Hi, I'm Marlena!
Welcome to my vegan food blog where I create vegan comfort food recipes and my husband takes all the beautiful photos you see!
We live in the outskirts of Los Angeles, CA with our daughter and her pet Netherland Dwarf rabbit.
About Where You Get Your Protein
What you'll find here are simple vegan recipes that use easy-to-find ingredients. What you won't find here are recipes with mock meats and other overly process vegan options.
My family and I try to eat as few overly process foods as possible and it reflects on the blog.
Most of the vegan recipes I create are made with whole foods, yet still full of flavor. All of my family's meals are prepared at home by me so the food's gotta taste good!
I love using dried seasonings to flavor my recipes because they give a consistent taste and, most likely, are in the pantry. So recipes like my Spanish Rice and Jackfruit Tacos are flavored with onion and garlic powder rather than fresh. This also saves time and a trip to the store if you are out of fresh herbs and spices.
I loved comfort foods before going vegan and WYGYP is my place to share those old favorite recipes now made vegan.
Most of my recipes include step-by-step photos and an ingredients shot. I am a visual person so I know how important it is to be able to see each step as well as what is needed to make the recipe.
Stick around and enjoy some delicious vegan food!
