About Me

Hey there! I am Ashley, creator of Plantiful Picnic, a platform I created to share my healthy vegan meals and eco-friendly lifestyle tips. I am vegan for the animals, our environment, and my health.

I have always intense passion towards plastic bags ever since seeing photos of dead sea birds filled with plastic during grade school. Yet at the time, I was still buying packaged food in plastic with no thought. At the beginning of 2018, I learned how to shop zero-waste and have since shopped nearly completely plastic-free. I believe individuals have tremendous power in shaping our planet through everyday choices.

I believe that a healthy lifestyle is key to living your best life and best for the planet . All of my recipes consist of whole plant based ingredients without refined sugars and oils.

When I am not in the kitchen, I enjoy hiking, playing ukulele, and painting pictures of animals. I am always looking for new outdoor adventures, while also learning how I can travel lower-carbon.

You do not have to be perfect to make a difference to our planet, you just have to try your best. I hope you follow along on my journey to reduce waste, eat sustainably, and go on adventures instead of accumulating things.
