May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
We all create our own reality, and our realities are intertwined with those of every other being on Earth. I’m creating my own reality based on ahimsa (non-violence) in my thoughts, words and actions. This is why I choose to be vegan, to spread non-violence throughout my reality and the realities of all beings on this Earth. Big results come from many small changes accumulated over time – the Japanese principle of kaizen – and I believe we can reach a world of ahimsa by all collectively making small changes towards it within our own realities.
Hey! I’m Susie and I’m The Hippie Cook!
I’m a Gold Coast (Australia) vegan girl promoting a healthy, happy and cruelty-free lifestyle by sharing my recipes, knowledge, advice and tips with the world! I’m extremely passionate about animal welfare and the environment and strive to lead a cruelty-free, socially and environmentally conscious lifestyle. I am a creative cook, Health Science graduate, ex medical student, passionate vegan, avid animal lover, environmentalist and yogi!
I’ve always been passionate about cooking and food. I’ve been creating beautiful, delicious meals ever since I can remember! Or maybe ever since I was old enough to realise I didn't like Mum’s cooking and started to make my own… Sorry Mum, love you!
My passion for food has only flourished since becoming vegan at the start of 2013. This forced me to experiment with unique flavours and food combinations, and become more creative in my recipe creations.
I want EVERYONE to realise the full potential of plant-based food. Vegan food does not have to be boring! In fact the most amazing food I’ve had in my life has been vegan!
My favourite pastime is to cook beautiful, delectable plant-based dishes for non-vegans and watch them as they marvel in the spectacular flavours. When I create recipes, my goal is to achieve a dish that does not ‘taste vegan’. So I promise you that not only vegans, but vegetarians and omnivores also, will all love my recipes!
Welcome to my page, a collection of some of my favourite recipes (a preview of what to expect in my upcoming recipe E-books), and my blog where I write about topics such as food, the environment, minimalism, veganism, health, yoga, travelling, and other helpful bits and pieces.
