My story

Reading doodle

At the beginning of 2018, while living in Australia, I transitioned to plant-based.

By the time I made the switch, I had already been vegeterian for a couple of years and this decision changed my life; for the better of course!

I started my Instagram page in January 2021 and since then I have been sharing my plant-based recipes through different socials.

I hope you find my place welcoming and inspiring. I am sure you will have a lot of fun while cooking plants as much as I do!

Let the glowesome journey begin!

My mission

Veganism starts with the consciousness that vegan is not a diet, it's a lifestyle. It doesn't mean bland and it is not a sacrifice or extreme. Veganism is joy, compassion; it means embracing a lifestyle that attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty as much as possible.

Whether you are curious or you have already transitioned to plan-based, Picky Chickpea made her mission to inspire and support you through your vegan journey with nutritious and delicious recipes.

Be glowesome everyday 🌱
