Welcome to Vegeregis!
Welcome we are Ania & Pawel, the couple behind Vegeregis. In our kitchen, we cook seasonally, using natural and fresh ingredients, avoid processed and refined food and at the same time we try to be creative and enjoy it!
All of our recipes are vegetarian and some of them vegan, as we believe that eating mostly plant based food is more environmentally friendly. Being conscious of what we eat and having witnessed how food industry standards and eating habits deteriorated over the years we began to feel worried. It’ is harder to buy full-natural products, a lot of food is sank in sugar and additives, people are less conscious about their diet and do not appreciate how what we eat influences our development, body and mind.
When and where it all started?
Our passion for delicious and healthy homemade food developed naturally through our relationship. When we started to live together in 2004 in London (UK), we were both vegetarian, so sharing recipes and cooking at the time was a very good start. We both grew up in Poland, and throughout our childhood were lucky enough to have access to fresh fruit and vegetables grown in the garden, the best homemade food and delicious traditional dishes prepared by our grandmas, aunties and parents. So, naturally we both have always opted for food prepared from scratch at home, rather than ready meals or take aways.
A few years ago, we did a sugar detox and it has completely changed the way we eat. Once we quit sugar and eliminated some foods from our diet, we started to be more aware what we put into our body. Naturally it lead to new recipes and remaking our favourite meals into nourishing dishes to maintain a healthy balance, well-being and what is the most important of all, enjoying what we eat!
One of the aims of this blog is to recreate some of the dishes from our childhood. Although traditional Polish cuisine is rather fat and meat based, for years we have been experimenting with vegetarian and more healthy variations. Also, through this blog we would like to convince everyone that trying to eat healthily is not so difficult and you can very quickly prepare simple, tasty and nutritious meals.
We both work in media industry, so Vegeregis combines our interests in photography and design with our passion for preparing a delicious food!
In 2018, after over 13 years of living in London (UK), we have moved to Toronto. Still fairly new to this lovely city, we are looking to explore its food scene, farmers markets and various seasonal and regional products Canada has to offer. We welcome any recommendations!
All photography is taken by us. At the moment we are using:
Canon Rebel T5 Camera
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II SLR Lens
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
and also occasionally mobile phones.
