you can specify in your profile if you want to include other things besides food, like cosmetics or makeup, for example! It\’s all about getting a great package every month!
Each swap will be evaluated by the users so we can keep the quality of it and make sure that everybody is getting packages that follow the rules.
