About

I'm Claire- the face behind Almost skinny Vegan Food. I'm a photographer/artist and secondary school Art teacher living in Melbourne, Australia.
I love developing new recipes, cooking, photographing and sharing healthy vegan food with others. You'll find a multitude of nutritious, delicious, quick, easy, low fat, vegan recipes on this blog.

I eat a vegan, whole food, plant based, nutrient dense diet. The majority of my diet is vegetables and fruits with small quantities of nuts and seeds and gluten free grains. I eat a large quantity of my food raw but do enjoy cooked foods too. There are a multitude of delicious recipes to enjoy within these guidelines so I never feel as though I'm missing out- quite the opposite actually!

I'm a home cook (not a chef by any stretch of the imagination!) and this is what I eat. I use my blog as a online cookbook to keep a record of my recipes that went well and I don't want to forget- so when I don't remember what I put in something I can just search for it and get cooking. I want to help others make healthy food choices and I share my recipes because I think they're a yummy way to do this.

I have been vegan since early 2010- You can read more about My Journey to Veganism here and on the Why Vegan? page. Since then I have moved to a whole foods, plant based diet and incorporated many more raw foods- so you'll find a range of more standard ingredients used in my older recipes.


I have struggled with depression, anxiety and disordered eating for years and am now enjoying each day and all the small things in life. I'm overweight but changing it one meal at a time- feel free to follow my progress on Almost Skinny Vegan Diet.
If there's ever anything you want to ask me about or need a hand with please leave a comment or feel free to email me. 

I hope you enjoy reading and find lots of yummy recipes to try! x
