I’m Bianca; writer, plant-eater, animal lover, fruit junkie, tea drinker, wife, soon-to-be mom, and cat mom. I have a passion for food, writing, and animals. While this will primarily be a space for recipes and tips on a plant-based diet, I’ll also share all the random things that I love – playlists, books, places, home decor, lifestyle tips, and more. I hope you find it interesting and inspiring.
I’ve been thriving off a plant-based diet since 2014, and I’d love to show you just how easy it is to do so. I choose to live this way 1) for the animals, 2) for my health, and 3) for the planet. For me, it’s a happier state of living, and I’ll never look back. I talk more about this here and have provided an extensive list of resources.
Just to be 100% transparent, I do not like to label myself. While I eat mostly vegan, there is the exception of organic/local honey from time to time. I know this can be a heated topic, so that is why I prefer to say plant-based or veg-friendly. I am also not living a 100% vegan lifestyle. I don’t want anyone to be offended by this or misled, so I hope this clears it up. I am doing the very best I can to do the least harm and most good, but I am far from perfect.
For the sake of SEO and the blog content, I will freely use the word vegan to describe recipes without honey. If this offends you, the Friendly Fig may not be the space for you (though I hope you understand!)
I’m a pisces, lover of creativity, color, cooking, baking, cats (especially mine), dark chocolate, tea, rugs, soy lattes, sunflowers, raw amethyst, netflix, music, autumn, alliteration, reading, a good brunch spot, writing lists, plants, whales (especially orcas), outer space, and cosmic everything.
I’m glad you’re here, and I look forward to getting to know your story. xx
