Veggie Magnifique | La vie Parisienne, the healthy way.

I’ve found that, the more I embrace making absolutely everything myself, the more self-reliant and Thoreau-esque I feel. However, soy milk was one thing that I had been continuing to buy ready-made. Turning those hard-as-nails yellow beans into a silky white drink always seemed somehow beyond my reach. But that was last week. I’ve officially expanded ...

Life is full of contrasts. Just over a week ago I was squiggling my toes in the sand, warm winds were knocking off my straw hat, and I was basking in the glow of new friendly faces and foreign lands. This week, however, I’m helping my parents move into their new house in the freezing ...

Witnessing babies grow is perhaps the most palpable way to realize just how quickly the sand is dropping ...

We’ve said it before, but one of our deepest joys with Veggie Magnifique is the wonderful people we get to meet. Violaine Bergoin is one of those charming souls that we have encountered thanks to the blog. Her bubbly kindness belies her awesome creative talent (you may remember her delectable Raw Vegan Snickers), and she is ...
