Hi I’m Jamie. Welcome to Girl Eats Greens, where I’m taking a stab at releasing all that crazy creative stuff that’s building up inside me and unleashing it on all you unsuspecting
victims – er, fans. By day I work in television production, which means I’m constantly writing for other people’s voices. Here, I hope to find my own. (and maybe, just maybe, you’ll like it?)
I live in NYC with my pup, Madison – a seven-year-old yorkie bichon. She will probably get more face time than I will here, she’s basically the reason I take photos at all. She’s like a furry little child. Who only needs to be fed twice a day and chases balls until she can’t stand anymore. But I digress… Let’s talk about this “greens” thing.
It wasn’t actually my idea to go on this journey that has inspired the “eating greens” part of this blogging experiment. In June of 2012, I was talked into it by someone who shall now remain nameless. But I tried out the whole plant-based thing, tried it for a month, and liked it so much I haven’t looked back. Except for the occasional cheat.
But the one thing I’ve noticed in all the wonderful vegan cookbooks and blogs I follow is these cooks must have amazing kitchens. With amazing gadgets like Vitamixes and full-size ovens. I am somewhat kitchen challenged. I’m also not good at following recipes, I kind of do my own thing. But hopefully I’ll come up with some things you might want to try out yourself. I’m in favor of easy meals that are delish and good as leftovers the next day.
I am the proud new owner of a Canon T4i that I’m figuring out how to use, so there will be lots of trial and error there in addition to the kitchen. I do on occasion travel and also hope to post some fun travel excursions and vegan restaurant recommendations. Who knows where this blog will lead, let’s just say we’re on a journey and hopefully you’ll join us. Because after all, don’t you want more photos of this face?
