About Me

Hi! I am Danae Dade, mama of Frankie & Bowie, wife of Ben and avocado lover. I am on a mission to get people to eat more vegetables! Vegan food is more than just bean salad and kale, (even though I love all of those things). I love comforting, wholesome meals with loads of different flavours and textures. Our vegan sweet treats are made with unrefined sugars and flours, and all natural ingredients. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy. I encourage people to play with their food, and explore how satisfying plantbased meals are!
