About me

demiHi! My name is Dimitra.  I live in Greece and I love cats, food and music. I started this blog so I can share with you my favorite vegan recipes. I went plant based in 2006 and this was a decision I took when Peanut, my cat, got really sick and had to do 6 surgeries in one year period. I was so depressed during that time and it got me thinking. Why do I love one animal and eat another? So that was it! I don’t eat, wear or use any animal product. I am vegan and I can’t think of any reason why I shouldn’t be!

This isn’t a fat free cooking blog. I believe that vegan food is great for our health. Animal foods are higher in fat than plant foods. No need to mention that they are packed with saturated fats and cholesterol. Meat and dairy is also responsible for cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis and many many more diseases. So, what else? I love almonds and coconuts. And avocados!  Some of you might say these are high in fat, so maybe not that healthy! Yet it is healthy unrefined fat that our bodies need in order to get the essential fatty acids.

Besides cooking (and eating) vegan food, I love drinking good craft beer, rollerblading, pilates, reading books, watching movies (if you have anything to suggest shout it) and going to rock concerts! And traveling. A lot!

  1. Hi Demi,

    I really like your blog! I am so glad it is in English so I can read it. I am looking forward to seeing more of your recipes. I really like fruits and vegetables. If I see something I really like, I just might cook one day!


  2. Glad I found this great site! I just started a blog about Tasty Tofu Recipes and hope to make it into a great resource by adding tons of tofu recipes.
    Please check it out and submit your own to the database if you would like to help the cause.


  3. I want to make this tomorrow, and I don’t have any tofu. Can I substitute it with something?
    I really like your blog by the way! Great recipes, cute cats ;)


  4. So glad to find your blog! I’m Greek too and planning on coming to Greece in the summer with my family. I was wondering how easy is it to find things like tofu or flax seed, cocconut or soy milk and the like in Greece. Are they only in specialty stores in Athens or can be available in national super market chains? Thanks! Katerina.


  5. I just found your blog following the awesome burger picture on findingvegan.com. I love it! I am going to see if you have any awesome vegan Greek recipes since I love Greek food.


    1. Hi Federika and thanks for following! I have quite a few vegan greek recipes on my blog but I often post Greek vegan recipes on onegreenplanet.org so check that site too!


  6. Finally, I found a vegan Greek food blog! Ever since going to Greece I’ve fallen in love with Mediterranean food, but haven’t been successful in finding veganised versions of what I had there(since I went pre-vegetarianism). You have no idea how much finding a vegan recipe of a Greek souvlaki and tzatziki has made my day!


  7. Yassou Dimitra! I am sooo excited to have found your blog, as I adore Greece and Greek food (I’m Norwegian, but currently live in NY – and spent several summers there while growing up and will go back later this year). This is such an amazing resource with wonderful recipes.. Thank you for sharing !! Look forward to following you! Sunny :)
