Are you looking to find the courage to go vegan?
Tomi Makanjuola is an award-winning blogger and chef. She runs Vegan Nigerian, a platform dedicated to making Nigerian cuisine and the vegan lifestyle accessible to members of her community and beyond.
Vegan Nigerian began as a blog in 2013 and has since evolved to include pop-up restaurants, workshops and cookbooks.
Her book, Vegan Nigerian Kitchen, offers some delicious and easy recipes for anyone looking to try vegan food.
Tomi chose courage by leaving her job and starting her blog while never really knowing where it would land her. She just knew she had a passion for vegan eating and sharing it with others.
Although she started her blog anonymously, she realized she had to tap into courage again. It was time for her to get visible and put a face to her blog. And from there, one courageous step after another followed.
