GET TO KNOW THE CREATORS

Why we love doing what we do and how the whole food plant based diet & lifestyle motivated us to run a website

Hello there, we are Lars & Alena, a young couple from Germany that’s enthusiastic about healthy eating and living. Our love for plant-based food, good music, travelling, independence, and positive thinking has brought us together and inspired us to build a website filled with our expertise and passion. Ever since we turned our lives around with the help of whole, plant foods and a positive mindset, we are eager to spread the message of health and wellbeing.

We bundled our knowledge in the base section of our website, as well as in weekly blog posts where we address the most common questions we get from our readers. Especially for those new to the whole food plant-based world, we created an entirely free email course with plenty of tips on starting a healthy vegan diet and succeeding in the long run. On top of that, we’re happy to help you out via email. So no matter how small or big your concern may be, feel free to drop us a line and we will do our best to support you.

When we’re not studying or working on our computers, you can find us on a tennis court or yoga mat, making music, preparing awesome meals, or exploring the world.

LARS

graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in computer science and media and is responsible for all things design, programming, and planning on this website. Spending 1 year abroad in Australia was an eye-opening experience where he discovered his love for travelling and living minimalistically. He’s been a vegetarian since childhood but it was only at the age of 20 (at the beginning of 2010) when he first got interested in living a healthy lifestyle and started to become fully vegan.

Since then he’s been constantly experimenting and looking for new insights to tweak his lifestyle for optimal health. Besides being fueled by whole, plant foods only, he refuses to put on a label of one particular diet. That being said, you can find him eating rather starch-based in the winter and more fruit-based in the summer. Pretty much going with the flow and not being too dogmatic.

His lifestyle and diet change resulted in:
  • lean and muscular body
  • clear and glowing skin
  • stronger hair
  • better energy and focus
  • more confidence & better thoughts
  • strong immune system
  • tons of motivation to explore the world and live life to the fullest

ALENA

is a young student who has been enjoying training in the fields of nutrition, music therapy, and social work. She is the heart and soul behind all the social media accounts, loves to respond to emails, and uses her drive to constantly learn and educate in order to write her articles. Her main goal is to help people find joy and peace around nutrition, and to become whole. She has a strong passion for feminist and inequality issues, self-development, as well as living peacefully and respectfully with one another.

Alena has been a vegetarian since childhood, and a primarily whole food, plant-based eater for 5 years. Her love for sweet fruit and satisfying starches, as well as green veggies and the occasional chocolate keep her happy, healthy and balanced. After trying out different vegan diets, she decided to make up her own way of eating – backed up both by science and her body.

Her lifestyle and diet change resulted in:
  • weight loss
  • better skin and shiny hair
  • mastering unhealthy cravings & making peace with food
  • overcoming anxiety and depression
  • more energy & drive to move around
  • overall happiness and confidence
  • tons of motivation to explore the world and live life to the fullest
