As the founder of Plant Based Folk (PBF), I started this blog in late 2019 to share my passion for creating delicious vegan Lebanese recipes. Over the years, my blog has steadily grown and I now have tens of thousands of followers across various social media platforms, thanks to my unique take on classic Lebanese food which I have turned into mouthwatering homestyle cooking.

Discover Authentic Vegan Lebanese Recipes
I believe in the power of food to bring people together and make positive changes in our lives.
That's why I'm committed to sharing my love of vegan Lebanese cuisine with as many people as possible.
Why Vegan Lebanese Recipes?
I started changing my diet in 2017, I went from eating “whatever” to eating vegan / plant-based meals.
I am a second-generation Aussie, born and bred in Sydney Australia with a Lebanese background.
Having grown up on Lebanese food, with amazing cooks within my family, I absolutely adore the flavors and am thrilled to have been able to easily convert the dishes into vegan-friendly ones.
FYI, I want to point out that Lebanese cuisine is already filled with many vegetable-based meals.
Although I specialize in vegan Lebanese recipes, you can find all types of vegan recipes on my blog.
But why did I go plant-based?
Simple. It was my health.
I have a goiter and multiple nodules on my thyroid, and when I couldn’t get the answers I needed conventionally, I learned to turn to my food.
My symptoms (including but not limited to; nausea, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, aches and pains, brain fog, and insomnia ...) have been manageable through food.
Sometimes I turn to cleansing (every once in a while), and this has had a positive impact. You can read my experience with cleansing here Advanced 3:6:9 Cleanse Review
Personally, I try to always maximize the diversity of foods I eat each week. To keep my gut happy. Hence, why you'll note a variety of ingredients used throughout my recipes.
