Hi! I am Karissa, the compassionate blogger behind Vegan À La Mode. I created Vegan À La Mode to show that food and fashion can be delightfully cruelty-free. You’ll find chic looks that are free from animal materials and delicious recipes that are completely vegan. All of my recipes are also gluten-free as well due to my gluten intolerance. I believe in following a wholesome plant-based diet that relies solely on natural ingredients. I hope that all of the food I share on here makes you feel as well-nourished and energized as they make me feel! My goal isn’t to convert anyone to veganism but rather to emphasize on the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. Whether or not you are vegan, I hope my fashion and food posts inspire you to live a healthier, compassionate life.
I believe that fashion and food should serve a purpose; the food we consume should nourish our bodies while the clothing we wear should be friendly to both animals and the planet. While I would love to have a 100% eco-friendly ethical wardrobe, it’s unfortunately a difficult challenge given I only shop cruelty-free so I prefer to balance my wardrobe. You will notice I mix sustainable pieces with sometimes conventionally produced clothing items. I am always on the lookout for affordable eco brands with cruelty-free clothing so you will find many posts on those under the eco-friendly tag.
I believe in a balanced lifestyle. We all deserve to indulge every now and then; I choose to make those indulgences vegan to keep with my cruelty-free lifestyle. I don’t believe in being restrictive so you won’t find any calorie or carb counts in my recipes. As far as fashion goes, I also try to stay balanced with a minimalistic approach to my wardrobe. I love simplicity which is why you might mostly find me wearing a dress with just a couple of accessories. I love fashion but don’t believe you have to be decked out in all the trendiest items to look chic. Wear what makes you happy and you will look your best Be sure to check out my vegan wardrobe essentials post if you’re just getting started with a vegan wardrobe!
