Hey there, I'm Mel!
I'm a long time vegan of 11+ years, business owner, momma, wife & passionate vegan chef. I'm here to help you incorporate delicious vegan food into your life, whether you're also a long time vegan, newbie vegan, vegetarian or just looking to cut down on your meat consumption! Not sure how you feel about vegan food? That's where I come in. I'm known for veganizing the "classics", and creating vegan food that everybody can get behind!
You might know me from my former and beloved vegan restaurant in Kanata, ON, Grow Your Roots. While the brick-and-mortar GYR is no longer, I'm still here to bring delicious vegan food to your plate. Whether it's through my favourite vegan recipes found here, or through my new business, Grow Your Roots Foods, I'm here to make vegan eating accessible, practical, crowd-pleasing and tasty.
