About

Welcome to VeeDine Intervention! I am so glad you stopped by.

My name is Cristal and I am a 21-year-old Management and Media & Communication student living in South Africa. I started VeeDine Intervention roughly a year after deciding to adopt a vegan diet and noticing that, although there are many great tools and resources available to vegans online, they are mainly geared towards  American and Canadian audiences. Needless to say different countries have different levels of accessibility to certain foods, and spending hours scouting for foreign (and expensive) ingredients in health stores or sifting through recipe after recipe to find something suitable just didn’t appeal to me. So this is me bringing some South African inspiration to vegan food!

The purpose of VeeDine Intervention:

  • To create and share healthy, delicious plant-based meals using ingredients that are readily available in South Africa at reasonable prices.
  • To equip and inspire other South Africans, and people worldwide, to lead a balanced, productive vegan-oriented lifestyle through sharing my own experiences and providing valuable hints, tips and health-related information.
  • To share everyday moments as well as significant experiences from all walks of my life – encouraging balance and diversity (Food is fantastic, but so are many other things in life!)
  • To experiment, discover new things, rejoice in successes, share and learn from failures, and most importantly, to have FUN!

I strive to carry out this purpose through blogging about recipes I have attempted, products, shops and restaurants I have encountered, health and fitness goals I pursue and helpful resources and developments I come across. 

It is my sincere hope that VeeDine Intervention will be a resource which will assist others embarking on this journey of veganism and give them the assistance and encouragement I wish I had when I first started out.

Please feel free to contact me and leave comments – I place a high value on reader input and hope this blog will be a collaborative effort . Your comments, questions, tips and requests will help me to help you! So let us embark on this journey together and make affordable, fun and easy vegan living in South Africa a reality.
